Have had 2 engineer appointments and am currently in contact every few days or so, and had my line to my house (from external drop wire) replaced, had a replacement BT homehub 5, had my connections re-terminated at the cabinet and at the top of my DP (as an engineer said that they were loose when checked), however I would just like to post for the record that my line seems incredibly unstable still, even with all the work that has been done, as can be seen below with lines 1-12 from the helpdesk page, my SNR has dropped significantly, however my speed also has, and my max data rate changes from anywhere 26-70mbps as and when it feels like it.

you really appear to have a bad line problem from the 2 sets of stats you ave posted and the dslchecker results are you still in contact with the mod who is helping you?
Yeah I am still in contact with said mod, he is in contact with BT Wholesale and is re-contacting me tomorrow, I seem to have had a lot of drops today though, and in particular the fact that earlier today I had 40/10, and am now on 25/10 with a max data rate of 28mbps, although it was at 60mbps earlier today.
Just a follow on from my last message, I put that "it was at 60mbps earlier today" meaning my MAX data rate, not my actual data rate, as I am on infinity 1 (was done as my line "couldn't handle" infinity 2, after 3 years of constant stability...)
Here is stats from earlier today, for comparison...
Sun 15 May 2016 07:24:39
SNR (Up): 10.4
SNR (Down): 9.0
Upload Data Rate (Kbps): 9999
Download Data Rate (Kbps): 40000
Max Upload Data Rate (Kbps):18109
Max Download Data Rate (Kbps): 60513
just stick with the mods as they will help until resolved. Certainly looks a problem with your line not only the drops in connection but the huge fluctuations in attainable speed. My attainable fluctuates a few mbs over a day normally retuning to starting point the next morning
Yeah, I will do, just wanted to post these here so that I could refer to them, and refer mods to them if needs be, as no engineer seems to understand if I try tell them stats, such as max data rate.
It has gotten even worse, and has just dropped at the same time that I recieved a call on my home phone, these are now the stats (after it has came back up):

Are the mods still helping you?
Yes, I keep getting various enginner visits, in which each engineer carries out seperate work which seems to do absolutlely nothing; for example, my SNR has never been at 17db, and after the work to "fix" my line I am getting this... and random speeds, my line also appears to be capped at 29mbps, but as you can see I am getting around 23mbps...
