I connected on 17th Jan at a constant 75mb (or extremely close) and 18.5mb up that was via ethernet and wireless.
The last few days with nothing changed has seen speed tests drop to just below 70mb download and around 14mb up.
Why would this be?
It could be because of noise or fault on the line causing DLM to lower the speed to stabilise the line. If the line stabilises DLM will start to slowly increase your speed. This could take a few weeks to achieve. I suspect that BT will not do anything about a drop from 75Mbps to 70Mbps which you would probably not notice with out doing a speed test.
Could it be because I did a hard reset of the router in order to try and rectify the issue with the wireless dropping down to max 40mb download (see my other thread I started on these forums)
If that is the case how can I be sure that the DLM will start and will indeed get me back to the speed I know the line is capable of?
One reset of your Homehub should not have caused a problem. It is only if you do repeated resets that DLM may kick in. There is no guarantee that DLM will restore your speeds to what you were getting and as I said, I doubt BT will do anything to help. They will no doubt quote your estimated speeds and that you are within the range.

cheers, just seems a tad ridiculous that the first time I turn power off to the hub 5 since January and now I have lost 5mb download. Yes its not much but come on, why should it happen?
I know it has as I do at least one speed test per day to check.
yes Gareth my upload seems ok too.
Are BT aware of this ridiculous situation, what can we do?
Did you reset your router too Gareth?
