Massive drop in download speeds / flaky internet connectivity

Anyone else having problems right now? My download speed has crashed to about a meg! Looks like I have full upload speed. Router has synced correctly and I can't see any problems at my end.

Why did the speed drop for you? Mine has never changed/dropped.

Not sure, started at 80 when new and has slowly gone down over time

That doesn't sound right; it shouldn't degrade like that. The wiring inside the house all good? Noise on the line? Router working normally?

Think the wiring is ok, BT engineer installed the modem a couple years ago, router is ok appart from flakey wifi, might give BT a call as their line test only shows its capable of about 60 now
