The speeds quoted by BT are connection speeds not download speeds. Are you using ethernet or WiFi when running download test? You need to use ethernet not WiFi as WiFi is subject to interference from your surroundings
i have done a broadband check thingy on the 192.168.1.254 website and it said 205 mbps, i have done a speedtest.net test with a wired connection and it was around 204.38 mbps down and 48.02 up
Hi @nicklvh welcome to the community and thanks for posting, I'm sorry to see your broadband is running slower than usual. Can you post your Home Hub router stats and we'll take a look?
You'll get them by entering 192.168.1.254 in your browser, go to advanced settings then technical log information.
from your stats your look like you are getting as fast as your line can handle with connection speeds almost at attainable and noise margin down at 3.2

For all ADSL and WBC Fibre to the Cabinet (VDSL or G.fast) services, the stable line rate will be determined during the first 10 days of service usage.
Actual speeds experienced by end users and quoted by CPs will be lower due to a number of factors within and external to BT's network, Communication Providers' networks and within customer premises.
The Stop Sale date for IPstream is from 30 Nov 2012. The Formal Retirement date for IPstream is from 30 Jun 2014.
If you decide to place an order for a WBC fibre product, an appointment may be required for an engineer to visit the end user's premises to supply the service
In order to be eligible for handback, downstream speed should be less than Downstream Handback Threshold values.
