Connection being throttled?

Hi, I've been with plusnet for a long time now and lately it seems to be a lot worse than it used to be.
1-2 days minimum a month we'll get random d/c's throughout the day, and quite often late at night regularly.
Rarely this coincides with listed maintenance on the site, but most of the time not.

Last night I left a video uploading and I get up this morning and it's barely uploaded anything. I check the speed, and it's only uploading at 20-40 kb/s.
Confused I do a couple speed tests to check, and it's registering at 0.1-0.2 Mbps.


I'm on Plusnet Unlimited and have never noticed any drop in my upload speed like this before.
My normal max speed is around 130 kb/s.

I'll wait to see if it improves but I'm getting increasingly frustrated with the drop in quality of Plusnet the last year or so.

Has anyone else experienced this?

So after a few hours of no change I rebooted the router and speeds went back to normal.
However I'm still confused as to why this would happen anyway?
Was it something Plusnet did which rebooting the router fixed?
