A Question on Contention and other things

I was maxed a couple of weeks ago and encountered quite a few problems which I now seem to have resolved. Primarily I think my microfolters were the root cause and now that I replaced them I get this kind of result:

This is great and I am very pleased but I do have a couple of questions.

1. If I don't use the connection fro a while, any where from a few hours to a day, it slows down and I find that I need to unplug the ADSL cable from my router and plug it back in to "bounce" the connection. It then performs very well, but why is this so?

2. The performance is worse during the week compared to the weekend, is this related to contention and is it worth upgrading to a business rate?
