irratic speeds

Over the last few weeks I have noticed the speed of my 2mb connection grind to a halt on a regular basis. Whislt I understand over all usage on the network at the time can slow things down I do not expect the drops in speed I have recently experienced. See below for tonights varitaions from 498 all the way up to bt test results of 1725 when using the bt test domain/realm.

Surely the difference between results when using the bt realm against the plusnet realm suggest plusnet need another short term fix.

I'm starting to loose my patience, I can't rely on getting a decent speed on plusnet anymore.

can someone from plusnet please advise why these speed vary so much plusnet v's bt realm?

many thanks
