why has my speed dropped

Ever since I have been with plusnet my connection speed has always been 1.1mb. Today, for the first time it has connected at 1mb, and at the momment its connected at 819kbps. Any ideas will be welcome.
Iam on the 2mb plus

Is your line on a maxdsl exchange? If you have been migrated it may be the line teting out speeds before finally settling on the fastest.

Also believe it or not the line speed can change dependant on the weather. mine does. When it's cold my line stats can go through the floor when it's warmer they return to normal. if you've been maxdsl'd and the weathers poor the line speed could be adapting to that.

Also check if you've installed any new phones etc or put something heavy on your phone cables. My line stats also went through the floor when I used the built in phone ext. Now I'm wireless to the main socket.

Just a few ideas hope they help.
