Flaky connection after minor speed increase

New Plusnet 2 router on 13 April on old 40Mbps connection before upgrade to "full" FTTC. That happened on 17 April and speed increased to 54Mbps, took a day to settle then ran continuously until 30 June. Speed then increased to 57Mbps and there have been four line-drops since then, three today. What's going on?

This is the log:

Re: Flaky connection after minor speed increase

Hardly worth worrying about, but at least your speeds are creeping up.

Re: Flaky connection after minor speed increase

Various devices including my phone don't reconnect after the line drops. So it is worth worrying about. I'd rather the speed didn't increase if it pushes the SNR to a point where it fails.
