Nowt like slow BB to boil the blood . . .

My connection`s been fine for a long time until now. . .  I have unlimited BB and it`s gone real slow.  I tried 3 mobile wifi which is used with  the caravan and it was 3 times as fast.  Download speeds of 140-160kb/s isn`t brill is it?  Hope I don`t have to go through the usual hoops again.  It gets tedious. . . . . guess it`s better than losing the hair I have left and - I always have 3 if I need a fast connection!
Come on guys!  Do me a favour . . .

If you want help from the community, you'll need to gather the information requested in the speed issues thread, as that is the only way we can see the data to advise.

For some reason DLM dropped the profile on your line.
It seems to have corrected itself today so you should start to see better speeds over the next 24 hours.

The speeds you reported are very poor for anything other than the very longest of phone lines, however in the absence of figures it is not possible to advise.  If you can gather some objective data then we can offer further assistance.  Variable DLM / profile is indicative of something which requires closer examination.
As for going through all of the hoops, until you get the issue bottomed out, you are likely to keep coming back to this point which is clearly frustrating.
