Returned from holiday to find broadband speed slowed badly and erratic

Just got back from hols and my line speed has fallen down badly, getting this result

I'm using a MAC and nothing else is running when the test above took place. I have an Asus RT-N66U router which is normally rock solid.
Any ideas what is going on? I should be seeing at least 50Mbps I think.

Are you connected via Wireless or Ethernet?
If Wireless, what speeds do you get connected via Ethernet?

This was over ethernet last night. Tonight over WiFi from my MAC laptop I get.

Intermittent issue of some sort?

Possibly, does this happened regularly at the same time each night? Are there any patterns to it that you can see?

Not sure that there is any pattern to this. I set up a ping monitor with f8lure which gave the attached results over the past 24 hours. There are clearly some response spikes but no pattern.
