Should I do a soft disconnect on the router?

I've noticed in on my High Speed Broadband stats it says:
Estimated line speed:
62Mb (Accurate to within +/- 1Mbit) - Checked on 2013-03-24 09:11:39
Current line speed:
59.8 Mb
I've not had any change in IP address for around two weeks (although on dynamic) + my BT IP Profile is currently 59.8. Should I try a disconnect on the router to get the latest profile increaseHuh?
Thanks

I don't know what you think the problem is
The current line speed matches the IP profile

PN systems sync with your BT IP profile by remotely resetting your ppp session. Last week when my BT IP profile had changed, my router logs showed a ppp session disconnect/reconnect at around 5 am the next morning, and my current line speed then matched the IP profile.

I'm going to say no as I can't see an issue, let us know specifically if you do have any concerns.
