Slow broadband and connection dropping


Posting here for the record as I can't seem to open a chat online with Customer Service - it's disabled.

My connection speed has dropped over the last week - was previously getting about 7Mbps, now getting between 2 and 3.

Download Speed (Mbps): 2.09

Upload Speed (Mbps) : 0.53

Ping Latency (ms): 102


I've seen quite a few 'LCP down' messages in my router log - would this mean a downgrade on my profile / speed?

Tested dial-tone, but we don't use home phone anyway.
Someone said there was a way of getting the line test to be activated - tried diagnostics on but this would not work for some reason.

Assuming that online support is not available due to Covid and wondering if this is congestion or something else.  Need it sorted soon as I'm back to work next week and doing a lot of conference calls online Sad
