Speed now dropped to approx 2.7 mbps!

Haven't had speed issues for a very long time now. Yesterday evening, decided to run the Plusnet speed check just to see where things were - 6.5 Mbps - no complaints there. This morning, everything just felt slow. Several tests later, and all I get is between 2.7 and 2.9, and this is off-peak! The VP at the exchange is green. Stable rate at 6500. Could anything on my profile be changed (I'm nowhere near my download limits by the way)?

Hey there,
Can I ask if you have tried running any other speedtests at all, to see if it might be a problem with our one?
I'll just run a quick check on your line...

I have. The reason I ran it in the first place was because I'd noticed a slow down in my download speed.

That's fair enough.
I've completed that test I was on about and there's nothing apparently obviously wrong with your telephone line.
I'd really need you to try running a BT Speedtest.
This should show your throughput speeds from BTs perspective.  Let us know how you get on.

BT Speed test came back with 3.4 (I assume you can see the results yourself).
