Download speeds awful since yesterday - up to 500kbps on a 60mbps line

Morning!

 

Having real trouble with internet speeds since yesterday. It's been one of the fairest days in my area so it can't even be down to bad weather!

 

I can't even load https://speedtest.btwholesale.com/ because some wise guy decided to use a 1916x1077 background image which my browser is struggling to load. Fast.com is reporting speeds in the range of 100-500kbps. My router speed test is reporting the same, even after a reboot. My network throughput is minimal, not streaming, downloading, uploading, etc.

My plusnet account says my current line speed is about 50mbps (I think - I currently cannot see this, as it's stuck on "Loading Speed Data" in my account), what's going on? Cheesy

Fix

Update: PEBCAK? Rebooted our dreytech modem and it's back up to normal speeds. Not sure what's happened but it's all sorted for now!
