Extended holiday. Router/Modem on or off?

Normally when I am away from home for a week I turn off all my IT equipment, including the Plusnet router but not the BT modem. I'm going to be away for closer to 3 weeks this year. Should I be doing anything different? Perhaps I should have been leaving the router on but I've not noticed any drop in speeds when everything is turned back on.

If I am away for more than a few days I always turn all my equipment off including the router and BT modem and never have any problems when running them up again.

Yes, you'd be fine to leave it off. Powering if on and off multiple times would eventually cause speeds to be lowered.
