Speed drop that started fairly recently

I've been with plusnet a couple of years now now and have always had around 76-78mb download speed but recently it's dropped to around 65mb I was wondering if this is a permanent change and what is causing this sudden drop in speed.

Re: Speed drop that started fairly recently

Have your pings had any noticeable increase when the speed dropped?
Also what modem are you using?

It should say ECI or Huawei but at a guess I'm going to say ECI as mine has "Telecom" written on the back next to ECI.
If your pings haven't had any increase then it's not the issue I'm thinking of unfortunately.
