Sudden drop to 20/16 from a very stable 78/16

Just checked my connection speed and it is consitently down to 20/16. Modem is connecting fine as always at 80/30. I've tried two different routers and both give the same results. This is a long established FTTC connection that has rarely strayed from 78/16.
BTW speed test attached.
Does this look familiar to anyone? I've logged a fault ticket but no response as yet.
It's as though it has suddenly been capped at 20MB somewhere.

Many thanks Jim. Just got off chat and a disconnect/connect of the router has sorted me out.
