Why has my speed dropped ?

I am supposed to be on the 55/20 package and have averaged 44/14 for quite a few months but in the last few weeks my upload speed is roughly the same but my download has dropped and settled to just below 38 Mb/s.


I've included the chart from samknows to show what has happened.


Since I have not changed anything I can only assume that something/someone on Plusnets side has changed my package.

Could someone look into this please.




Edit: Ok not sure what is going on, just done a BT speed test (twice) and got the following results:

Download speedachieved during the test was - 82.92 Mbps
 For your connection, the acceptable range of speedsis 40 Mbps-40.36 Mbps .
 Additional Information:
 IP Profile for your line is - 40.36 Mbps

Upload speed achieved during the test was - 10.62Mbps
 Additional Information:
 Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 20 Mbps

Something definitely weird going on

Re: Why has my speed dropped ?

Hi there, 


I've just looked into this and we've not made any changes. 


I can see the speed profile has changed in line with BTW's but that's currently at 40200kbps 


I suggest trying the checks here as your next port of call:
