Draytek 2820 problems?

Not sure what has happened but we have 2 neighbours with no dsl who are waiting for radio engineer to attend island microwave exchange. They made use of me having no problems for a week and then mine went down from approx 6.5 Mbps to just above dial-up. This was back up to speed the following day but a couple of days later it failed again but was much worse. I have been using a Dratek 2820n with another kept as spare. and a bt wholesale test was giving between 0.5Mbps & 1.0 download and  usually unable to measure the upload.
The spare Draytek 2820 gives exactly the same results yet when I tried an old TP-Link TD-W8960N I got upload of 0.37 and download 2.9Mbps which is less than half the speed I normally get and hasn't changed in the last few days.
Not sure what is wrong but I reckon its extremely unlikely both routers got the same fault at the same time. Anybody have any views on the subject?
A specialist radio engineer is due out tomorrow to see if he can find a fault with the 2 dead connections so  it will be interesting to see if that has any bearing on the problem. Just Plusnet customers that are affected whilst  the 4 BT customers on this exchange have no problems.
Not too worried whilst we have some service to share but just curious about the router problem
