ADSL speed dropping below and lag much higher

Level 1b



Over the past 2 weeks my ADSL2+ speed has dropped to an unacceptable level that is now causing severe latency issues with online gaming and general internet usage. Prior to this I was getting 13 Mbps and now I am getting below 4 Mbps down and barely 0.4Mbps up.


I am connected via ethernet cable and have run through various power cycling tests, reset my modem configuration and disconnected all devices apart from the main PC and nothing has improved. Below is a speed test of my current connection.

Can I please have someone investigate.


Kinda regards,
