I've had a problem with my internet connection for a week or so - the speed dropped from ~4M to ~2.5M and the last couple of days it's been dropping out and the router reconnecting every half hour or so - annoying.

So I thought I'd look into it today.
First things first: ISP website, check line - OK. Doesn't help much, if it's an intermittent problem, but...
Then follow their basic checks: connect to the Test socket directly. OK, I'll try it.

5M straight away. WOW!

It's working, and I'll see if it's stable and stays up, but if that means I have to redo the house phone wiring, then fine - I'll happily pull new cable for an extra 20% on the fastest I've seen here! OMG | :OMG:
