From here it looks like the same thing that happens when you exceed your data cap (packets dropped to keep speed down to 64k).

On the side, why packet loss, not throttling?

You can't hold packets in a buffer forever, eventually they have to be dropped...

Have you tried turning the modem/router off and on again?
