Hi, my line seems to of been upgraded to ADSL2+ in the last few days, since then my connection has reset a few times and synced at below acceptable levels 3Mbit for example, but after i reboot the modem it goes back to around 17mbit, then like 6-8 hours later it will go back down to 3Mbit

Has anyone else had this problem ?

What modem are you using, some chipsets, (Ti/Siemens in particular) will exhibit this type of activity, but normally when agrevated by line noise issues.

I have a few suggestions

1) Restart your modem and test to see if its at high speed

If it is syncing fast, pick up a phone, dial 137 and hang up
Your phones will ring
Pick up after about 5 rings then hang up again
repeat this a few times and then check the speed of your modem.

If your modem has dropped in speed, i suggest checking your filters.

2) Check for line noise
Plug in a corded phone into your modem's outlet.
Call 0800-000-000 and listen closely to the voice message. See how clearly you can hear the voice and listen for any clicking or wooshing sounds in the background

Problem with this though is that it can be intermittant, or after rainy periods as water leaks into your line.
