I'm also sure this is nothing to do with anything within my 4 walls or across my property. My bet it's Orange/BT, as this current situation of 0.2Meg download, with 0.5Meg upload has happened once before.

I certainly had some action last time, with a "free BT Engineer's visit" and a new Livebox router, which produced considerably improved upload & download speeds, and a more stable connection ............... up to 24 hours ago
