      My internet started off at 7mbps, now its about 3.

      I used to enjoy speeds of about 7mbps down and 0.3mbps up on the Mid package. A few months ago this changed to around 5mbps down and 0.5mbps up. This annoyed me, but not that much. Then very slowly but surely, this has deteriorated to 3.5mbps and 0.5mbps up. This has annoyed me quite a bit. What's happening and what can I do about it? I am quite a heavy line user but even on quiet months the speeds remain.
