      Little update.

      My speedtest is now running a bit higher and real life throughput is faster (350KB rather than the 12KB we were experiencing on Tuesday through Saturday).
      Obviously it's 18:00 on a Sunday, so not the best time to check speeds so we'll have a look tomorrow. Seems that something has been changed for the better somewhere.

      Seems fine for a Sunday night here.
      My wife says she streamed a movie on Netflix earlier and all was good.

      Did some Thinkbroadband tests and it seems to be working as one would expect at peak time.

      Would be nice to have some feedback as to what the problem was, but I'll guess we'll be in the dark.
