Hello everyone. I am periodically very slow internet speeds, download around 200kb/s.

Yes that is 200 kilobits per second! I am on a Telstra plan with 40Mb/s download speeds and much of the time get speeds in excess of 30Mb/s which is OK. But several times a week the speed drops to very low values. Speed test both with Telstra and with a third party tester (Testmy.net) give similar results. Nothing that I do with my gear improves the situation. I have to reboot the Telstra box. Several times a week.  I have recently built myself a new computer that has worked perfectly since being powered up.  Why Telstra can't get their hub to work for more than a couple of days in row i find really annoying.

Does the issue occur on all devices and have you tested on an Ethernet connection with Wi-fi turned off?
