    I just changed my internet plan from a 15mbps plan to a 5mbps plan. I am 99.9% sure the changes have not taken place yet but I saw an immediate change in my internet connection. Speeds dropped from 1.8mbps and started going crazy.

    I had full bars on my router and download speeds started averaging 10-20kb's. Downloads would start and then randomly stop downloading.. occasionally speeds would hit 250c kb's for short periods of time (1-2 minute) and then tank back down or stop downloading all together. Once or twice speeds jumped back up to 1.8mbps. I tested everything by downloading videos on youtube (videos would start loading fine pretty fast and then completely stop loading). I turned off my router and the connection went back to 1.8mbps so I assume this was a problem with my router. But I am just wondering why it happened now after I changed the plan. The internet has been going smooth since I got the router it just doesn't really make much sense to me. Has anyone ever experienced this? Thoughts suggestions are appreciated.
