Could anyone suggest why my broadband fluctuates so much. Sometimes I cannot connect sometimes the speed falls to less than half of normal. My service speed is 200mb/s, but I normally get 40-70 mb/s, I use a wireless connection.

@G_BAMFORD99Please don't create multiple threads for the same issue, it just clutters up the forum and won't get your issue resolved any quicker. I have merged your two threads.
I'd recommend a wired test as the best way to get a true picture of what speed your line is able to achieve. It also helps to pinpoint if the issue is with the wireless or your line.
Are you seeing slow speeds all day or only at peak times (typically 4pm-11pm weekdays and weekends)? Some areas are suffering with over utilisation, which results in very slow speeds at peak times but full speed at off peak times.

Thanks for posting! I am sorry to hear that your connection is slow and erratic, I apologise for any troubles incurred. I promise to do my best to help get this resolved.
I have tested the connection from here and I can see that both of your upstream power levels are too high. In order to resolve this for you an engineer will need to attend and carry out some further investigations for you.
I will send you a PM (purple envelope at the top) detailing what's required to proceed with making the booking. Please respond to me there and I'll get this sorted for you.
