Hi and Welcome to TSG!
I had the same problem once, and I am with AOL.
I phoned them and got told about their new service which means that your "subscription" should renew every 3 - 5 days, and which ever speed you get when it renews, is what will be "locked" if you like, into your connection.
I found that if you are doing something that uses a lot of the bandwidth, i.e playing an online game, or downloading files etc etc, your speed will be lower.
AOL did however do some things their end aswell, and it was as good as new within 3days.
SO it is worth giving your internet company a call, and seeing what they say.

Kind Regards
Anthony

Not important at all, forever what reason it skipped will not effect you in no way.

MANY reason for this.
1.Your ISP is having issues or updating.
2.There is a main down in your area causing reroute . right now there is 8 backbones down (usually only 3-5)
