Speedtest on 11 august: http://www.speedtest.net/result/911447853.png

Speedtest today, similar to every other day for the last 3 weeks: http://www.speedtest.net/result/942204050.png

A few days after the first speedtest, interleaving was turned on to stop the connection dropping out. Since then the down speed has been halved, and the ping doubled. Is this normal?

"The down-side of interleaving is that it increases latency (ping). This is because a single packet is spread out over several packets before it can be fully sent or fully received."

Yea I thought as much but what about the down speed?

Interleaving does *not* decrease your connection's bandwidth, but it will increase your latency a bit. Something else is at fault here.
