Inconsistent NBN Speeds

[ Edited ]

I've recently upgraded to an NBN100 plan and am now experiencing massive inconsistencies in internet speed. I've read that it should be around 80Mbps throughout the day but I sometimes get drops as low as 1Mbps and it is usually hovering around 20 - 40Mbps throughout the majority of the day. I just wanted to know if this is normal behaviour or if there is something wrong with my connection. I have NBN Fibre to the premises which I thought was optimal for speed but to be honest I was getting more consistent performance back on the NBN50 plan which I upgraded from. I should also note that I am capable of getting NBN100 speeds as I checked on the first day of the new plan and was getting 80 - 95 Mbps and was only dropping to a minimum of 65 - 70 Mbps. Additionally my upload speeds are almost always faster or on par with my download speeds, right around 35 - 40Mbps, every time without fail, it's just my download speed which takes a pretty massive hit.
