May not be under your control. Try running tracerotes and keeping track and help your ISP isolate the problem. When you say 17% packet loss that tells me it's unlikely on your end or something you can fix. This has the makings of an ISP issue, IMHO.

Use the following guide. How do I run a traceroute The location you want to trace is the destination, for example is Bleeping Computer. Keep a log of the trace routes to various sites or the ones specifically you have problems with, and see if there is a common 'hop' that consistently show speed drop off. Then you can do ping tests and see if that coincides with your packet loss and slow down issues.
