Quick question, are you running with a default route from your
provider?   If so, you're better off either finding another provider,
or upgrading the router (if necessary) to carry a full table.   If
they do something to partition their network, you will see the
decrease in routes learned from them, provided you see those routes
and not the default route as asked above.
