Might this all be part of the "cross Ontario" slow DSL speeds at night? Is that just a disconnect from PPPOE session or is it recommended to reboot modem as well?
The "slow speed on DSL" complaints span both Ontario and Quebec, which is to be expected if it is caused by Bell re-arranging their network.
To try getting bumped on a different link between the BAS your DSLAM is connected to, all you need is restarting the PPPoE session, no need to reboot the modem. Every time you try to authenticate on PPPoE, Bell's BAS forwards your request through a pseudo-random link to TSI and that becomes the one you land on.
