After 3 and a half hours I finally spoke to some fool at BT who insisted it was a major problem engineers are working on and BT would inform all customers in the next day or so - I wait with baited breath! Oh and what a surprise, 12:00 comes and my speed starts rising again.
BT are a joke and need investigating - hope my watchdog email works.
Can't wait for 18:00 tomorrow and 2Mbps again!
Nasty throttling rip-off merchants.
Guess what? OK here again too. Isolated incidents Eh? Dont make me laugh, BT are reallly taking the **** here. Not impressed.
And still nothing on the Service Status page!!
As expected :
Just before midnight :
Just after midnight :
The odd thing is I am on Dunfermline exchange , and Speedtest says I am less than 50miles from LONDON.
LOL 00.14 and wow almost back to normal speed,normally 37Mb but now
bet 2Mb tomorrow again 😛
bad bad Bt .. watchdog here i come
Incredible - now up to regular speed after midnight - South Oxon RG9.
This must be throttling going on.
and the roundabout continues...
5PM - 11PM
11PM - 11:30PM
11:30PM - 12AM
midnight - ? (probably 5PM)
I forgot to mention when I said I don't see the point in emailing Craig, I do see the point in contacting Watchdog and The Reg, and I'll be emailing more news outlets every evening this continues, or until this gets the major media coverage it needs to give BT a kick up the a**e to do something about it.
Same here in Warwick - 2MB all evening and then come midnight, back up to 37MB.
Blatantly throttling, blatantly false advertising, and blatantly worthy of independent investigation and legal action if necessary by the relevent bodies.
This is not a technical problem, it's a deliberate BT policy to turn your "infinity" into your "paltry" 2MB at the peak time when you actually need to use it.
Public relations disaster to follow in the morning once the technology press gets hold of this....
