Can you put your telephone number into http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome and post the results (after removing your telephone number) ?
It sounds like congestion if it happening at "peak" times and you can get congestion with Infinity so the customer service rep was wrong there.
It might be worth checking if any of your neighbours are experiencing the same and if so you all need to keep complaining to BT about it and they should get onto Openreach about increasing capacity.
My current deal ends next week so I have been looking around for a new one. Regarding your statement "It sounds like congestion if it happening at "peak" times and you can get congestion with Infinity so the customer service rep was wrong there."
This is what it says on the BT website for unlimited packages :-
Congestion is not the same as a restriction put on by the ISP. Congestion basically means that there is insufficient capacity for all the users at the same time. It is not BT ISP that is restricting or slowing you down.
Not a very good analogy but think of it as a motorway at midnight with little traffic, you can travel at 70MPH. The same motorway at rush hour where you can only travel at 40MPH. There are no restrictions other than the volume of traffic. If however there are variable speed limits in place then that is a restriction put on to limit / manage the flow.
Thank you for explaining the difference, although it does not make it any easier for people suffering speed drops, whatever the reason.
