are you running the speedtests on wireless or wired connection?

The speedtests are on a wireless connection as I have a macbook which does not have an ethernet port. My xbox one is the only thing that has ethernet. Regardless, its clear to see the sharp drop between around 4pm and 11pm, to the point where conducting normal internet activities is nearly impossible.

I can see the drops but that could easily be interference on your wireless conenction from neighbours or something inside your home    you need to use ethernet to do the speedtests before BT will help

Hi @Conzooo I tried calling there but missed you, I'm really sorry to see you've been having problems with your speed during peak times.

I can confirm that the problem with your connection speed was caused by congestion. I contacted our suppliers Wholesale this afternoon and they advised that they rebalanced the traffic on the SVLAN's last night to alleviate the problems you have been experiencing recently so you should notice an improvement this evening. Further capacity is due to be added before the end of the month to prevent issues such as this recurring. 

Can you test your speed tonight and post back to let me know if your happy this has been sorted?

Apologies about the late reply and missing your call. I can confirm that the speed has gotten so much better, i am able to do things online at night now and it is just as fast as during the day. Thank you so much for sorting this out, i genuinely do appreciate it.
