Slowdown each evening

I'm sync'd @ 77.5 & during the day get speeds of around 75. I noticed on Sunday evening  my download speed had reduced to around 12 but was back up to around 75 the next day. Both last night & tonight my speed has again reduced, tonight it's 15.11. I'm sync'd @ 77.5 still. Upload is ok. 

Ran the usual diagnostics, no problems shown. This is direct connection. It's the same on my Win8, Win7 & Ubuntu laptops.

I've ran both the BT speed tests, Speedtest.net & ThinkBroadband.

I've rebooted my router (not the modem). 

I'm on Infinity 2.

Any ideas or do I phone support?

Re: Slowdown each evening

I have the same problem, I noticed that this has started happening in the last week or so!

 

(Had BT Infinity Option 2 over 18 months now, sync at 79.9mb download and 19.9mb upload)

Re: Slowdown each evening

Sounds like network traffic due to users on the Internet.

 

Weekends and evenings the kids go on line with there xboxes and playstation and cause congestion on the network.

 

Does the ping latency go up also?

Re: Slowdown each evening

Been fine for a few nights.

Last night the 2 BT speed tests, Speedtest.net & thinkbroadband all showed varying results, worst 5.9, best 15.2.

Tried http://www.speed.io/index_en.html which showed 68731 down.

I wonder if it's as simple as contention on the popular speed tests?

 

I streamed Iplayer x2 (HD), youtube x2 (HD) & skygo x2 using 3 laptops. Also had Sonos streaming from Napster.

No slowdown at all.
