Does this look normal for a BT ADSL connection?

[link to this post]

I live around 3.3 KM from my exchange, and get around 4.5Mbps downstream sync speed.

The connection is under heavy usage from streaming, web browsing and gaming most of the time, so that might explain the constant max ping spikes?

I am using a Billion 8800 NL R2 Modem/Router.

Just restarted my router and changed my IP so right at the end it'll be red.

Yikes! But there is a short "rest period" at about 15:30. If that is when streaming stopped for a few minutes then things might not be too bad in general. If it was independent of your usage I would be concerned that someone is leeching off your connection.

I recommend stopping all activity for a defined 30 minutes startng at an hour point, and see if we get a nice clean patch. Or at any point if hitting on an hour point within a couple of minutes is difficult.

Fix a new BQM of course smile.
