peak time fibre download speeds

[link to this post]
I would be very interested to hear what download speeds folk are getting at peak times on their fibre broadband. By peak I mean between the hours of about 7:00PM and midnight.

Image of my test results performed by my SamKnows box:

It runs tests at midnight, midday and 6pm. Then it does hourly between 7pm and 11pm.

The results almost always come back at 71Mbps or 74Mbps, with little obvious correlation to peak hours (8pm - 10pm).

When you look at the average speed for each time of day (averaged over the month since fibre was finally live here), you get

The lowest of those averages is 71.4Mbps at 8pm, and the highest is 73.2Mbps at 10pm.
