Slow Download speed past 6 p.m.


[link to this post]
 
Hi,
has anyone else suffered from this problem?
Been with orange home broadband for two weeks and the connection to internet is fine, hoever when trying to download my speeds are fine in the morinings (8500mbps) which then steadily decreaese and disappears by 6 p.m. numerous calls to support line in which promised call backs that never come. Spoke to one adviser today and asked if there was any record of my calls, which there were not! how can they trace my history if they are not recording my call history? i was then accused of swearing which i had not, i work in customer service and know the easiest way to get cut off is to start swearing. Tried all the tests nothing has worked, any suggestion?

8500mbps in the mornings - that's hot!

Nothing after 6pm - that's really icy!

Sorry never suffered that problem frown

Seriously though, 8500Kbps throughput (?) in the mornings and then very slow throughput speeds in the evenings possibly suggest a congested exchange or a source of noise that's killing your download speed.

Posting your router stats might be useful in order to perhaps analyse the problem?

With ADSL2+ one might expect a downstream data rate of ~14000Kbps with an attenuation of 32dB and a Noise Margin of 3.9dB. Your ADSL2+ downstream data rate (sync) is 9563Kbps which may be on the low side and would explain your downstream throughput of ~8500Kbps.

Can you connect the router into a NTE5 test socket and thus eliminate any possible effects of extension wiring, which may include a bell wire that is liable to pick up noise, and post your router stats as soon as possible after the broadband connection is established?

Some information that may be relevant, i downloaded and tried a VPN program which was on a trial period, as soon as i activated this and it masked my ip address my download speeds went back up to maximum! What does this suggest?

Sorry don't know anything about VPN...did activating it cure the slow speeds that you suffer in the evenings after 6pm?

The suggestion would be that the slow speeds are down to traffic management operating on the Orange connection.

And that VPN traffic is not managed, so escapes the management. What protocol were the downloads using?
