Peak time speeds


[link to this post]
 
Using an EE FTTC 40/10 connection, line syncs at the full speed and throughput using various testers is typically 37down & 9up on muli-threaded tests.

However, over the last month to 6 weeks the connection at peak evening times has been slow when several devices are in use. After some testing, 8-9pm typically sees download speeds drop to 16-20Mbps (multi-thread) but single thread speeds around 4-6Mbps, which probably explains buffering when tryiing to watch now tv & netflix in HD.


Has anyone else experienced peak speed drops as much as this on EE?
Am i correct in thinking they have oversold and have congestion somewhere?

Please:
  1. Post your full router stats & Uptime.
  2. Link to a wired TBB speedtest result graph both at peak & non-peak times.
  3. What exchange are you on?

The BB connection is perfect; the peak time speedtest isn't.

Check your IP Profile. Run the BT Wholesale Performance Test (ignoring all the red instructions) and on the initial results page click Further diagnostics at the bottom. The IP Profile is given in the text box.

Just to rule it out - 347 hours is fairly long, can you do a reboot and retest?

A BT engineer was out today.....
I could have a long rant at this point but end result, they replaced the master socket and seemed to think that would fix peak time speed issues.

Speedtest now,

Clearly no different.
