It doesn't seem to increase significantly in the middle of the night when I've checked - I can't imagine all the holiday makers here are online at 3am.
I live in a town with no holidaymakers. Back in Feb, before the pandemic, I could get speeds of 80 to 100 Mbit on my 60GB smart SIM in my iPhone XS. In April, thanks to lockdown, speeds were 10 to 15 Mbit.
Now some people are back at work during the day, I’m getting 30 to 45 Mbit, but nowhere near the 100 back in Feb.
Many people are home working, and with unlimited data on 4G, some will be using home broadband, and some using their mobile data. Especially if the home broadband is slow and being used by the kids etc.
Schools going back may reduce load next month.
(My work phone on Vodafone shows similar drops)
