Shockingly slow speeds at 3AM..

Nothing to do with WiFi, everything i'm testing is running on Gigabit ethernet with a gigabit link to the router.. On speedtest.net i got this:

Ping ms
17
Download Mbps
266.21
Upload Mbps
36.79
 
On fast.com powered by Netflix, which seem to throttle us all anyway, 190Mbps!
And ThinkBroadband? All over the place, not really managing to burst past 400Mbps, yet i'm on M500 and did achieve this speed after a Router reboot..
What the heck is going on?! It's 3AM! Internet and streaming is 'working' with the odd page load delay again. It's getting a bit worrying..
Kind regards,
Lee

Re: Shockingly slow speeds at 3AM..

At that time of morning there's a good chance of network or server maintenance going on, somewhere on the multiple links between you and the test servers, so it is distinctly possible that capacity is hobbled, and it may or may not involve VM's network?
