Very slow download speed every evening

For the last two weeks my download speed drops from 100 to sub 10 mb/s every evening between 6pm - 11pm on both ethernet and wifi connections. Is anyone else experiencing similar issue? Service status says there are no issues in my area.

Re: Very slow download speed every evening

Could you access your router using http://192.168.0.1/ . Don't log in, select the 'Check Router Status' option and paste your 'Downstream', 'Upstream', and 'Network Log' tabs?

We can see if there is anything in the router stats that point to a localised, rather than an area, problem.

Re: Very slow download speed every evening

@Jacek369 Your image of the log has been rejected as it contains MAC addresses and this is against the forum rules, to protect your privacy.  If you copy and paste the log the forum will auto censor the MAC address for you.

Slow speeds only at peak times (pre lock down this was typically 4pm-11pm weekdays and weekends, post lock down it can be all day during the week) but full speed at off peak times is normally a symptom of high utilisation/contention in your area.

Somebody from the VM forum team should be along in a few days to check your connection and can confirm if there is a known issue with your segment of the network.

Having said that, the upstream power levels are at the top of the recommended range which is not ideal and might need a tech visit to adjust them.

Re: Very slow download speed every evening

Hi Jacek369

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community. My apologies for the lower than expected speeds. I've had a check on our systems and can see there is a congestion issue affecting the service. Fault reference F008057679 for your records.

 

The estimated fix date is the 29th July 2020.

 

Kind regards,
