If there is congestion on the EE networks at that time, you sim will be slower, that is normal

Mine does the same this is the EE network throttling what is an Mobile Virtual Network so that proper EE customers can get the best service possible,

Always happens, every network all the time.

I doubt EE would throttle down that much, even when they give priority. If they are then their own customers speeds would have to be dire

Re: Mobile data throttling,my unlimied data sim

The problem with Virgin is being an Virtual Network. EE customers often have access to 800MHz 4G that gives better indoor coverage. Also they have moved to being what is called a Thick MNVO which means they handle everything themselves other than signal. How much of your data goes through EE and how much Virgin is hard to say, every chance the slow speeds are down to Virgin backhaul.

As for the NAT problem there is certainly nothing you can change your end.

Thanks for the post.

 

We wouldn't throttle any data as this is an unlimited data SIM. 

 

You can check the coverage in the area here.

 

Thanks, Emily.
