Hugely varying connection speed depending on time

Is anyone having an issue where you would have a very solid connection for the majority of the day but then have literally an unplayable connection in a later timeframe? This is consistent as well. I would get speeds up to 72mb in the morning but mostly 10Mb or less after 6pm (in Canada)

@Pearly : This sounds about normal for a majority of broadband users once the kids have got home from school.

In fairness, it's not something that I suffered with for a few years now since switching to an ISP that is using a hybrid fibre coax implementation based on EuroDOCSIS 3.0, our speeds have remained mostly consistent throughout the day.

Kudos appreciated if deserved.

I suppose you're on cable as opposed to fiber?  Cable service has been notorious for node congestion.

If Bell Fiber is available to you, I highly recommend switching  They'll run a new fiber line straight into your house when they set you up.
