      Re: why does speed drop at night

      You're on Connect which is a rebadged BT service prone to network congestion at the busiest times of day.

      PS You also have a very noisy line. This won't be the cause of the slowdown but it will be affecting your connection.

      Re: why does speed drop at night

      i have run a new cable from box outside to a master bt point adjacent to router cable is less then 10 meters long will it still pick up noise from other bt master how can you tell the line is noisy which part of advance stats tells you that
      if i know what part to read i can play about with the bt master downstairs until i reduce noise
      thanks

      See the second part of the router stats sticky (which I wrote )

      The cabling and faceplate help forum also has some useful posts: basically, fit a filtered faceplate and/or disconnect your ringwire. Avoid using extensions for your router.

      Since last Sunday I have been getting this evening slow down, when apart from the first weeks when I first started using Sky I have never suffered from it. Right this minute my download is 1094 kb/s and yet it was almost 7000 this morning.
