I have this same problem over the past week. It's not like suddenly thousands of users moved onto my node and are sucking up my downstream. It happens like clockwork every night. My download speed drops to 500k/s or less. It essentially renders my connection useless for watching TV shows.
You don't need thousands of users. It could be the difference of adding a few new cable customers to the node and it goes from being overloaded to extremely overloaded.
