Brantford evening congestion

There has been a consistent pattern of congestion for me in the evenings. Daytime speeds and ping times are fast. Evening speeds and ping are all over the place. I've seen ping times in the triple digits.

VOIP quality is affected by elevated jitter , streaming video services are always buffering and web browsing can be very unresponsive at times.

This issue started happening immediately after the 2 day outage that we experienced back in mid January, which also coincided with the date when the new speeds profiles were available.
Before then, I had never seen any sign of slowdowns in the evening and was usually able to get max speeds on speed tests, with ping times in the low 20's.

Here are a couple of the test results. They are both done after a modem reset with the modem connected directly to the computer, although the tests with the router are identical.

Anyone else in Brantford experiencing similar results?

If you PM me your account # I can see if there is known node congestion in your area.

Dont think Ive noticed any slower speeds at night lately, but to be honest, dont think Ive really tested it.

I'll run a couple tests tonight and see what they produce.

I have ping envy. Why are mine so high? What part of the city are you in?

Congestion is back. It's gotten slower and slower since about 6:30 pm.

Yea, that is very likely node congestion.

Have you called in for a ticket yet? Might be worth investigating as that's a pretty unusual drop.

That's just speedboost, it boosts that download speed for the first little bit of your download. »www.rogers.com/web/content/speedboostonsb
