[Speed] Astoria, NY - SLOW

Slow speed during the day, half the advertised rates or even less, sometimes speed improves after midnight, sometimes it doesn't. Paying for 75/10 speeds, but getting more like 25/2. Why bother paying more and not receiving the advertised paid for rates?

Astoria speeds are horrible right now at 8pm EST. I don't know what's going on but I'm getting 2mbps and paying for 25.

Just tested 9:40pm Wednesday with RCN's speed test, nowhere near 75, more like 40.

Testedusing Speedtest.net below, much better results, maybe RCN's speed testing is broken?

Run another test, nowhere near advertised down rates.

This is a definite peak time issue. Morning speedtests get the full 25/2 but it slows to 1~2 mbps during 7pm-12am. Does any RCN techs know what's going on here? I heard something about equipment being replaced but it takes time..
