Bell technician saying Bell throttling my internet....

I currently have the old Performance plan with Bell in which I get 6mbs down/1 mbs up. During the daytime it generally works fine for torrents, gaming with playstation, netflix etc. However....once 4:00 PM rolls around the playstation becomes unusable only for gaming until about 11:00 PM. Torrents still work as does Netflix. According the the Bell tech that came out, I am on the old copper line technology in Bell Aliant territory and will probably not see any upgrades in the future as I live in a small community of about 600 10 minutes west of London (Coldstream). The connection issue is relatively new and seems to have only developed over the past 3-4 months. There is apparently nothing wrong with my speedtests which all show I am getting the speeds I am entitled to... however in real world usage...gaming is not possible due to lag, connectivity etc. Is there a reason why ONLY my gaming is affected during the evening time frame when things start getting congested and not my torrents or netflix? Any truth to the tech telling me that Bell is still throttling? Thanks.

Chez nous entre 1 am et 5 pm, mon ping montais a 700 ms pour montreal , download 0.5 et up 0.02

Pas de fttn et encore moins de ftth a mon adresse juste du dsl

Resultat : Congestion.
Mes voisins devait probablement telechargé leur matériel explicit/illégal pendant cest moments la, peux pas croire qu'ils vont streamer ou faire des videos conférences sur skype entre 1-5 heure du matin,

Seul moyens, moi ca pris une plainte pour que la congestion s'estompent, ma pleinte indiquant au moins une installation FTTN ca pas encore été fait, ca sert a rien d'appeller un tech pour chez toi si c'est generalisé dans le quartier, fais une plainte et 3 jours plus tard ils te telephoneront chez toi ( moi ca été très rapide, le gars savaient dequoi il parlait, qualifier, toute, il a meme été en mesure de me dire quand a été le dernier update a mon C.O et ca datais de 2002 lol...

Je te souhaite bonne chance avec ca ,

Perhaps the Glasnost test will confirm this for you?

There is no more throttling.

Bell has stated they're not throttling. There's likely some other geneal congestion issue you're facing, just like so many in small towns all over the palce.
