Hey, so I'm on Slingshot's 250GB plan.  Works great for the most part, slow's down a bit at night as you would expect with a cheap ISP, but streaming Spotify past 8PM at night seems to be a right pain.  Songs I haven't previously listened to, just stop and start (In High Quality btw).

Anyone else having issues like this?  Seems pretty crappy of Slingshot to struggle to stream such small amounts of bandwidth like this at night.

Speed tests at night at consistently high (13 Down/1 Up/17ms Ping in NZ)

Hi, 

Do you have any uploads running while you are having issues? 

If you are getting consistently good speed test results like you are then I would suggest isolating your network with one computer using one service i.e spotify. One by one add other pc's and programs until you notice an issue.

You can also Pm me here and I'll take a look into your account from our end.

Cheers, 
Ben

Hey Ben.

I don't have any uploads running at night or downloads.  I only had my laptop streaming spotify since my PC is in parts waiting to be put in a new case.  Streaming is great during the day, soon as peak time approaches, spotify starts to buffer alot.
