On 130MBit unlimited cable. During the day it is lovely and I can easily get around the 130MBit on speed tests and even on actual downloads. At night? Total garbage. According to various speedtest I am still getting the full 10MBit up but at best I am only hitting between 7 and 11MBit down. I can't say that I am particularly impressed with getting 8% of my rated speed.

Is there anyone else in the area and do you have the same issues?

Are you testing over WiFi or ethernet?

You saw my reply on Twitter, I am not seeing this kind of behaviour:

Wired. I rebooted everything after your tweets but if anything the performance had gotten even worse.

Speed will pic back up again during the night but it does make the cable semi-pointless at night.

Makes me rather glad that my UFB install finally went through on Tuesday. No slow down on that puppy :)
