Hello there,

 

So recently, (as in the past few months), I've been experiencing a weird slowing of my internet speeds at night around 8-11 PM, sometimes even starting earlier than that. I play a very competitive game every night around that time, and it's almost impossible to compete because of this very frustrating issue.

 

At first i thought the problem was my modem, so I contacted my ISP and got a new modem and installed it. This didn't really help the problem. I then thought the problem might be with my router, so i bypassed my router completely and accessed my internet directly through the modem. The problem still persisted, so I called my ISP again and they sent a technician out this afternoon. He claimed that he "fixed" some things and that it should be all better. Unfortunately whatever he did didn't work and the problem still stands.

 

If anyone can give me some advice on how to fix this issue please do so. if you need any information just ask and I should be able to get it for you. 

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention not only does the problem affect my download and upload speeds, but I also get very high latency jitter (anywhere from 10-300).

It may be because your neighbours are using the Internet when you are. Try changing the wireless channel in your router's settings so there is less interference. You need to type in the IP in your browser that is listed on your router to access this.

This isn't working. I'm using a wired connection if that means anything.

If you run a test a https://speedtest.net how does it compare to other times of the day?

I have a 20 down 2 up plan, and during these times it reduced to around 11 down and 1 1/2 up.

 

I live in a very rural area so there aren't many good ISPs out there.

^This was my most recent one, that's pinging to a server about 20-30 miles away and it's one of the better results.

^this one is pinging to a server a bit further way, but not by much.
