Still bad. Now on a mission to stay awake until I can post a 10+ mbps test.

Not yet, but it will. Getting tired and wanting to go to bed though. Will not beat me! Looking for 10+.

Re: Slow speeds only in prime time hours

Ok, usually by now speed has recovered. Getting tired, will stay up a bit more to hopefully report result.

I give up, tired. Normally at least 10 mbps by now. Will post a test result n the morning, probably 20+.

Re: Slow speeds only in prime time hours

We just hoped on Gen4 this past week, and see similar here during prime-time (I'd guess 5-10:30PM), then 11PM or so back into the 20's and 30's.  We get fastest speeds mainly in the morning/afternoon, and a little decent bump back up between 11PM-2AM.  As soon as Bonus Bytes time starts it's back to slow again until between maybe 3-5 AM.

And I'm in agreement with BirdDog to say this isn't meant to be a complaint or request for help, only wanted to add to the pile and say you're not alone w/ slow prime-time slowdown speeds.

We know to expect slower during this time of course, as we've been customer for 10+ years, but it does seem like it shouldn't be this slow compared to the non-prime-time speeds.

Many tests in our account if any staff needs to check to send more results to the engineers.  Also many rounds of testmy results here too

Re: Slow speeds only in prime time hours

Hopefully, when all is said and done and the J2 satellite is up and running, things will begin to change, even if slowly.  The evening slowdowns will almost surely never be alleviated altogether, but an improvement would definitely be helpful for many.  

With that said, as I stated before, I, personally, have never really been bothered by the evening slowdown, even when it gets to sub 1Mbps speeds.  I just avoid doing things that require higher bandwidth, or downloading large files what would otherwise be done within a reasonable amount of time.  I don't notice any difference with anything else.
