200ms latency during evenings from around 5pm till 12:30am

Level 2



You can tell from the traceoute is that the connection to the router is fine, then it jumps once leaving the property to the TPG server.

I didn't say much, because while I had a hunch, I never really go all out making predictions. I have an IT background of 25 years, but I haven't been interested in networking for ages...


But I can definitely read a traceroute.


It was definitely TPG. I churned to Aussie Broadband in that time. I only got connected to ABB today, but every night at around this time I was getting 200+ ms with TPG. Everything in the house is exactly the same, all wifi, same router/modem, everything. Traceroute at the same times as I was doing with TPG.


Wireless interference lol.

@going2churn having exactly the same problem. I'm already on NBN50 FTTP and it's trash in the evening and there's only 2 of us using the internet. Latency is >200ms and speed slows down to about 10mbps. I guess its time for a switch.
