NBN FTTP slowdown and high latency in the evening

Level 2

No problems during the day, trash connection in the evening.


From 50mbps down to below 10mbps. This has been a regular occurence in the past month. I started logging everything a few weeks ago. Seems to resolve itself for 2 weeks and have had normal speeds in the evening but slowdowns started again last 16th June.


Here’s the speedtest and traceroute using ethernet connection with no other device connected.

By 6:30 pm as if on cue, everything slows down and speeds won't be back to normal until 11:30 pm. I don't believe this is just a normal congestion during peak hours because the line quality drops significantly.


CVC, throttling issue?


and Yahoo has been very slow in the past week on the TPG network. This is just very frustrating.
