Terrible speeds at peak time

Hi,

 

As the title says I'm currently experiencing terrible speeds at peak. My average speed should sit around 79mb on Fibre and I'm normally getting around 8-12mb download speed.

 

Please see below:

Gateway:

You are currently connected to gateway pcl-ag04.
This is located in City Lifeline House.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Terrible speeds at peak time

Just to add there's no difference between wired/wireless speeds and this is the line check result:

Estimated line speed:
80Mb (This may vary between 71.6Mb and 80Mb) - Checked on 2016-07-31 18:15:10
Current line speed:

Re: Terrible speeds at peak time

When you get slow speeds what result does the btw Speedtest give you?

MrSilver - Thanks for the reply.

 

Speeds are almost exactly the same as the one shown on speedtest. Between 8-12mb.

Re: Terrible speeds at peak time

Just to put things into perspective as to how things can fluctuate.

 

At the moment I have 2 Alienware Laptops connected to the internet, I'm working on one, my mrs is on the other, I'm also downloading a 50gb file and my speeds are more than acceptable. Circa 50mb d/load.

Why is there such a huge fluctuation at peak time?
