Very frustrating. Every night between 7-11 my download speeds on my 75/75 plan slow to a crawl. After several calls to Verizon tech, still the same problem. We have determined that there are no issues on my end, so I can only assume its on Verizons. The interesting thing is that my upload speed remain perfect during the evening hours.
Hello, We noticed that you posted the same question on DSL reports and have replied to you there as well. We would love to help and resolve this issue for you. I understand that it happens between those hours and it can be difficult to isolate that type of issue. When it does slow down, have you ran a speed test or a trace route to see if any packets are lost?
I have the same issue, however, only the upload speed is usually affected. My speed should be 50/50 and it recently tested at 50/1 . A few times, download speed will slow down a bit to around 35, but upload is primarily affected and is reuglarly below 15 at night during those times.
Yes. I run the speed tests thats how I came up with a loss of at least half of my download speed. Haven't run a traceroute test yet. How do I go about doing that. By the way, when I run the speed test off another location other then NYC, the speeds are normal.
I'm experiencing the same issue as the OP. My speed is supposed to be 75/75. When FiOS is working normally it speedtests to 84/91. During evening peak hours (usually around 7-11, sometimes 8-12 or thereabouts), it decreases to 5/91. Pinging google.com 100 times shows me 4% packet loss. Pingtest.net shows me high pings and high jitter.
Things I've tried (and have failed to resolve the issue):
Releasing and renewing my IP address
Unplugging my router for 15 seconds, then turning it back on
Unplugging my ONT and disconnecting the battery, then plugging it back in and turning it back on
Switch from automatic DNS to OpenDNS, run connection tests, then back to automatic DNS
Every night since at least the 17th, possibly farther back and I didn't notice it.
I myself was going to call Verizon customer service today after work about my speeds. I've been testing with the verizon speed tester and speedtest.net, and I get 5/25 on both when I'm paying for 75/75. I haven't even been on my computer for almost 2 weeks (so absorbed with Destiny on 360 lately) so I didn't quite notice, but it might explain why my connection keeps dropping. Some website connections time out or act as if I'm not connected to the internet, with no noticeable signal drops from the computer (or smartphone, as well), and I also have dropped ping requests to google.com.
Don't remember what time I tested the past two days but this is certainly aggravating. And I do not use Netflix either, so if this is part of the netflix throttling I have no idea why I'd be affected unless the network is being -that- bogged down by netflix users (yet I've never had problems like this before in the past year).
