Peak time broadband speeds drop


by David Allen

Recent research by broadband.co.uk has confirmed something that most broadband users have known for some time, that connection speeds drop during the peak hours.

However, what most users do not know is how much it drops

The average drop in speed can be as much as twenty five per cent, according to calculations based on a night time average speed of 4.534 Mbps, a day time average speed of 3.8 Mbps and a peak time average broadband connection speed of 3.38 Mbps.

However this will vary between internet service providers.

If Tiscali is taken as an example, then their connection speed drops by almost forty per cent, while with others the difference may not be so extreme.
