That mid evening spike may be Children in Need starting; I forgot that was tonight - at least until I tried to log onto a BBC server and found it very slow to respond.
Comparing your connection to others who are in different exchange areas is almost pointless irrespective of ISP. There are many variables such as exchange congestion, line quality, backhaul routing, contention, etc which will be different for Aquiss users in other areas. If you want to get a more realistic comparison then you need to ask Aquiss customers connected to your exchange (eg neighbours). Ditto for IDNet as I've noticed you've also asked on their forum for user feedback...otherwise its deja vu all over again.to get a better understanding of what other Aquiss customers are seeing, so I could more fully understand whether there was something out of the norm that I was seeing.
as it does seem to me that Ian has a BQM graph that I would expect, whereas there does seem to be an external influence on mine. Certainly out own use of the internet does not account for the BQM pattern we are seeing.
Kits may be, but I am not, just the bog standard 80/20.Kits,
Just reread your post and missed the fact that you were on a business connection. I believe Ian is the same. If you are connected through the Manchester node and not seeing any impact, it suggests have a business connection makes a significant difference. Mine is absolutely fine out of normal working hours, but does suffer during the working week.
Still check out your BQM graph and struggling to see the 20x peaks you are mentioned in your last post. Certainly can't see anything worse than about 30ms spikes over the last 24 hours against an average of what looks to be ~9ms.
Ok. Not sure where I picked that up from. Apols.Kits may be, but I am not, just the bog standard 80/20.
