    Why the Internet speed is not constant the whole day?


    Puzzled about the constant fluctuations in Internet speed & efficient functionality? Know from experts the reason for this & get tips on how to have a steady Net speed during the course of the entire day.

    I have tried the usage of Internet early in the morning, during the day, in the evenings and even during late evenings. The speed is the same and sometimes very slow, giving us anxious moments and even getting annoyed as the page won't get uploaded that easily, Is that a problem with my computer, or is it that the Internet traffic is a lot & the browser is getting jammed, or the net connections through gadgets have any problem? Even at this hour, the page gets stuck up for a while and then resumes, which affects my performance and thinking level. Any suggestion to get rid of this?

    Internet speed depends on various factors. Some times it may be the problem of slow loading of websites. But if problem is coming regularly. Check
    1. First check whether your ISP plan provides you what. Like some ISP providers gives you more speed at night as compared to day. Some ISP providers Limit internet speed after certain amount of data usage. It is like after you used high speed internet of monthly quota, your speed will be downgraded to certain amount.
    2. Clear your internet browser cache after sometime.
    3. If your windows is very old and taking lot of resources, kindly check with your windows task manager. You can increase your virtual memory of your windows.
    4. You can also increase ram of your windows, if you do multiple work.
    5. Defragment your hard disk to free up some space in your hard disk. etc

    There will be always some difference in the internet speed basing on the service provider, the connection you got and the number of gadgets connected at that moment. From a single service through the router if we connect a number of gadgets automatically there is a chance for a reduction in the speed of the internet. Sometimes the service provider may be facing some problem and he may be rectifying that problem. During that time also there is a chance for the reduction in the speed of the internet. Another point which comes to my mind is the distance between the router and the place you are working. If the router is on the first floor and you are sitting on the second floor, the speed may be less. Again the quality of service depends on the service provider also. In our area, we have ACT line and their service is very good. But BSNL service was not very good and Airtel also is not up to the mark.

    Internet after dinner time/night has a good speed, in the evening loading of ISC takes a long time for me. Reduction in speed after the monthly quota is over (as mentioned by Mr.Rahul) sounds more likely.

    In an area the internet service provider will provide certain bandwidth to its internet customers. If the usage exceed that limit as more people are on the net and downloading big files etc there will be congestion and certain people will be on queue waiting for the completion of their task. This will eventually look like slow down of internet.

    The same is true for common lines feeding to many clients. So it has a definite connection with the load. Whether it is a tower system or cable or fibre optics all will be affected by the load factor.

    So the nodes or supply points having more band width will handle the load in a better way and customers in that particular area or locality will not find so much reduction in the internet speed.

    Going by the same logic the internet speed everywhere will have fluctuations during the hours of the day depending upon the total load of clients. It will have a pattern with respect to the office timings as well as home users who will be mostly using it in evening or late evening.

    Theoretically speaking in a high bandwidth area having limited clients with occasional use the internet speed will not vary much.

    Internet is a jungle of various nets each having their own bandwidth and load factor and each of them will experience a different speed change during the hours of the day.

    Knowledge is power.

    I do not have any forma technical education in this subject. But as an internet user,I also face similar issues on day to day basis, So by reading from various sources, I have devised certain simple answers and justifications for my own satisfaction and comprehension.

    Internet is also a traffic and use of space termed bandwidth. Just like the road traffic, we get to move freely and speedily when traffic is low. We get almost the entire road for walking in the morning times. But by and by the road becomes full with traffic and then we will no get easy space and have to move with less speed. Then, again it becomes less congested late night.

    Internet traffic also is similar. We get speedy connections to sites and good download speed during lean traffic times and get throttled and bottlenecks during heavy traffic. Sometimes when the traffic is heavy, the regulators create some controls ad diversions also. In internet also there may be automatic in built systems of distribution and control or by specific intervention. The speed restriction also may be based on one's allowed use and actual use exceeding the fair usage allowed. Such Fair Usage Practice restrictions happen in 'unlimited' categories.
    (I would welcome correction by Technical experts if my understanding is wrong)

    Internet service providers offer the transfer of the voice and data through the copper cable through ADSL connections. These broadband connection have some level of loss. Though they claim to have fiber optics, however the connection given to us are still the copper cable and the connection levels are still limited to the ADSL and the broadband of upto 100MBPS capacity.

    At each tower where the cables are connected there is some level of loss. And during the seasonal and day time changes the wires go through some level of the noise and the loss of data. This is usually minimized through fiber optics but we are faraway from using them due to telecom operators and ISPs not investing on them upto consumer level.

    So you are going to see the change in speed as the loss may happen on each repeater and the points. That's the reason behind the variation in the speed.
