No ISP can guarantee low latency for online games. Your ISP has no control over the route taken between you and your game server. It is this route which controls your latency.

Internet speeds will always drop in the evening, kids home from school, people home from work all going online although your drop seems excessive.
Have you had BT check the phone line in case there is a fault.

I appreciate the fact that usage will increase in the evening but I think that even the most sceptical would accept that the latest speed test returned a miserable 0.6mb download. You need to bear in mind that for three years adsl24 had provided me with a solid connection of around 5/6mb at night and 7+ at day time. BT have checked my line to avail and my attenuation is sitting at a very low 5.5, so there is no reason for this. adsl changed their wholesaler from entanet to murphx in feb and this is the time that connections went down

Who is your ISP ADSL is just the type of connection. Have you contacted them to see if they can do anything. Sky changed something at their end giving me an extra !mb download.

please read the first line of my original thread. I am aware of what adsl is. I have been in contact with them and thanks to their persistent poor service I have a bt profile of 7150 reduced to 2000.
