Sounds like a router/modem problem. They don't throttle and if it's a line issue, won't be just randomly few minutes. Try a new router and if that don't work, modem swapIAmBatman wrote: ↑Jul 18th, 2018 6:16 pmBeen with them for about three months now. Overall I'd say I'm moderately satisfied, but still annoyed at times. When it's good, it's good - currently testing my speed from upstairs computer (wireless router on the main floor) and consistently hitting 67-72 mbps, which is about advertised. However, many times throughout the day the speed will crawl down to 1-2mbps, or just cut off completely. This usually doesn't last longer than a few minutes, but it's the intermittent nature that gets annoying. Not sure if it's our router/modem or if they are throttling the service, but this was never an issue with Acanac or start.ca. It's still a great price, but Fido is also offering a 75 mbps for 12 months at 32.50 right now, and I am tempted to switch over if the inconsistent speeds continue, but I will give them another chance for the rest of the month.
My old router (only 1.5yrs old) was causing issues like you are having and I swapped it and it's been great since
