The Internet sucks so much in the evenings. It is so slow. Both cellular and home internet.

Hi Cannon,
I couldn't say specifically why you have internet troubles in the evenings but I can speculate at a couple possibilities. Evenings are always the highest usage periods, so depending on your location it's possible you may be affected by congestion, this is an issue we have been struggling with in a few rural communities.  It could also be internal congestion, not just network congestion.  In the evenings most people are home using the internet and creating load, watching Netflix, playing games and just regular surfing.  All these things alone usually aren't a problem but doing all those things at the same time can certainly cause internet to be slow.  Now again, I couldn't say if any of these things are affecting you specifically, you'd have to speak to our tech support crew to get more direct answers, but these are some common causes for internet trouble that are often noticed in the evenings.
