    Somebody posted the other day, can't remember who. When you get to a certain level on a daily basis they limit the download speed. I think the evening thing is because you have been downloading all day, it must reset at some point.

    I've noticed that I can get speed like the one above early on but by the evening it's down to about 500-600K.

    My current speed is 1.52MB but I haven't downloaded as much today as I did yesterday.

    Someone mentioned that last week, if you download more than 5GB or something during peak time, they cap you at 5mb for like 5 hours or something. I only had the chance to test it today and it's true. Either that or they're diverting the bandwidth from the scummy bit I live in to keep the posh bastards like JP happy.

    To be fair I think I can live with downloading 5GB a day. Particularly if it's during peak times and if even then I can continue downloading as if I only had a 5MB connection. .
