Has anyone noticed slower speeds, mostly in the evenings.  My speed during the day is 15-30 mbps.  For two weeks now starting around 6 pm CST, my download speeds drop to below 3 mbps.  So I called the 888 customer service to be told the issues were related to hardware (I've had for 2 years now) issues.  It is VERY ODD that my hardware has issues beginning at 6 pm daily, only to be back to 15-30 mbps in the morning.  Viastat is slowing my internet down to make me comply with buying Easycare.  WT.?

It is due to primetime beam congestion. It is not due to any other conspiracy theories that people come up with. It is that simple.

I, just take a cold pill, and my congestion goes away.
