Sounds like your ISP is oversubbed like mine (TDS.Net Zip 37385).

I have a 3000/512 DSL line, most of the time it has a usable speed of 2000/300 and can even drop to 1000/150.

At about 3am on a weeknight I get the full speed, most of the neghbors are sleeping.

They have got too many people on the outgoing line from your Telco in order to have a stable full speed connection for the average number of users that are online at any given time.

In other words, they have sold of something more than they have to hand to the customers who bought it.

Many Telcos do this.
