Xfinity browsing internet impossible in the evenings
For the past few weeks, browing the internet on my Xfinity becomes near impossible in the evenings. Ironically, I am able to watch UHD Netflix just fine at the same time (i.e. if I wanted to). I have a 1Gbps connection and recommended modem.
Things I have tried:
- Connecting various devices directly to the modem via ethernet cable, this doesn't change anything
- Restarting the whole setup
- Things work great during the day with the exact same setup
- The same devices work just fine when connecting using my phone's internet
I am out of ideas. My theory is that somehow during the evening the video/netflix load is very high in the region, and xfinity prioritizes those streams for good user experience, however this causes other internet traffic to ground to a halt.
