So for a while now I ocassionally experienced a funny question but this month it became persistant:

Whenever I log into SL during daytime my latency increases by 2 to 30 seconds (yes not miliseconds - freaking seconds) It does not only affect my SL experience - it affects everything. Basically this does make SL unusable to me during daytime. It does not matter what viewer I use - as soon as I log in my latency skyrockets. I tried different accounts, different viewers and different 3rd party DNS services - to no avail, once I am affected it stays down until some hours have passed.

The curious bit is: Why only during daytime?

Do you live in UK? If yes, our speed had been drastically lowered since the beginning of the year and thus far never returned to normal. I assume it is worse throughout the day

Germany, but yeah I suspect something along that line too.
