Default Your broadband speeds

my broadband speed is 2MB, well 1.8mb, and its with aol, the only problem i have is at night say from about 6pm till 1am, the connection drops 2 about 256kb, which is really bad. i dont think its aol i think its the BT exchange, we can only get a top speed of 2mb here atm, well it says on BTs website "Our initial test on your phone line indicates that you should be able to have BT Broadband with a likely maximum speed of up to 6.5Mb". but doesnt it go from 1mb, 2mb, 8mb, 24mb? does anyone no why the speed would drop so much?

Verizon camed up with this new connection its not cable or dsl its fiboroptics. much faster and not expansive. Soon they also will be offering TV servicess, so if u have like House phone service with them, mobile phone service, internet service and TV service they are offering big discounts.
