Speed throttling or congestion ?

Past few days i have been seeing that during peak hours (9pm-12am) my speed was slowing down from 50Mbps to 2-5Mbps. On Sunday usage should be high and if network congestion is the problem then it should go down but it was alright whole day.

Today it started happening at 4pm so i used speedtest and found these results.

Speedtest on Indian servers was showing speed of 3.8Mbps but speedtest on fast.com(netflix) US was showing its usual 40-46Mbps.
Speed on steam was also fine 6MB/s as well as IDM.
Played on SEA servers and that was fine too, didn't try csgo's indian servers so cant comment on that.

Right now at 9:30pm it is fine but it was happening again like 15min ago but didnt last long, so anybody knows what's the problem ?

I usually notice when im watching a youtube video and suddenly 1080p video starts buffering which is strange since on 50mbit it never buffers even at 4k.

I have seen it happen mostly after 9pm.

Just now i did speedtest and it is showing 1.94mbps and fast.com is showing usual 40+
Youtube is playing 1080p video without buffer too.

It's congestion and that is the reason I moved back to Excitel. Hathway never goes down but several times in peak hours, speeds reduce drastically. In my area Hathway is almost everywhere (excitel hardly anyone has), so leads to congestion.

Well i still think it is congestion issues. I really doubt throttling is the reason. I might be wrong though.
