Speed drops after high usage for 5-10 minutes

Hello everyone,

I recently upgraded to the Cox 2Gb internet plan and have been encountering a frustrating issue with speed throttling. I can achieve download speeds of up to 1.6+ Gbps, but this only lasts for about 5-10 minutes. After this brief period, my download speed drops dramatically to around 50 Mbps.

Rebooting the router temporarily resolves the issue, restoring the high speeds, but the cycle repeats itself, requiring frequent reboots to maintain optimal speeds. This is particularly inconvenient when downloading large files.

Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Is there some sort of bandwidth limit? Any advice or solutions would be greatly appreciated
