Do EE reduce transmitter power over weekends?

Do EE reduce transmitter power over weekends? I notice that although normally I get 3 signal bars (out of 4) over  weekends this reduces to 2 bars. Download speeds seem unaffected in spite of this, presumable due to reduced demand.

You say reduced demand but could it be because more people are at home over weekend so more people are connected to the mast?

Hi Leanne,

I am actually signed up to receive alerts and I do get them and currently all seems  well so I don't think this situation is the result of network faults as such.

 

Thanks anyway though.

Hi Brendon,

I did consider that but as the situation seems to start in the wee small hours of saturdays when presumably most people are  asleep. It really isn't a problem for me  as  download speeds seem unaffected, I'm just intrigued as to possible reasons

Ok, thanks Chris so now I can forget that possibility but am still intrigued as to the cause.

Hi Leanne,

 

Err, do I by any chance owe you a big thank you or is it just by coincidence that the signal strength has now returned to 3 bars?

 

Either way I am still grateful for your responses.
