Can't say I agree with that my friend as I have an up-to-4MBps connection and game fine. It's more about latency and the amount of people sharing the connection which have an effect on online gaming (the second one isn't so much of an issue on high-speed connections however so higher speeds are preferable in gaming).
I do have some experience similar to the issue in hand which was back when my house shared it's Internet with a number of others (before they switched me from a BT rented line to a dedicated, ISP line). The issue arrises because of other users tend to use the Internet during those times and sleep during the times when you get good speeds.
The only way to fix this is to contact your ISP and see if they can switch you to a dedicated line as opposed to a connection-shared one. However, I doubt it will get you anywhere as you are on a cheaper package and that might be one of the reasons it is so cheap (we have a more expensive package which is why our ISP eventually switched us over).
With regards to latency, you should make sure you use a wired connection or at least are close to the router if using a wireless network connection. It might also be a good idea to run a "PingTest.net" check and post it here (do one both in the daytime and in the nighttime for comparison).
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but that's how it goes with us slower-Internet users :/
