    Sentence construction

    Please help me with the below sentence:

    John, I sincerely apologize for not responding to your email on time. As we were facing some technical issues from our end, we weren’t able to respond on time.

    I am worried about the usage of "on time" twice in this sentence. Is there a better way to say the above statement.

    Please advise!

    Change the first to earlier or the second to sooner.

    Isn't that a Connotation.

    Would that (earlier) be the best fit in this context?

    Please advise!
