Re: Frontier DSL in NY Latency and packet loss issues
Well it may be fiber, but even it can have bandwith issues based on the technology and settings. Take my area for example where everything is fiber fed. My area had ran out of bandwith and had to boost it, but we had no packet loss, just high latency. When Frontier's fiber line was damaged, we had actually the proper speeds, but we had resyncing, packet loss and varied latency. Fiber itself has no limits.
Just take Frontier's fiber SONET ring to NJ which seems to have bandwith issues on busy days.
