Slowdown on Cable? (McNicoll)

Any one else experiencing this? I powercycled both router and modem and my downstream looks like it's being capped at 4mb; upload is fine, pings are as well.

I'm getting some packet loss as well. only 50 pings to teksavvy.com and I'm getting 4%.

I'm seeing the packetloss again....

But now that you mention it, the speed is down too... like big time.

I wonder if McNicoll has a 100mbit or Gig-E backhaul to TekSavvy. This was discussed in one of the cable threads, that some links were being upgraded...

Ahh, I was hoping you'd see this! Well, at least I'm not alone.

weren't the upgrades done a few weeks back?

Not sure... The fix for packetloss was done by Rogers a couple weeks ago on McNicoll, i dont know if McNicoll had Gig-E or it was scheduled to be upgraded or not...

I guess we'll find out tomorrow morning. If all is back to normal and no packetloss, that means it was congestion of some kind.

Packetloss is as bad as before. The gig link sure doesn't last long. WTF?

hmm, well whatever it is, hopefully it gets resolved sooner. I'm not going to make another thread in the direct forum seeing as how you've done that already.

but oh god if that was congestion, that'd be pretty bad. Although I'd imagine congestion would come gradually, instead of being hit out of nowhere and to such a degree. I mean, there couldn't be THAT many new subs, right?

Well i'm guessing its different than before. Because when the packetloss was there before, the speeds were great. It did affect browsing speeds, but not download speeds, at least for me...

Now everything is dog slow including downloads.

actually near the end when the upgrade was about to happen, speed is very much near this during peak time.

It goes from 0% since the upgrade to this state, whoever screw up, nice job. Online gaming is unplayable again.

No more p/l anymore currently. The moment I saw my torrent spike from 100KB/s to 300KB/s avg, I know that gig link must be up again. So fragile...

everything seems to be going better now, although I'm further away from my max on speedtests as I was before. I'd usually get somewhere along 9.8-9.9mb but now get 9.4-9.7.

Anyone from TSI care to fill us in on what happened?

I'm at work now, but I ran a line quality test, and it seems ok.

I hope this was a one night anomaly...

My recollection is that the upgrades were for 3 POI, including McNicoll, but I may have interpreted wrong. However, if this is on Rogers, I hope it doesn't happen again for a very long time.

Sorry guys, in the process of upgrading the link at the moment. That one saw a crazy jump in traffic in the past few days and was unexpected.

We are in the process of getting a 10gbps connection with Rogers so this will no longer be an issue.

Ok, so it was backhaul congestion. Any ETA on that 10gig link?

We've already managed to saturate a 1Gbps link at McNicoll? lol, and we don't even have powerboost.

lol, it seems the other POI's need to step it up!

McNicoll is the leader. We take down the 1 gig link in 2 weeks.

That's actually pretty impressive.

Especially since, based on the speed tests we were seeing, assuming the router deals with congestion fairly nicely, it would appear that you guys peaked at over 2GB demand.

I'm getting 8, which isn't terrible. What's more important is the packetloss for me.

ETA?
