Re: [speed/latency] Speeds slow on 30/15 connection NH/ME

DNS is the protocol used to resolve URLs to IP addresses.

@myfairpoint.net

I would advise to use OpenDNS instead, as OpenDNS doesn't sell your information like Google is known to do with their DNS service.

Just received a voicemail from Fairpoint stating that there was an outage in southern NH yesterday and my speed issues should be resolved.

We'll see....

Could FairPoint have actually pushed that supposed fix they claimed they doing going to do in April?

Last night was the first night EVER since this whole issue with alter.net started that I went from 8PM to 12AM with absolutely no slow downs and latency as normal.



HudsonNH

@verizon-gni.net

Last night around 9PM I noticed my speeds were back up to where they were supposed to be (I have the 30/15 FAST connection). Today I got a call from Fairpoint saying that the upgrade has been complete and if I should not have anymore slowdown issues.



JGatsby

@myfairpoint.net

Got a call (voicemail) from Fairpoint today telling me that the nightly slowdown problem was resolved on the 28th. Last night seems to have proved (so far!) that they did indeed upgrade something, change carriers or both so finally, I think we have a resolution! It's been a long time coming so let's hope it stays up to speed!

Not sure how widespread the problem was. DSL here in Milford escaped the congestion problem. Speed test today is a tiny bit faster then normal. Interestingly Traceroute still shows DSL going through Alter.net. I assume the backbone changes only affect FAST (aka FIOS) customers.

Hopefully FairPoint now has enough capacity so these problems are a thing of the past.

@tom: This issue was affecting only fiber customers on FairPoint, not DSL.

@Gatsby: Confirmed. 2 nights = 0 slowdowns.

reply to exeter

Here in Whitefield mine was so slow last week until I called Fairpoint Tuesday. Was .81 download. Then that night speeds picked up. Now I have speeds of 2.81 upload. I never had that. They called and said I was switched to 3.0. I called customer service and she said they don't offer 3.0 in my area..
Whats Up....I'm afraid of saying something to have them switch me back to the old problems I had for years with slow times or DLS out completely days. Did they really get us better service here?

I assume you meant 2.8 Mbps download. That is typical for the 3 Mbps ADSL plan. Take a look at your modem stats. That should show exactly what your sync rate is.

1.5 and 3 Mbps ADSL are the same price - as long as it works no reason to drop down to 1.5.

If you are on fiber I don't know what the different plan speeds are.

/tom



captcaper

@myfairpoint.net

They told me at Customer Service if I did have it available it would be $2 more a month. I just did the Speak Easy test and it shows 2.80 download again. From tests in the past I never got those speeds.
Are these the stats? the up being 3329 is new I'm sure. Usually it's been lower..

Has FP done improvements here in NH to get more speeds to us?

DSL State Up
DSL Rate 3329 Kbps / 627 Kbps
Connection Mode PPPoE
Connection State Up
Connection Up Time 0:17:27:13

DSL Rate 3329 Kbps / 627 Kbps

3329 kbps is the download rate (toward the customer)
627 kbps is the upload rate (toward the Internet)

The sync rate for 3000/768 ADSL service should be 3360/864. Sync rate is set higher then advertised rate to accommodate various overheads so when running speed test the result should be close to marketing speed.

It may be that your line will not support higher sync rate. As to pricing that may be different by state. Here in NH 1500 and 3000 are the same and 5/7.1 Mbps service is an extra $4 a month.

Fiber is fiber. These ping are irreverent of your package. 15/2 should have the same pings times.

Alter.net is Verizon... I guess they were Fairpoints main transit provider and now it looks like they're using Cogent and some others.

FairPoint totally fucked up (pardon the language) by going with Cogentco transit.

I ping 145ms to the town right next to me, but ping 25 to Boston (it used to be 5ms to Manchester, 10ms to Boston on Alter.net).

Any connections made outside of the general Northeastern New England area results in extremely poor performance.

On alter.net, used to get 85ms to Europe servers. Now? 350ms+ to Europe.

Used to do 30ms to California from NH, now it's 100ms+ and download speed is literally cut by 90%.

Not sure what in the world is going on. Spent pretty much the entire morning yesterday routing through Cogent, then late evening the routing has returned back to Alter.net and has been so since.
