Re: Anyone else having connection problems atm?

There is a fibre cut in Toronto that is affecting internet connectivity for some cable users and the majority of wireless customers.

Well, why don't RIM oops Rogers just reroute around the affected lines? Surely Rogers can't be that incompetent that they let half of Ontario go down.

Who's running the tech show at Rogers? Bozo the clown??

The first thing you would build into a network is a backup system..........

Where's all these "Network upgrades" we get ripped off for yearly??

there's over 50% packet loss between Cogent and Rogers right now because of the cut and lack of capacity. only way around it is to wait for them to fix the cut fiber so so capacity can be increased.

if you have access to a VPN provider or can tunnel your data through a route that doesn't go through Cogent, it should be a lot better.

edit: i read above mention of a cut, is this confirmed anywhere?
