Re: FiOS - Ethernet Instead of MoCA!

Wow! Thanks for that FYI. I will post the info once I get Verizon on the phone and they make the change. Obviously they are really busy this weekend.

Verizon switched it!

Here is that ping difference to the first hop upstream router (note that the gateway IP changed):

Before the switch (from the OP):

Pretty interesting. So using the Coaxial (note you may need to if you have TV through FiOS) adds almost 7-10 ms to the ping!

should read "in my sample, 6 to 9, averaging 7ms" since YMMV applies.

Everybody knows a GrammarNazi. I freak out on inaccurate analysis. Sorry. Nice results, any way expressed.

Why are you pinging two different servers, then comparing them? Shouldnt you be pinging the SAME destination?

His IP (and subsequently, his gateway) changed whenever his connection was switched from moca/coax to ethernet, as a result of the DHCP release/renew process.

Not all of Verizon's IP's are in the same (sequential) IP pool/subnets for one area.

Have to update my results post, I wasn't pinging my Internet Gateway. Here are the updated results after the switch to Ethernet from MoCA:

Pretty interesting. So using the Coaxial (note you may need to if you have TV through FiOS) adds almost 2-5 ms to the ping!
