Re: [Embarq] Current slow connection

Started to notice issues here in Eastern KS, notably around Gardner, KS routing. During the evening, the ping is mostly-normal, no packet loss if you conclude 0.1-0.2% is normal, but there's apparently a fair amount of jitter/latency spikes (going from 5ms to 200 to 800ms) going on with the centurylink/embarq hops.

The speed tests are netting between 2 and 8mbps during peak hours. A lot of websites are sometimes quite slow to load. While in FPS games, watching things rubber band is highly annoying. In MMORPG games, like Rift, I get teleported backwards or watching people in mass just stop doing whatever they were doing and then all hit an enemy all at one time.

It's starting to get somewhat annoying now. I wonder when Google fiber will extend south of Kansas City, Ks/Mo. Not to sound like a band-wagoner, but those speeds are highly appealing and quite desirable for such a price compared to the cost i have for 10mbps down/640k up. =(
