Re: [AB] BB50 and shaw a waste of time if you want to use netfli

I am having the exact same issues. Prime time is horrible for some reason. Oddly enough when I run a pingplot to the netflix.com servers I have only about 100ms latency and very little packet loss. If I plot to the content servers that netflix is using everything goes to shit.

Could you list the content servers?

Same thing tonight... but pinging the content server with ping plotter doesn't really reveal anything.

The content server I was hitting was. ipv4_1.lagg0.c035.sea001.ix.nflxvideo.net which resolves to 198.45.53.144

Tomorrow i'll bring my work laptop home to prove a point... i'm guessing I'll have the same problem on that laptop... until I fire up my VPN connection to work. So i will still be using my connection to Shaw, but the traffic will be routed to my work before getting to netflix. (they don't use shaw at work)
