Re: First 2 weeks with Start....so far not impressed.
said by Greenalderbe:I don't think that Rogers is doing any limitations for Start or any other ISP out there.
mtu is at 1500.
Last three days of testing;
With or without router..no change. (My modem is the DCM476)
Past 3 evenings (10:30 ish)Netflix and FTP (single thread) pulled between 2 - 5 mb/s.
Past 3 mornings (7:30ish) I can sustain 30mb/s+ with both.
Due to the consistency (nothing changing on my end), it must be a network issue. Does Rogers limit Start and the Indies somehow? Odd that this crippling congestion only appeared after I switched from Rogers
For some reason i still believe that this has to do something with he.net routing.
Some time ago, there was a problem with HE.net Chichago, and lots of sites out there was not reachable, or they were very slow.
How i see it (but, i might be wrong), correct me please if i am ..
Start can use 10gbps from HE.net for their needs, so, it goes like this?:
User -> Start -> HE.net -> He.net (Their other links) -> to other provides out there, depends on the route.
I wonder if "Their other links" are overloaded somewhere or there is congestion, or i don't know what else could be.
Thats why i am waiting to see how things will be (and if they are going to improve) once NLayer is online.
Since i have start and that is couple of months now, every traceroute i did, everything went through he.net.
My thinking could be wrong, but, as said, please correct me if i am.
