Re: [CenturyTel] High pings and jitter - Phoenix

On 12/30, my connection went down for a few hours and when it came back up that evening, my pings have been double what they had been. For the last year, pings had been a consistent 40ms and now it's been 80ms ever since 12/30. Even when my speeds went belly up, I could at least depend on pings being consistent. Well actually, I guess they're "consistent" now... unfortunately, they're consistently 100% worse than they had ever been.

Speeds have been ultra flaky since 12/30 also. I'm sure Centurylink knows what's causing this but we'll never know. I figure it's a 50/50 chance that Centurylink's DSL service will get better at some point...but then it's also 50/50 that it'll get even worse.
