Re: [Cable] Youtube lags at night still, upgrade cache servers?

I'm getting ridiculously slow speeds tonight. I thought it was just CTV's site being bogged down tonight (because of the Fiberal event) but it's so bad that I can barely keep a connection even on MSN.

I'm on DSL of course.

Yeah, I'm dead in the water and have been all night.

The thing about this congestion though, is how abruptly it "cuts in" and "cuts out".

It really is so similar to when throttling was in place. It cut in over a 15 minute window or so, slowing speeds and pings down from the normal high to the low for the evening. Then, around midnight, over a 15 minute window, speeds were increased back to normal.

I have a ping running 24x7, and it's so easy to see.

It just doesn't seem like natural congestion ebb and flow to me.

Hm... turns out it was something on my end.

Probably doesn't help that the wiring in this building is no doubt as old as the building itself.
