Re: Sloooooooooooooooooooooooow in kitchener...AGAIN

Yeah...there was some slowdown at about 4:30pm till what, 5:30-6:00pm? Everything seems speedy and back to normal now. All this while in the mist of a price hike. Quebec pricing seems to be so inflated. I can't help but feel robbed.

Yeah, normal, huh?

Teksavvy, you need to come out and say wtf is going on. This is been happening on and off for weeks/months now.

Ping times, up and down, speeds, up and down.

Only going to get worse within the next hour or so:

I notice similar issues in KW. We have both Rogers and TSI. Both suffer in the evening with TSI suffering the most esp for streaming.

Since I do not have TV, watching a programme on like ctv, citytv, cbc, global have some buffering issues. I have had short choppy sound from a few radio streams but they usually even out.

I've noticed the same trend. Steam downloads cap at about 300-400kB/s in the evening but full speed in the afternoon. This is on 28/1 cable service.

I'm experiencing the exact same issue... evenings are terrible and streaming tonight seems like a pipe dream.

What good is 28/1 if you can only get sufficient speeds while you're not at home to enjoy it?

Milton:




Looking at the bandwidth graphs on the router, it looks like this started around 9:30. Unscheduled maintenance?

Really slow in Waterloo tonight. This is after a an outage from last night.

DNS resolution seems really slow, but switching my DNS to 8.8.8.8 (Google) seems to be a work-around. Although I don't like using Google for DNS.

Teksavvy, get it together! I might as well switch back to the big guys.

it's completely ****** in London as well. I'd post a speedtest but it's been 3 minutes of connecting to display the download speed.

Hmm switching DNS to opendns.com seems to help. All pages load fast now.
