Anyone notice the speeds from Europe are just horrible at night? i decided to do a speedtest at around noon and a speedtest now at 9pm.
The below link is at i3d, a dutch gaming host company. and before you whine that I should be downloading from a closer source, that's not the point... »mirror.i3d.net/pub/debia ··· -hybrid/
At around noon it almost maxes my 28mbit. Right now the test is going at 35KB/sec which is just sad. I'm in an apartment building and my neighbor who has rogers cable get's almost 3mb/sec doing this same test.
Will this ever be fixed? the speeds have gradually got worse and worse...
Yeah, there are no excuses for having crappy transit, funny there are no comments from Teksavvy or Teksavvy fanboys...lol
If this was on rogers you'd see a fury of people dissing rogers like there is no tomorrow on the rogers forum. Goes to show Teksavvy still has a good reputation as an ISP but it can only get bad if issues like this continue.
I will be making an exit shortly also. I only use 50gigs a month at most and I pay for unlimited based on principal for a few years now. It's just a waste of money now and pretty frustrating and silly to use my neighbors wifi (who uses a competitor) to actually download something faster.
I had an open ticket from February until the migration in April on the McNicoll POI for horribly sucky congestion from approximately 9:30 p.m. until 11 p.m. EST (sometimes started much earlier though).
After migration to aggregated, I'm not noticing much of anything that's bugging me.
The original problem has to be POI congestion. raphaeld was on McNicoll too.
It will be interesting to see what happens after every POI migrates. I certainly hope congestion does not return.
well regardless, it seems to be quite a bit faster than previously mentioned (1-3Mbit/sec)?
I'm getting 2.3 MB/s right now with a single connection to a single file. And the OP was on the same POI that I was on, so chances are the situation has improved for the OP since the migration.
But I wouldn't expect to experience congestion at this time of night, locally, anyway.
Nexicom at 12:41 a.m. (on 45/4):
Local Toronto Speedtest results are usually poorest between 9:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. for me. I often get better results from St. Catharines and Oakville speedtest servers during those times.
