[Cable] Slow speeds on rCable

Hello all,

There appears to be some signs of slow speeds on rCable. We have plenty of capacity yet despite this, there are reports of slow speeds. There appears to be a problem before the hand off to us however we are also investigating all possibilities.

I'm starting this thread in order to try to get some consensus on exactly what and who are being affected so we can try to figure out how to fix it.

Can every who is seeing slow speeds post their cable modem stats as well as a speed test done during the evening after 9pm and before midnight. We also need a traceroute to, say 206.248.155.22 (the purpose is to help identify what POI you are on)

Silly side question...are you able to see the data coming in at York Mills on a head-end basis? Or does it lack that identifying information? Just thinking that is that were visible, you could look for any obvious capping in the inbound data...a flat line would be a sure sign that Rogers is throttling things somewhere upstream.

Ideally though if you can provide an MTR (or winmtr for windows) outside peak and during peak that would be even better.

I realize that some customers have already provided this. We just need more sample to pin-point the problem.

I have a thread in the direct forum which contains 3+ pages of data from which you can use if you like. I've been in the Direct forum so much I'm actually considered a "Regular" according to the forum.

»[Cable] Connection Issues.

Here is some information from my thread. It is data collected after 9PM. I am in London. The upgrade from my previous service of 28/1 happened on July 28th, 2013 and I have been experiencing issues since that date.

I did not get any modem stats at the time (last night) when experiencing this but when I do I will rerun everything and post up results. Though in my case I do think I have something a bit unusual for my modem stats:

I have been put on an 8x3 profile about 2-3 weeks prior to the upgrade in London and this has not changed even after my upgrade to 35/3.

Both you and a couple others are showing what appear to be serious issues in the tracert...but you shouldn't be using a Chicago speedof.me server to show your speeds. Speedof.me doesn't work properly even with local servers.

To show what I mean, my speedof.me result shows I'm running slow (13 mbps), when in fact my real speeds are exactly what they should be.

Looks like you got some congestion too.

Speedtest does not show real speed. Speedof.me does.

Since I run a lot of speed tests I have results dating from May 2013:

Speedof.me log:




Speedtest log:



From this we can clearly see the speed problems started on July 29th. I have a time gap for June and most of July because when the download speed is over 30Mbit I just cancel the test midway cuz it's good nuf for me. So the period where I don't have results I have great speed.

Wrong. I'm getting 45 mbps on torrents right now. Speedof.me is wrong, and being slow on its servers shows nothing about anyone's connection.

Torrents are HEAVILY multithreaded that shows nothing.

Try to test with this site:
»testmy.net/download

Or download a big file here with internet explorer and you can see your download speed as you download it:
»www.thinkbroadband.com/download.html

Most speed tests are pretty worthless for real world usage.

That one shows slowness. Not sure if it's legit though. Speedof.me I know to be screwy, it registered my work connection (multiple 100/100 connections) as being about 12 mbps today.

That aside, if single-threaded downloads are slow but multi-threaded ones are not, what might that say about the nature of the problem? I'm not entirely sure.

I just added another site, try there too

"Or download a big file here with internet explorer and you can see your download speed as you download it:
»www.thinkbroadband.com/download.html
"

Speedof.me registered my work connection to be 48Mbit down / 23Mbit up which looks about right to me. It's NOT screwy at all.

"That aside, if single-threaded downloads are slow but multi-threaded ones are not, what might that say about the nature of the problem? "
That means there is congestion!
Youtube/twitch/loading pictures etc are NOT multithreaded.

The links you provided showed me at about 4 mbps, but a similar download off cnet just rolled at about 35. This still leads me to believe these sites just don't have the capacity, but I'll test them from a different connection tomorrow and report back. Shouldn't discount the theory that the speedtests are masking a problem.

I still wonder why congestion would affect things on a per-thread rather than a per-connection basis, but I don't understand the architecture well enough.

I hope your work connection is not using rogers or any of its resalers.

My work uses verizon business so I'm good there.

VZB == UUnet. UUnet was one of the first IP transit providers in Canada.

Of course multi-threaded tests are optomistic, no argument there, but speedof.me is definitely screwy some of the time (or a lot of the time).

As said up thread, speedtests aren't that useful, and certainly no single speedtest is a panacea. Calculate from real world downloads from Microsoft or something, monitor real time bandwidth in a Tomato router.. Those are much better measures.

Personally I've had great results with speedof.me for 2+ months consecutively. Well I guess your mileage may vary.
