Re: New U-Verse HSI install jitter issues

you say you're on the 6/1 plan but from the graph, that doesn't look like it.

try getting your modem swapped for a 3600HG-V. check this post for more info: »Re: Slow internet U-verse 12mbit

Well, I definitely am as you can see and that ping is the best I've had so far...weird.

What exactly do I tell them to get the 3600? Is it that much more reliable? Would they charge?

They actually waived all the installation fees for me when they forced me to upgrade because it was such a confusing situation.

The OP is really on the 6/1 speed profile. The UV Realtime tool is reporting the service profile and the capacity of the OP's line not their actual HSI service offering.

For the OP, U-verse VDSL is only provisioned as interleaved which adds to your line's latency vs what you had with your previous DSL.

Switching to a 3600 modem will have no impact.

The 3600 is actually more failure prone than the 3800/3801. Wierd, I don't know how people are having such high pings on U-verse. On my VDSL2 line with a triple play bundle I had 25ms latency to NY from CT.

I don't have U-verse internet anymore but this is what I had:

For reference here are my stats/bitloading

We are about 250 feet from the VRAD if I follow the road where the line comes.

How would I go about getting their ADSL2+ service then? I'm considering switching to Brighthouse but I don't wanna go through the hassle if there's still something I can do.

I just don't understand how this "upgrade" as they call it, is actually worse than old 90's DSL tech which worked flawlessly. I don't even want their TV or any other service for that matter, why push this crap upon me?

They also did it in a very unprofessional manner, turning my old DSL service off with no e-mail, letter, phone call...nothing, then try to charge me for 2 accounts which took weeks to sort out.

Once you go VDSL you cannot go back . I still don't know why your pings are so high.

Me neither. I tried changing settings according to a few recommendations and it never helped.

This is not abnormal for Uverse at all. Actually very typical.

Look at my pings above. I'm on VDSL2 with only 25ms from CT to NY. Maybe I was just lucky O_o?

my experience with my 3600HG-V and my friend's 3800HG-V and 3801HG-V is different. He always has issues whereas I don't. We live pretty close to each other as well.

My guess is that the OP's issues are due to the gateway. I could be wrong but my experience suggests otherwise.

Guess I was "lucky" too.




...or it could be the fact that the technology is in fact capable of lower pings. People just complain about the interleaving because it hurts their e-penis.

(Though U-verse doesn't always have the best routing, which can contribute to higher latency as well, so I guess I am "lucky" in that aspect.)

Yea...you are lucky. Have a look at this without doing this

It could be bad routing from your area. This is what I got. Have you done a trace route?

40 to 50 ms is very typical of uverse. I've put in hundreds and I've actually never seen a sub 30 ms ping. So take from that what u will.

They use different fiber cards in some areas so that would probably explain some of the discrepancy.

Yes, it's hit or miss with those. Sometimes they're decent, sometimes they're really craphouse. There's even been a couple times where it would time out on the RG.
