Re: Sick and tired of all this gateway hopping cr4p

Me too, and I don't have pings anywhere near as high as you. I hopped three times about an hour ago, and got fed up with the bizarre speed tests I am getting, where one (bearing in mind I'm on ADSL2+) gave me a spike of around 50Mb download (all of them spiked, actually) - just the weirdest fluctuations in the speed graph.

Re: Sick and tired of all this gateway hopping cr4p

I've just tried again and am on ptn-ag03, and that one is screwy too. When I got the 50Mb spike it was pcl-ag01. I got a 30Mb one on the same gateway on the second test. Also tried pcl-ag05 and ptw-ag03. Haven't done any gaming at all today. Watching a lot of youtube with loads of buffering, then some browsing with pages and images taking forever to load. I'm just about to likely get myself all wound up as I'm going to have a go at a bit of gaming in a few minutes.
EDIT:
Jamesanstee. I've posted in that thread a couple of times, but I resist posting more because I think Kelly has enough on his plate without more of us posting with every, single test result and hop.

Re: Sick and tired of all this gateway hopping cr4p

Would it be better to merge this thread with the other one rather than have to seperate ones ?

Re: Sick and tired of all this gateway hopping cr4p

Posted in the thread about latency but here's what I've been getting most of the night:

Gaming has been really laggy and Youtube has been buffering a lot.
Gateway:  ptw-ag02

@lowlatency
I've just taken a look at your line and it's erroring pretty frequently. To help with the packet loss, I would recommend having Interleaving switched on if it's affecting your line performance.
Let me know if you'd like that applying to your line.
