Gateway issues all over again

I've just had to hop gateways again starting on ptw-bng01, then onto ptn-bng01 which gave me HTTPx1 speeds of less than half my normal download speeds, see below from Thinkbroadband taken on ptn-bng01.
Eventually got onto pcl-bng02 and all seems steady at over 45Mbps again.
Anyone else getting these issues again? More importantly has this issue ever been resolved or have I just been lucky for the last few months?

Re: Gateway issues all over again

I had an instance back in January and another poster had one a week or so ago. The problem seems a lot less prevalent than it was but hasn't been completely eradicated.

Re: Gateway issues all over again

I don't have a major problem, but  any "bng" gateway gives me a consistent 2Mbps (5.3%) less than any "ag" gateway - the former with 2Mbps spikes at shortish intervals and the latter with an infrequent 2Mbps negative spike (Samknows graphs). Other parameters have a similar relationship.

Re: Gateway issues all over again

I'm on ptw-bng02 and i've never noticed any problems, if anything they give a lower ping for me  Wink

Re: Gateway issues all over again

All gateway's have been giving me crap TBBx1 speeds. Currently on ptn-bng01. The bng's do give me better latency times (averaging around 11-12ms, which is good for being in the north).

If the move to the new network doesn't help, I am jumping ship.

You are currently connected to gateway ptw-bng02.

Re: Gateway issues all over again

I'm up in the NE and seem to be having no end if issues with the PTN and PTW gateways, PCL seems fine though.
It wouldn't be an issue but my gateway has been changing during the night more often than normal lately.

Try a gateway hop, see if you get a lower ping. That's a pretty big increase, you sure interleaving hasn't been applied?

Re: Gateway issues all over again

This is really becoming a joke tonight, I might as well be using ADSL for downloading, that and my upload is way below the FTTC A Low range!

Re: Gateway issues all over again

Seems i'm being hit tonight with gateway issues download in the ADSL range upload stays the same. on pcl-ag02

going to gateway hop see if it fixes it.

Edit..
Yep a quick Gateway hop to pcl-ag06 and everything is as it should be.. sigh the new network can't come soon enough hopefully that will stop all this gateway hopping nonsense that shouldn't be needed.

Re: Gateway issues all over again

Agree i shouldent have to Hop gateways to find a decent game connection, which only lasts for 2-3 days before a hop is required
