You've got to wait on hold for 20 mins first then wait for the promised call back Smile

Still rocking 66Mbit with the odd occasional jump to 70Mbit but generally not. So glad I'm not paying full price for this.

Been too ill to chase this up further.

My god, it was just averaging 70Mbit and even hit 73.9Mbit for a short while there. I'm sure it wont last.

Customer support lines don't tend to be busy when they have no customers to support...

Welcome to Origin Yoyo:

I don't remember the speed fluctuating this much on Digital Region.

It also appears IDAQ do not have peering with other Sheffield data centers, hence why Nottingham is faster than Sheffield on speedtest.net! Mental!

RE: My Origin connection so far
While trying to figure out why my connection is still reluctant to go above 66Mbit and in fact is chugging along at only 42Mbit right now on Usenet for some reason. I noticed that Origin seem to have switched to ixreach now for their connectivity.

To get to my Usenet provider I get:
Quote:traceroute to ssl-eu.astraweb.com (91.208.207.155), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
1 Router (192.168.1.254) 0.136 ms * *

5 r2.thn.lon.ixreach.com (91.196.184.182) 13.155 ms 13.156 ms 16.140 ms
6 r1.tc2.ams.ixreach.com (91.196.184.138) 18.070 ms 17.933 ms 17.928 ms
7 searchtech.telecity3f.nl-ix.net (193.239.116.12) 20.615 ms 20.382 ms 18.384 ms
8 91.208.207.155 (91.208.207.155) 18.408 ms 18.409 ms 19.026 ms

That seems extremely good, especially as its going all the way to the Netherlands.

My VPS:

6 ixr.gw1.uk1.bhost.net (46.18.173.110) 12.808 ms 12.690 ms 12.058 ms
7 vps10.uk1.bhost.net (176.126.240.20) 12.056 ms 12.277 ms 11.965 ms

Interestingly I did some iperf tests on my VPS again which still confuse me.

With a single connection I get between 64Mbit and 69Mbit, dual or triple connections more consistently hit 69Mbit, but quad suddenly gets me 73.8Mbit.

Why it consistently takes four connections to max out my line I cannot figure out.

Results with Usenet are far more inconsistent, but then that is harder to judge as the software is dealing with missing posts which naturally stall the download. But it used to be so consistent on Digital Region, it just bugs me not knowing why.

RE: My Origin connection so far
Lovely, Origin just been down for nearly 2 hours. No response from their core router onwards and phone just rings then goes to "nobody is available" message, so I wonder if their internal VoIP is down too? I can't imagine there being enough people up at this hour to run out of lines.

This is exactly how it went LAST time too, I guess they didn't learn their lesson the last time this happened by having the VoIP on a redundant network. Then again, if airlines are stupid/tight to run an independent network for their public WiFi, it makes me think this sort of thing is endemic with businesses.

The strange thing is, it happened just after midnight last time too. Makes you wonder what/who triggered this.
