This is something that has intrigued me.. how can it be possible that a standard broadband connection provides a superior experience than a fiber connection? I'd like to try and get to the bottom of the reason if possible?
I was experiencing the classic lagging, connection dropping when online with mates with ISP A. Decided to change to a new provider - ISP B. To enable the transfer I had to go back to standard broadband for a brief period when they reactivated/setup the line.
During this period, I had a connection of around 4Mb, and crazily when I tried a game, I was expecting it to be unplayable, but to my surprise it was faultless.. so much better than I had experienced when on fiber from ISP A.
The setup completed and I installed the new router and fiber from ISP B is now active. Online gaming returned to how it used to be with original fiber.
I have gone through everything in the house, wired direct to modem.router, tried various consoles even. I've given up trying. I believe it most likely to be something configured on the line, but I don't know how to read the stats.
Has anyone experienced this or have any ideas on what could cause this? I'll post my current stats below - would really appreciate any analysis of them or any areas that could cause problem and whether there is anything I can do to resolve?
Stats to follow.
