Just curious


[link to this post]
 
I see that early this afternoon, there was a large red spike and a smaller one on my BQM - only ever seen small very occasional dots for dropped packets, and a thinner version of this before for a brief disconnect - and as my connection seemingly hasn't disconnected today, wonder what would cause that?

Thought I'd ask while it's still visible.

My brain is a bit fogged at the moment Trisha. Are you with Zen as per your Profile, or Plusnet now?

I have the identical picture. If you get two tabs with yours and mine up, and switch between them, it feels wierd.

In reply to a post by RobertoS:

Probably a daft question, and you may have explained this before (same fog I guess) ...but why are all your 'spiky bits' smoother than mine? Shorter line, difference between adsl/fibre?

I'm probably doing far less than you, for starters. Mainly just this site or orther browsing and small emails. Under 10GB per month in total.

Or of course, maybe just a better ISP tongue. What does yours do if you go idle for 10 minutes?

Or your hair gel is better quality than mine.

I don't think line length is anything at all to do with it.
