Anyone seeing a slowdown on Vivaciti enta connection?


[link to this post]
 
As title really down to about 2 mbps since 8am, called the support line and they are putting it down to windows updates. Anyone else? How is it over there in Xilo land?

Am I the only one left at Vivaciti? Anyway Enta have said the slowdown was due to a massive MS update being released. I did my updates last night and they werent particularly large in download size unless this is another win 10 release. although I have seen nothing. Apparently MS peers with Enta.

The company I work for are an Enta reseller and whenever we pass on complaints about speeds they say its Microsoft updates. A few weeks ago our own 70Mb FTTC was down to 4Mb on speed tests, but they still gave the same reason.

Always worth a peek at https://stats.linx.net/ to see if unusual spikes and then there are the ones from PlusNet too http://www.plus.net/support/service/network_performa...

Very rare to see any moans about Windows update size which are small compared to iOS and other updates usually. Plus suspect many homes go for a couple of days without turning on the PC, i.e. phone/tablet is enough for a lot of day to day activity now.

Thanks for those links have bookmarked.

I called Enta support and that was the explanation given. Followed up with a ticket to Vivaciti which said they saw a lot of unprecedented traffic this morning and Enta peers with MS.

I have never seen my connection go down to 1 meg before except on ADSL Max with Zen. Funny thing is as I was doing speedtests I saw my graph peak at max for a second then rapidly come down and settle at 1-2 meg as if it was being shaped not congested. But the guy at Enta said traffic was coming down and my speeds should return to normal with a few hours and they did.

Looking at those graphs there is no peak at 8am-12pm when I was pretty slow unless it was a DDOS on Enta, and nothing on the Enta NOC pages. Back to normal now but I would love to know where all the traffic was from, my Windows Updates were pretty small, even for Win 10.

I left Vivaciti a few months after the migration to Enta. The reason I moved to Vivaciti in the first place was because Enta seems to have some sort of network issue in my area and experiences constant dropouts, which I saw again when my connection was migrated back to Enta.

I moved to Xilo and haven't seen any major slowdowns or persistent problems

Thanks for that. I spoke to Matt from Xilo/Uno by email at 2am and all my queries were answered, so its just a case of wait for the MAC.
