Sky broadband is slow and pings are high.


[link to this post]
 
Hi, I recently switched from aol/talktalk to sky broadband and so far my experience has been awful. Ping's are very high and speeds are all over the place.

I never had any issues with talktalk.

C:\Windows\system32>tracert bbc.co.uk

Tracing route to bbc.co.uk [212.58.241.131]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms SkyRouter.Home [192.168.0.1]
2 41 ms 40 ms 39 ms xxxxxxxx.bb.sky.com [xx.xx.xxx.xxx]
3 155 ms 159 ms 163 ms 10.245.184.145
4 157 ms 156 ms 157 ms ip-84-38-37-126.easynet.co.uk [84.38.37.126]
5 159 ms 151 ms 154 ms 212.58.238.189
6 * * * Request timed out.
7 158 ms 157 ms 158 ms ae1.er01.rbsov.bbc.co.uk [132.185.254.46]
8 160 ms 157 ms 157 ms 132.185.255.134
9 284 ms 281 ms 288 ms virtual-vip-231.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.241.131]


Trace complete.

C:\Windows\system32>

As you can see the third hop is causing the problem, so not a problem with my network and I am using ethernet. This usually happens between 6pm and 12am.

What is happening? and how can I get this fixed?

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 3542 kbps 798 kbps
Line Attenuation 58.5 dB 35.0 dB
Noise Margin 7.5 dB 10.4 dB

This never happened whilst I was on talktalk, it was always a constant 50ms. on line gaming is practically impossible now.

I am using the test socket, although I have no telephone extensions anyway.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Yes, they just keep telling me that its my internal wiring but its not as when I was on talktalk last week it worked fine with 50ms pings.

Is there any sky reps on here?

Everyday lite (for now, until fibre gets here in April). But as long as I am not using connect then that should not matter right?

Great - I was hoping you'd say that, your stats sounded like Connect !

Ok so I am not on connect, what else could be causing the pings to go high?

Is it just the BBC that has high pings or do other sites?

Congestion on the backhaul link from the exchange, core network is massive, but of late one or two exchanges have shown capacity issues, which usually clear up.

Or a handful with fast lines get bored of downloading the complete internet
