What is Sky's ADSL2 LLU bufferbloat like?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Visited my parents recently (who are with TalkTalk) and discovered their internet is suffering from truly horrendous bufferbloat, ie. excessive latency under load. I ran a (few) tests using dslreports speedtest which reports latency under load, this revealed average download latency under load of 1.3 seconds!

Does anyone know what Sky's ADSL LLU bufferbloat, especially on low capacity lines (2Mbit) is like?

Thanks,

Kevin

If you use a OpenWrt/LEDE router, you can use SQM to reduce upload bufferbloat, download bufferbloat can also be managed indirectly to some extent for tcp connections. Assuming the ISP network isn't congested, you would be less affected by ISP bufferbloat if you can manage the traffic on your end.
