But on the assumption that 1400 is now the limit for DF packets within Three's core, PMTU Discovery surely will cap at 1400, no?
It should yes, but if that is temporary and becomes 1470, then why limit your modem? Let the system work it out.

In the 1990s and early 2000s we used to set the MTU on our PCs and laptops to 1400 because the PMTU didn't exist in Win98 and similar. There was always strong advice to never change the router, but to set the MTU on the PC/laptop.

Why are you making that assumption?

Fair point. I note that the Huawei equipment supplied by Three is pre-set to 1440.

I do get the point you're making, but I have tested ICMP DF with several well-connected endpoints.

ikr! How many months has it been since the first reports of the problem? Six at least.

As I said, mine is set to 1500 by Three, who have full updating access so they would change it if they thought that was needed.

Re: Three is finally working properly OMFG. [or is it...]


[re: jchamier] [link to this post]
 
just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience?

I had months of three not working very well - slow page loads and timeouts even though the upload and download speeds were great.

Last week I saw a massive improvement as many people on here reported.

One week on I've noticed that although page loads are still fine, streaming appears to time out after 20-30 minutes. I've experienced this on sonos (using amazon music, tune in and Spotify) and have also had the same happen on a laptop using streamed radio.

The connection is fine but streaming seems to get interrupted by the network.

No problems here with:
- YouTube.com on Chrome/Windows 10
- YouTube app on gen 1 FireTV
- Radioplayer app on Android 10 phone
- BBC Sounds app on Android 10 phone (radio live or replay)
- Google Play Music on Windows
- Amazon Prime Music on Windows
- Facebook video on Chrome/Windows 10 and in Android 10 app

Despite other forumites' advice that it's pointless, you could try changing the router's MTU to 1400—as a diagnostic step, if nothing else.

Looks like Three got the hint of whats wrong from your post smile
IN any case, three subscribers are happy if the network remains like this!
