In reply to a post by ukwoody:
Bob, why did we all have Enta showing then?
Different Bob, but the tracerts all showed as being between Coms in-house routers and Telehouse (or equivalent). Which is where the main web interfaces are for all of us.

That means they were/are simply renting backbone fibre. Nothing to do with the Enta ISP side of things that ADSL24 moved away from to Murphx at the time of the initial WBC/21CN Enta debacle.

It's if the first hop after your router is Enta that you may be on resold Enta ISP.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 58.7/14.6Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

first time I seen a uk isp not have direct peering to the bbc for a long time, seems unusual.

Noticed some packetloss tonight (around 10pm) which also resulted in a doubling of my pings.

I didn't notice while browsing the net (maybe because of OpenVPN) but I see increased latency 10:30 -11:30 on SmokePing.

[re: Benjanyan] [link to this post]
 
No i didnt notice while browsing, and not had BMQ running for abit as had no issues, but after my pings had increased i enabled it and noticed what shows in your graph

Is this something that happens every night or had it been a one off recently? Like i said not had the graphs running to check

Looking at the last 10 days graph, yes it seems regular. I haven't bothered contacting them as I'll hopefully be done with them by Friday, this kind of service is the norm and I'm sure they're aware of it.

Have youpnoticed packetloss while browsing/streaming during these times?

Seems odd if traffic management in and heavy users leaving

Re: Coms latency


[re: bobble_bob] [link to this post]
 
No, but I tunnel everything through OpenVPN. I wouldn't be surprised if that retransmitted any lost packets behind the scenes. This is how I've survived on Coms... I only really go by those graphs on SmokePing as I can't monitor my own connection with a BQM.

Since they started preferring Cogent, the graphs have suggested things have been even worse. I'm fairly convinced Coms aren't interested in providing a good quality service so I haven't bothered contacting them.
