who do I blame for this one!
The deity of your choice? It is the ongoing trouble that unless you have monitoring of the whole network it is very difficult to state exactly where the bottleneck is - people blame their ISP but it could as easily be Apple or it might even be that there is an interconnect down somewhere.
Yet the other day I downloaded Beta 4 in a couple of mins... who do I blame for this one!
'Twas ever thus - downloading the same size file from different places at different times can take vastly different lengths of time. Unlikely to be an ISP issue.
Well, to put it in perspective, currently I'm downloading an update from a usually very fast servers... my latency on my BQM's has jumped very high though the connection is barely transferring data, yet sped tests are performing fine... even over seas....
Oh and one of my BQM's has started to show some packet loss (which has become a usual thing but not until around 4PM - 9PM) so if its not Plusnet... I'm going to point the finger at BT Wholesale... reason for this pointing is that packet loss issues as I found out yesterday also affect my neighbour BT connection!
and before anyone points the finger at the NGA or Exchange... it don't happen on TBB's BQM only on one at Rapidswitch maidenhead which ping my connection, my neighbours and another 3 connections elsewhere...
I'm not trying to have a pop at Plusnet here... but very annoyed at the ongoing issues and sick of the lack of support that so many ARE NOT getting!
