Wow. The difference is huge to my BQM.
My modem levels are good so I don't know if there might be another cause to this or maybe you are in a less congested node.


Are you sure your connection is being used to torrenting somewhere or other?

The reason I ask, is my graph looks like this pretty much all the time (and this one is a Sunday to boot).

However when torrenting it looks like this (9AM-4PM?)

My Broadband Ping

VMB 550/35 on the Hitron CGNv4 modem in Bridge Mode

I have had repeated random outages, especially from March - September 2020 (until an engineer came around and said to call him if it happens again) whatever he did stopped it dropping.

The upload was crippled to 3Mbps between March-June 2020. It is again down to around 10Mbps this lockdown.

I also suspect the Puma6 bug might not be fixed, I do have totally random issues like 1) websites not loading or taking too long to load (could be PEBCAK but I can't diagnose) 2) Stadia jitter resulting in a less than smooth experience, even when plugged directly into the Hitron hub/modem.

No torrenting. Just my work laptop and sometimes my wife on Netflix.

Today was so bad that I had to use my personal hotspot connection.

New VM user here - had M200 fibre just over a month. Speed is good, however we suffer from periods of dropout - this shows on the BQM graph:

We had a big spike in latency and doppped packets after 9pm last night and a couple earlier in the day......

Hello... OP here, thanks for all the BQMs shared and the discussion.

I finally did my upgrade from SH2AC to Hub3 (both in modem mode) and M200 to M350. It went perfectly and my BQM looks exactly the same as before. I can't say for certain all traces of the Puma 6 issues have been mitigated, but as I may have mentioned in my first post, five years ago with Hub3 on M200 (or whatever it was at the time) my BQM was always full of yellow spikey latency, and that certainly is not happening now.

(the red is when I did the switch)

Interesting but not surprising: single stream download speed did not improve too much. With old set up it would be close to 200Mbps on a good run but could be in the low 100s also. On the 350 service single stream is more consistently around 200Mbps and multi-stream hits 370Mbps. I'm pleased my upload also improved from about 21Mbps to about 32Mbps. (I have a little traffic shaping running on my opnsense router)

My Puma6 test at dslreports.com does show a few latency outliers, but my connection isn't totally quiet so I'm not too concerned with it.
