So jealous of all these good speeds. I have 15 down, 1 up for $65 a month. Not happy about it, but don't really have many other options for my area.

I pay about the same for a third of that Al.. So yeah, I get your feels. Only good thing about mine is that it's unlimited, there is no caps, had one month were I had hit over 600gb dl (back in the day). On other isp's in my area that would have been 10$ per GB over 100gb. So, there is that I guess?

Yeah, I'd like to get into doing YouTube videos again and maybe some streaming, but the streaming is almost impossible with those speeds. I can do the videos, just need to start uploading them then go to bed. lol

I connected with the one in Canada to have a better idea what the connection to the server is ^^

Don't know why the upload on the OVH one stunk.

Also for "funsy" I captured some packets while running those test to see where they were going and what networks they traversed from my desk to their server. The path to Beauharnois goes through Newark, NJ; rough part of the world for any thing much less a lonely IP packet. :p

Yep.. My server's a bit on the slow side.. Still waiting on them to get that 10gig up and running.. This is with 3000 customers using it. 2x1gig.

In the interest of apples to apple, this is my speedtest from the house. I pay for 60/5. WOW lets it burst for the first couple of seconds hence the 81Mbps. It is usually rock solid on 60Mbps even with neighbors.

I've gone ahead and stickied this thread. I know some of you have been experiencing connection issues to us and finding that you cannot ping or traceroute our server, which is intentional. Restricting ICMP traffic helps prevent bots from easily finding us and attempting to brute force their way in with a privileged account or run DoS attacks against exposed ports.

Use the link provided in the first post of this thread to get a proper speed test to the datacenter in which our server is located.

So far everyone that's notified us of an issues seems to be coming from AUS. I'm trying to find information about the Oceanic route to see if there are current known issues, but I'm finding the telecom companies there are not very transparent about these things.

I used a couple AUS-based pages to traceroute to "bhs.proof.ovh.net" and you can definitely see both high latency and some packet loss along the way:

This is opposed to what I see when I do the same thing from my house:

12 74 ms 75 ms 74 ms bhs.proof.ovh.net [192.99.19.165]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Aside from a spike in latency when I hit be50-5.bhs-3a-a9.qc.ca, which is probably a QoS setting to prevent ICMP requests from getting priority over other traffic, my latency is much better than seen above.

I will keep looking for something being reported from the AUS side of things or maybe somewhere else along the first route I pasted. Traditionally when these things happen, they'll last 2-3 weeks while some repair is being made that you and I aren't made aware of, like a faulty line buried in the ocean that can take time to schedule and get a team to fix. Hopefully patience will pay off for us once again.

Sorry some of you are having such issues. I'll do what I can to get answers.
