Behodar: My connection went live today. All I've done so far is log into WoW; 154 ms to a west coast server (Bronzebeard). That's about the same as with Fyx. However an east coast server is another story; 210 ms to Stormrage, instead of 230 with Fyx.

Hulu works too :)

PS. This is an ADSL2+ connection in Whakatane. From what I've heard, the latency should get even better when fibre goes in :)


Thanks for the feedback @Behodar. Appreciate it!

EDIT: This whole post may be completely wrong; I've found an issue that appears to be with my own network. As the problems began when I switched ISP I assumed that it was a Mynxnet issue, but now I suspect that I've misconfigured something during the changeover embarassed


Original post follows:

Well, things started off OK, but unfortunately it's not going so well now.

First I noticed random lag spikes in WoW; most of the time it would sit around 207-210 to my usual server (Stormrage), however I found that it would sometimes freeze up for half a second, which is of course no good in combat. I filed a ticket on Wednesday evening but have not yet had a response.

Since then I've found that it doesn't appear to be limited to WoW; I've had general browsing appear to freeze for several seconds at a time. At first this was happening while I was downloading stuff (I have a bit of a backlog now that I have unlimited data) so I didn't pay much attention, but I've subsequently seen it happen while I'm doing nothing else whatsoever.

About 25 minutes ago I found that several sites including Geekzone, YouTube, Westpac and even Mynxnet's own site were inaccessible, although Google and Macrumors continued to work. This issue persisted for about 12 minutes.

I hope that Mynxnet can do something about these issues; this weekend will be interesting as I have my scheduled WoW raids and I'm used to having a stable ping (on Fyx it was exceedingly rare for it to fluctuate by more than 2 ms). Hopefully I'll get a response to my ticket and find that they're investigating, but unfortunately this week's first impressions haven't been too good.

Just thought I should share as I don't know whether these problems are specific to me, or whether others are having issues and haven't posted. I'd be interested to hear from anyone else that's joined up.

@Behodar Seems I sent my response to the wrong email address. Apologies for that. Have forwarded it to you. It has instructions on what traceroute to run so we can see at what step the extra lag has been introduced. We have not been seeing the same issues with other customers so would really like to nail down where it is coming from.

that's really unfortunate.

your first opportunity to show the level of service you provide in the public arena and you mucked it up.

How on earth did you manage to reply to the wrong email address?

On the plus side, subsequent emails have been replied to quickly :)

Oh good grief. Take a chill pill. People make mistakes. He was man enough to admit it and he and the transit provider are on the issue. Not sure what value you got from the comment.

That's good, and as it should be.

I still don't see how it's possible to reply to the wrong email address. Hit 'reply' and the field is automatically populated, surely?

The person that made the contact form set the From address to Mynxnet's support address instead of the customer's address. I'm guessing that it's probably been fixed by now!

This is a thread where he is specifically asking for feedback about his ISP. If you want honest feedback, then you have to accept the good with the bad.

My feedback is that replying to the wrong email address is pretty poor customer service.

Sure, he admitted it, and has put it right, and even if it is an honest mistake, it still is a bad look for the systems/processes he operates where it is even possible to reply to the wrong email address without realising it.



It's only with this sort of feedback that problems can be fixed.

Well if they set the from address to whatever the customer puts, then you will have to worry about whitelisting the server running the form from your spam filters on all the systems it is going thru.

New systems in a startup. Reply-to field came through not set correctly. Very unfortunate yes. But the important part is to move forward and deliver for the customer!

Ah. Maybe I'm making things hard for the server admins at work when I do that :P

Yes, the from should be something at the domain that the server is authorised to send from, usually a no-reply@yourdomain or something, then set a reply-to for the customers email address.
