Are there any network issues affecting Orcon at the moment? Notably to the US West Coast?

Remote desktop and SSH connections to my US office in LA (Verizon FiOS) have been shocking for the past couple of days.

Speedtests are fine to other NZ servers from the LA Office, e.g. to Telecom:



However to Orcon:



I have previously tested the connection to Orcon, and it had always been comparable to the above result from Telecom.

Latency looks OK, but there is packet loss:

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 



 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 



 

- you have reset your modem and router

 


 

- your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing

 

- you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap

 


 

- your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing

 


 

- you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

 



 

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 



 

- Your ISP and plan

 


 

- Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL)

 


 

- Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin)

 


 

- Your general location (or street)

 


 

- If you are rural or urban

 


 

- If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin

 


 

- If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service

 


 

- If you have done an isolation test as per the link above

 



 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 



 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 



 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

 



 

- Is your premises phone wiring impacting your broadband performance? (very technical)

 


 

- Are you receiving a substandard ULL ADSL2+ connection from your ISP?

Nothing up with the Orcon network. Looks like an issue between Cogent and Verizon.

We have some verizon capacity, so I will route that subnet out the Verizon circuit to see if we can get you some better results.

Here's the speedtest to orcon (latency has gone up 20ms or so, but could be the time of day, no change downloading from orcon, uptream has gotten worse):

I only moved 108.0.0/16 over to the Verizon circuit. Its only a small subset..

That IP you gave before (108.0.187.1) was showing 20% PL before, but after the move showed 0%.

Will work to move some more verizon subnets over.

3 less hops, and no packet loss, excellent! I wonder where the huge loss in bandwidth is coming from. At least my remote desktop is feeling more responsive.
