Not really sure what's normal but I usually get a pretty good latency on my connection (VDSL) - 7ms on speedtest, and 5-6ms if I  ping the first external ip or snap DNS server.  

I've noticed lately a that it's up quite a bit in the evenings. 44ms currently on speedtest (with throughput down a bit and it seems to take a lot longer to "ramp up")  

I game a bit and have noticed it there to. And below is what pinging the dns server looks like right now. Congestion or something else?  Is that much of an increase pretty normal?  It's been a pretty constant increase in the evenings for the last couple of weeks I think.

Hey,

First post here - When was this taken? Latency for me seems okay, I'm on Snap VDSL, running a vanilla fritzbox setup:

Pretty much when I posted it so 22:03ish. It's still the same right now. Based on the last few evenings if I wait an hour or so it'll go back down to a very steady 6-7ms (I tried this evening at 19:30 and it was fine - but it seems to last from around 20:30 - 23:30 I think)


EDIT: current pingtest:

Odd. I haven't noticed any issues with latency while playing CS:S or GW2. I'm currently using the Fritz's wireless to do all of this - Whenever I've had performance issues latency wise, it's always been related to the wireless proved by a traceroute.

Nope, no wireless here - straight to gigE switch plugged into LAN1 on the FritzBox.

School holidays?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Potentially an issue to do with Chorus backbaul from your cabinet to where Snap's handover is.

Reason i'm saying this this is it looks as if it may only be effecting you and latency is high from the first hop outside your network which would be Snap's BRAS terminating the PPPoE session. Which the bits between are usually only Chorus's backhaul network.

I'd email them or call Snap and get them to take a look.

Would like to see if other Snap users in your area can weigh in with similar results - You'll find faster action will be taken if it effects multiple users.

Scholarly: Would like to see if other Snap users in your area can weigh in with similar results - You'll find faster action will be taken if it effects multiple users.


How wide an area would we be looking at?  

Anyone reading this live near the corner of Balmoral and Dominion Roads in Auckland? :)

If it's occuring before snap handover would it affect non-snap users?

I'm not too far from there, and haven't had any issues.
Although I'm running off of an exchange, not a cabinet.

Maybe related, maybe not. I've had spells of horrible latency in World of Warcraft the last week or two. Usually happens between 8-11pm. Worst I've seen in over 3 years, etc. Actually DC's me often, and local pings are fine but 2k+ pings to eastern USA.

Mate on Telstra was experiencing exactly the same which seems significant.

My speedtests locally are great right now, but youtube performance is atrocious.

At night it will flatline the graph on the fritz till it is buffered. At the moment its lucky to get 4-5 megs sustained.



compared to night time



pings are stable at 5-7ms to my webhost at the skytower however.

Since the youtube is not in auckland when I last asked, perhaps its slowness within snaps network?

I'm connected to the cabinet near the white Balmoral sign on that corner (I think)   Wonder if I can find anyone else on it.

Still not looking to hot.. and pretty much clears up every night between 11-11:30pm when I go back down to 5-6ms
