Is anyone else using IPv6 able to try out gfycat.com and see if it's incredibly slow for them as well?  I'm only able to get transfer speeds of at most 200KB/s while using IPv6 but over IPv4 I'm getting very fast speeds (like 7MB/s +).  I'm fairly certain it's not my setup as other IPv6 sites such as YouTube are working just fine - I can stream an 8k video and it's reaching transfer speeds exceeding 10MB/s.  Before I get too serious about troubleshooting it I just wanted to see if it's just me or the same for others as well.

Oh damn, it was the ipv6? Yeah, I've found it to be super slow for a while too. And turning off ipv6 fixes it.

 

 

 

I think that's the same thing with 4chan, from which I've found image loading to be very slow from.

 

 

 

@2degreescare hello! Can you check this out? Also please look at 4chan.org and i.4cdn.org

Hi guys,

 

We aren't aware of any issues at this time.

 

Can you please message us with traceroutes to these services, both on ipv6 and ipv4, while affected, and we'll check it out. If you could include your broadband customer number, physical address and connection type as well, that'd be appreciated

 

Thanks

 

Ralph ^JOB

I just tried that website, Gfycat is very slow for me too. Speed was around 2.5 Megabit download.
