do you quote your referance number at all when you send them in?

backstory often helps encase it gets pushed up the chain..

they should, but it always helps to give clear indication that your sending traces for a certain issue. otherwise you could be starting a new issue all together for them to look at.

Absolutely.  Either a ticket ref # from the call, or better yet that AND put in some text about the issue (describe it again) in the email.  Help your ISP to help you :)

I don't even kno how to explain the issue to the CSR, basically do i just say that my "everything" is terrible and has been terrible for weeks? It's not just twitch, its almost like congestion... But there shouldn't be congestion on fiber right..?

you may struggle to get a tech that understands exactly what twitch is.. just explain as you have here, and go through all the tests with them..


on the off thought, are you streaming over wifi?

Can someone do a speedtest to LA America, just so i can get a comparison?

Preferably on 100/50, or even vdsl
