Anyone experiencing serious lag/latency issues right now?
Not here and I am in London, I am on Carrytel FTTN 50/10. Try rebooting both your router and modem.

Strange. For a good half hour or so I was getting over 1500ms pings in battlenet but seems to be back to normal now. Speedtest and browsing was fine though at the time

Can someone share if Carrytel throttles speeds at night 6pm to 12am? Pls post any testing? If you get lower speeds, is it everyday for months, or just once in a week, or never? How it depends on the area where you live?

I joined them since November and my speed is always 46/10, I am with their FTTN 50/10 and I use usenet to test my speed (actual download speed). I am from London.

FTTN speed is always contant. Cable speed may fluctuate with more users in the same area, even with Rogers.

Can you explain why such differences? I'm interested in technical details.

Basically, FTTN is on a dedicated line connecting your modem ti your ISP, so your speed will not be affected by others.

Cable is shared by many users before it reaches your ISP.

There is one thing to tell the difference. You can always use your cable modem on your neighbour's cable network and it will work even if your neighbour does not have cable internet, but you cannot do this with FTTN.

Below is something I posted on the Carrytel's cable thread, should interest you.

Just to refresh memory:

For those who are interested in choosing cable or DSL, following is from a DSLR veteran, you can check full thread from the link :

"On DSL you have 1 or 2 gigabits to the remote DSLAM, with maximum subscribed speed per customer of 50mbit/s (very rarely 100mbit/s). On Cable you have 24 channel nodes with multiple 250mbit/s customers, and probably a couple of gigabit customers too. 24 channels is only good for 960mbit/s total. Yes, some nodes have 32 channels, but that's still only 1280mbit/s, and those nodes probably have even more gigabit customers on them.

On cable, many customers controlling 25% of capacity, and a few controlling 100%. On DSL, many customers controlling 5%, and none controlling more than 10% ever. Assume that both the cable and the DSL node we are thinking about are running at 50% occupancy on average. The odds of the Cable node being fully saturated for any given 5ms time slice are going to be way, way higher than the odds of saturation on the DSL node (or remote, whatever).

I've done extensive testing on one isolated case where it is almost certainly happening. I suspect it is more widespread than that. So, I believe that Rogers choosing to offer gigabit at all, and 250mbit/s speeds to the majority of their customers, is causing ping jitter that a competitive gamer would find unacceptable.

Of course QoS of some sort on the network could fix this problem. I don't know anything about the state of the art in that respect, or what's actually implemented on the ground by Rogers. I don't think there's anything though, at the moment."

Call or email Carrytel. I am on FTTN 50/10 in London and I have not experience any drop off yet.
