    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 2

    I think it's the OpenServe price cuts the other ISPs have been doing - hedging on having IPC price cuts later this year.

    That looks about right - like I said previously, +- 20ms from our current EU pings.

    From the tests I've seen, the latency is pretty comparable to what we have to EU at the moment, at least for most games (+- 20ms), so I'm not 100% sure what the advantage would be. I'm ready to be proven wrong though :D

    That's not a really good way to test it - rather do an iperf test.

    Even < 1% packet loss can see your international speeds plummet, while your local speeds are fine.

    Just from googling cape town vpn service : https://ghostpath.com/servers/country/South%20Africa https://www.frostvpn.com/clients/servers.htm https://www.slickvpn.com/locations/ Honestly though, it might just be easier to set one up yourself - it's not that hard. Just google for some tutorials...

    Aren't there already other VPN providers with servers in ZA that you can use for this purpose?

    I'm just repeating what I've read - it may very well prove to be wrong, since it's mostly speculation. I think we'll have a much better idea in a year or so when they have parts of America covered for the first phase and have some real world results to show for it.

    These satellites are in low-earth orbit, so it's not nearly as bad - normally you'd see > 500ms latency because of the big roundtrip, but they've apparently managed to reduce that to around 20ms because of the decreased distance. Some people were doing some calculations and they were saying...

    Seeing some weirdness with my upload speed - that's the highest result I've been able to get locally, earlier it was around 80mbps. Download speed is fine. Also unable to connect to PSN and strangely enough, Netflix on my samsung tv isn't working (nor is the samsung app store) - works just fine...

    My experience initially was pretty horrid, sub-10mbps throughput internationally, until Frogfoot decided to at least double check their end and found an issue that they fixed - smooth sailing from there. Unfortunately, as you can see in this thread, my current experience isn't the same as...

    More than likely they need all of that info to present to Frogfoot before they can ask for a technician to be dispached - some of the FNOs are just absolutely horrible in terms of making things the ISP's problem. I don't know if that's the case here, but all I know is that I had the same...
