    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 2

    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...

    I think you have a line problem though - my result to CoreIX London from the same area as you: Are you having trouble getting the line problem acknowledged?

    The TCP one never gives me consistent results. I just ran it again, got average of 14mbps. Waited 10 seconds, ran it again and got an average of 130mbps - go figure. Are your actual downloads slow?

    I'm also in Cape Town - does it look the same when you do UDP?

    Doesn't look too bad to Coreix

    Over TCP, things look fine locally and internationally, it looks "okay" but not nearly as good as on UDP - although definitely not the 4mbit you're getting - see below. Swapped to ubuntu to do these tests btw, so we can take the tcp window scaling out of the equation :) CPT: iperf3 --port...

    I'm in the same area as you, also on Frogfoot, 200/200. I don't currently have any of the issues you seem to be complaining about (even though my iperf shows massive UDP packet loss to JHB and a little to EU, I don't see any of it reflected in my download speed or latencies in-game), so either...

    Looks like my packet loss has miraculously disappeared. I'll get a Smokeping docker up and running today so I can keep an eye on it in peak time.

    Looks like I've been chosen as the next unlucky person to be hit by packet loss on my line - Frogfoot 100/100 in Parklands in CPT - upload is fine, downloads are around 3 - 10mbps, looks to be around 5 - 10% loss from the first hop on my line after my router. @TheRoDent @PBCool @CoolChick...

    Fibre to the home seems to be "best effort", same as ADSL - the FNOs just "do their best" to keep you online at all times. If you want better than that, you'll probably have to sign up for some business line with SLAs in place.

    Glad to hear you got sorted :)

    Well said - I appreciate the level headed response. Having said that, raising your concern and frustration doesn't have to be vindictive or sarcastic in tone, although I understand the impulse when sitting without connectivity. I hope your issue gets sorted soon!
