    Wondernet Youtube peformance?

    But I get 1gbps for R1399 per month... except for youtube, although that should work now after about 2 months of problems.

    Wondernet Youtube peformance?

    Seacom has confirmed that they fixed the issue with the relevant parties. What I don't get is why monitoring did not pick this up - I was complaining for weeks.

    Gigabit internet

    I have had 1 gigabit for about a month - and I am the only user (no one else in house). It's nice when you have big game updates/downloads.... however it seems streaming Youtube in 4k or sometimes even 1080p is an issue... wtf (Octotel + Wondernet/Seacom/Macrolan). Unless you are a gamer or...

    Sigh, its been getting stuck on 1080p videos lately as well... Too bad fibre does not allow you to quickly test a different ISP like we could with DSL.

    He seems to be using Afrihost as his ISP, not Wondernet/Seacom/Marcolan.

    Perhaps use this host when you test: r3---sn-nx5jvh-j2ue.googlevideo.com That is one of Youtube's CDNs.

    Wondernet Youtube peformance?

    Wow that certainly painted a different picture! So I ran the MTR while playing a youtube video... I noticed the more I click around the video (to force it to load), the higher the loss percentage is. Sending this to them now as well...

    Yeah I am sending that to the ISP (that mtr was for r3---sn-nx5jvh-j2ue.googlevideo.com). I should have done an MTR before, however not sure if its a big deal out of 255 packets... I should probably just let tests like this run for longer - this one is for youtube.com...

    Wondernet Youtube peformance?

    1000/100mbps is just the best... Btw router has latest firmware and I never see issues when downloading game updates at up to 100MB/s.

    Wondernet Youtube peformance?

    Just had a video get stuck a few times and after reloading the page, it took really long to get going. The connection speed shown below shows how it randomly drops to very very abnormally low speeds: I took this snippet just after it got stuck so it has a buffer of about 12 seconds. Ping...

    Wondernet Youtube peformance?

    Anyone here using Wondernet (Seacom, Macrolan)? After upgrading to 1000/100mbps I started streaming Youtube in 4k since I have a ridiculous speed for 1 user. Since then (quite a few weeks) there are times (usually around 7pm) where they have trouble giving a smooth stream. I have seen 1080p...
