    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...

    Wondernet Youtube peformance?

    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.

    Wondernet Youtube peformance?

    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...

    Wondernet Youtube peformance?

    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...

    Any Wondernet (used to be Seacom) clients on here?

    Should they not have monitoring in place to detect these issues? I see it is actually day 9 of this. Right now I have 20% packet loss to www.google.co.za

    Any Wondernet (used to be Seacom) clients on here?

    I have been on Macrolan/Seacom for a few months now with Octotel. It has been very bad compared to the past few years of VDSL. The support of Seacom is super bad and pretty slow. For a week now I have packet loss... They take days to ask a follow up question like a ping test.. then days later...

    Macrolan/SEACOM Feedback

    Are you still happy with Seacom? They appear to be the cheapest 100/25mbps ISP on octotel.

    Origin Download Speed Problems Lately?

    Vox support is still going in circles - not reading what I am saying, stuck in the same loop. I just cannot believe how hard it is for them to read or listen! Every second person that talks to me does NOT read previous emails with data, they either assume the entire line's speed is dropping or...
