it removes last mile packetloss, edit: it's still there but there is no loss between proxy server and source.
Hmm ok.. so for international where pings are higher the packetloss is more profoundI was told that this behavior is indicative of packetloss on my line, and international throughput suffers badly due to certain tcp mechanisms which the proxy server handles more efficiently. It still doesn't make complete sense to me as surely the loss will still be there from my house, through the Vuma network, to the CISP proxy? CISP are also adamant that there is nothing wrong with their network, so that means it has to be the Vuma line.
