The fact you have packet loss on Bahrain and Belgium which is picked up locally by Amazon and Google means your fibre network is the problemSeeing random extra latency and packet loss to certain destinations from JHB onwards (on Openserve in KZN). Does this have anything to do with CISP or is it Openserve again?

This is what the server list in Apex Legends looks like, crazy packet loss and everything is about 8ms higher than usual:

The main reason I asked is because KZN NLD's have had a lot of problems in the past and since I'm not getting any packet loss to KZN servers but only from JHB onwards, I wanted to know if that could possibly be the problem.The fact you have packet loss on Bahrain and Belgium which is picked up locally by Amazon and Google means your fibre network is the problem
This has to be a cryptic message being sent out for certain people to g to a braai, this is like a weekly event now...Dear Octotel Clients,

If you lose connectivity between the maintenance window it is the result of the scheduled maintenance. Our Engineers will be on site to ensure down time is kept to an absolute minimum. During this time customers may experience intermittent to no connectivity.
A few weeks ago I noticed that they were actually pulling new fibre through the already installed ducts. Maybe they've picked up issues on the old fibre runs. Who knows...This has to be a cryptic message being sent out for certain people to g to a braai, this is like a weekly event now...
Perfect thanks.@PBCool not sure who asked but one of the CISP support staff called about the packet loss issue, instead of trying to explain all this from the beginning to him and to generally have this officially logged I opened a ticket (COOL-20210927-776749). That ticket includes a packet capture and speedtest results, plus some anecdotal stuff to help explain the history.
