Hi Guys,

I recently noticed a increase in upload speed from 50mb to 70mb. On the downside my ping has increased from 11ms to 34ms.

The increase in ping is what concerns me as i do utilize the line for online gaming. I just wanted to confirm if this has been a blanket
roll-out which has effected other Rain users as well. Thanks

Jip saw that as well, think it is something they did to try and improve stability.
After that change speeds were more stable but crappy ping

Thanks for the reply buddy, much appreciated. I guess those who would utilize 5G for gaming would notice the ping increase.

All about routing and the no of hops and the number of partners and the settings and .....
Rain is flopping around like fish out of the rain while they fumble to fix their backbone infrastructure.

Rain dropped wiocc as transit provider. Very disappointing because they had decent routes to EU.
So the number crunchers decided to make their books look good for the grand statement did they?
Why do they think the other options were cheaper?

Didnt Cool Ideas also switch away from them?
Might be wrong on this but I do remember something like this.

Something is wrong on the network. It's not affecting speeds but latency spikes and then slowly drops down and the spikes up and then slowly drops down again.....

If you look at the low values they are pretty good.

True that definately is not normal. @Rain rep a response to this would be appreciated since many if not all on this site are experiencing this issue.
