I can't remember what my Singapore/China speeds/latency was, but Hong Kong is down to 250 (tested between 220 and 250) which is quite an improvement (~100ms improvement, down from mid to upper 300's) and get get a solid 100-150Mbit down which is really nice :)

@wingnut771 here's a new philippines trace for you. I'm assuming it's better than what it was but it'a running over my wireless so prolly not ideal.

That ping to singapore looks pretty good, granted this is best case.

Getting some terrible download speeds, even on local Speed Test. Ranging from 10 to 20 megs on a 100 meg connection....

Unfortunately tonight seems even worse, posted some of my Speed Test results earlier

Something about those numbers doesn't add up. Upload heavy usually points to a WiFi Issue. But these are LAN - so that rules that out. Please submit a ticket to support so we can escalate this to Evotel.

I'm comparing it to this:


But Echotel is running 3 major ISPs we know of. Webafrica, Axxess and Afrihost. Insane amount of traffic.

Also those are just peering points not an indication of transit capacity though. Webafrica clearly stated the new network they want to pick up as MUCH traffic from peering as possible so won't be surprised if they have very little transit compared to others.

Which site are you using to compare btw? looks pretty decent.

Maybe @websquadza can explain better. My network knowledge is limited though :(

The speeds seem to have stabilized now but still hard capped at 50 megs on a 100 meg account. I've logged the ticket #236757

Fair enough - that's pretty impressive capacity on the exchanges. This is where I insert a snarky joke about it's not the size that counts...

In fairness, Echotel operate a much larger wholesale access network; providing 3 of South Africa's largest ISPs with bandwidth. We have 20G capacity available on NAP JHB and CPT and 10G on DBN (PeeringDB records are out of date.. There's nothing much in Durban - which you'll attest to). As long as we manage capacity and increase these link sizes before they reach 50% utilisation (which we're geared to do with ease), I'm not really fazed about the size of the ports.

Glad to hear things are looking better. Might have been related to this morning's Northriding outage on AEX.

I've checked our end and your PPPOE session is connected at 100 Mbps. Your line is also provisioned at 100 Mbps according to Evotel. I'm going to request that they re-provision your line (tomorrow sadly as they're closed).

One quick question. NAPAfrica JHB IX vs JINX. Why is there more than 1 exchange in JHB when both acording to the website offers free peering? Why do some only peer at NAP JHB and others at JINX?

Have you ever been with AH? Just don't expect to get support like this, or at all really. I guess if you set your expectations low enough, they might just be acceptable.
