Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

yeah, I have seen stupid estimates like that before where they don't know what the problem is and they give themselves a tonne of leeway just in case. I wouldn't be surprised if it got fixed in the early of the morning.

I'm a network engineer and I can assure you it doesn't work like that!

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

it happened to me a couple of years ago. I hate India because on the once in a blue moon I have to call them they manage to do my head in but I have always praised VM because 99.999% of the time my connection is rock solid. It died a couple of years ago (network fault) and they gave a fix time of three days time because they needed some parts but they managed to get it fixed at 4am that night.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

That's a very rapid fix, even a temporary one, for a fibre break. Impressive service.

Out of curiosity, what times do you guys work? Do you do on call / out of hours fixes / maintenance or is it mostly in hour stuff (unless something major goes down of course)

Reason I ask is a few years back we had a power cut to the whole street which seemed to take out the street cab too (no sync once our power came back up) couple hours later there was a VM guy at the cab, this was about 11PM and about half an hour later everything was back up and running.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

Hi dudes,

I'm wondering if you can help as it seems to involve the Uddingston UBR.

I don't think my internet is working the way it should.

When playing CSGO sometimes players warp on the screen and it has been like this for a few months now.

I've been getting similar trace routes to the one below, always with the hops after Uddingston timing out. Any ideas?

Tracing route to www.bbc.net.uk [212.58.246.93]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 25 ms 15 ms 15 ms cpc82427-dumb5-2-0-gw.20-3.cable.virginm.net [86
.5.172.1]
2 14 ms 14 ms 12 ms uddi-core-2a-ae9-610.network.virginmedia.net [80
.3.16.189]
3 * * * Request timed out.
4 * * * Request timed out.
5 * * * Request timed out.
6 19 ms 34 ms 23 ms nrth-bb-1c-ae1-0.network.virginmedia.net [62.254
.42.222]
7 24 ms 24 ms 23 ms tele-ic-4-ae0-0.network.virginmedia.net [62.253.
174.18]
8 24 ms 31 ms 24 ms pos6-1.rt0.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.239.237]
9 * * * Request timed out.
10 24 ms 27 ms 28 ms ae0.er01.cwwtf.bbc.co.uk [132.185.254.93]

12 22 ms 20 ms 18 ms bbc-vip014.cwwtf.bbc.co.uk [212.58.246.93]

Trace complete.

Trace complete.
Trace route looks normal with good time to the last hop (that's all you should care about). The time-outs in-between suggest hops are not responding to ICMP, which is normal.

No idea about your CSGO warping, except to say that it's not demonstrated on this trace route. Data will move differently to pings. Cable in general has more jitter than VDSL/BT. For gaming you're probably on the wrong ISP.

Sorry only just saw this. We do a standard shift as per contract, and then we do a week on call at a time, so depending on the fault could be called at any time.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

And so it continues we now have downstream overutilization.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

Moved from VM to BT when FTTC went live in my area. headline speed is 79/19 nothing like VM can offer but alot less headaches at peak times and alot better for gaming online ping dropped from anywhere between 18 to 30 on VM with random spikes of 30+ jitter to 15-16ms with less than 1 jitter. Most likely because in this area VM has had a hard monopoly on since cable was installed as its 2.8km from nearest exchange and adsl services were poor.
