Over the years, I have noticed a strange issue with PTCL.
Usually we get ~150 ping to servers that are in UK
~180 ping to those in Germany
~220 to those in Ukraine
But at a certain point every few months, something goes wrong with PTCL and you will start getting the double pings until a few days have passed and things get back to normal.
I have also noticed that the ip we get assigned is also responsible for the overall ping, like sometimes I have to reset the router to get a 20-30ms lower ping.
So any one has any ideas whats going on? Some flaws in the routing, maintenance?
Secondly I came across another thread here (very old) where a PTCL representative had mentioned that PTCL was not responsible for higher pings when connecting to servers on our eastern side. But guess what. PTCL is very much responsible for the flawed routing, we get 400ms on indians servers? 450 on Chinese? 400 in Singapore?
when compared to ~150 in UK? 280 in US?
And I am not talkin about some flawed tunneling in a particular game but I am referring to many games some of which having very good tunneling systems.
And besides for the past few days, not only have my pings doubled but also getting strange packet loss issues and webpages taking forever to load.
So ANY IDEAS any one?
