you're all lucky if you have bell or another fibre option to switch to and i suggest you do it. i'm stuck here with rogers as bell only offers very slow DSL speeds in my area. i've been having the same issues as most are in this thread since august 2019, its almost been a full year of this and its only gotten worse with no information on whether they are actually trying to fix the issue or not.
I've personally spent an awful lot of time playing GTAO with my friends but was eventually driven to stop playing due to the chronic server issues. Getting booted back to the loading screen was frustrating. If you frequent any online spaces where GTAO discussion occurs, server problems and disconnects are a fairly common complaint.
RDRO has similar issues too.
Do you have any difficulties connecting to other games or is this issue exclusively impacting your GTAO experience?
I've been troubleshooting with Rockstar but nothing is helping. They r question if it is due to my connection and told me to try using a different network such as mobile connection. I don't have data so I cannot try this.
It also wouldn't hurt to check the health of your IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity using one of these test sites:
If your IPv6 connectivity is partially broken, that might be the problem... and restarting your Rogers gateway (or your router) should fix it.
GTA5 Online takes forever to load. I wouldn't really use it as a benchmark for anything.
My brothers and I played and we all have good computers and different internet circuits in different provinces (some cable, some fiber) and we've all experienced absurd loading times.
Can be caused by many different things which we can't really troubleshoot.
As far as Rogers issues are concerned; the core issue isn't resolved but they did mitigate some of the trouble by the way they are handling the traffic. I suspect they are prioritizing gaming traffic as I am still experiencing issues with SIP traffic.
After 2 months of having the same issues and them not acknowledging it through numerous techs, they offered to credit me >$5 for 2 months of massive ping spikes and refuse to believe there's an issue when I've showed them traceroutes and ping plotters. The support is an absolute joke.
