Horrendous upload speed to Twitch
Upload speed was a stable 10 mbps until a few days ago. Now it's dropped to an unstable 3-6 mbps, according to several speed-test sites. On the Twitch bandwidth test, it's even more ludicrously bad:
This is downtown Toronto btw. Is this a known issue? Am I being throttled? Twitch streaming is impossible right now. Thanks.
Horrible ping for the past few weeks
For the past few week I had horrible ping with my rogers services & was wondering if anyone else had that issue. I live in New Brunswick & all my friend that have rogers has the same issue. Those with Bell do not have it. The issue is this: While playing online video games, I usually had a ping of 50-80. Now it can go all the way to 150-180. That amount of ping is making games unplayable because there is too much delay & rubberbanding. I went on speedtest.net to try connecting to different servers & the issue seems to arise as soon as I am connecting to servers from Maine (which probably cause the issue for my online games). When i connect to a manitoba server for example, I get 55 ping. A server from Maine gives me 93 ping (which should not happens as it is much closer to my location). I have been with rogers for a few years & never had this problem. Now it has been a few weeks and I constantly get it. I have contacted Rogers & they say I need to change my modem. As all my friends using Rogers has the same issue, which started at the same time, I would bet my modem is in great shape. Getting another one would be a 3h drive for me to get to the nearest rogers store so I cannot try that at the moment. Needless to say, this is very frustrating & I hope it gets fixed soon. Anyone else have this issue?
**I wrote this in english for better visibility but if someone from rogers wants to call me to discuss this, please have a French representative contact me. My oral skills in english are not good.
Has anybody's ping improved to Overwatch? I'm now getting around 25-30ms when before the lowest I could get when jitter wasn't acting up was around 37ms. I used to get 25-30ms with a program, Haste.net, that would optimize routing to Overwatch and League of Legends servers, but I don't use it anymore.
I'm wondering if Rogers maybe made routing improvements to OW/Amazon servers, if there was some other back-end change, or if what I'm seeing is just a fluke for some reason.
Edit: obviously I spoke too soon. As soon as I unpaused the custom game I was in, my ping went back up to around 37-40ms. Really weird...
Paying over $100/month for worse ping and lag than back in the @home days for ~$30/month. This is getting old. We need proper performance, download speed isn't everything. Rogers, start doing something about the routing/pings and underperforming modem/CMTS hardware!
Streaming to twitch is also a brutal experience for me, the upload can't stay consistent, it drops and then it causes spikes to my viewers.
I am on Ignite 250/20 , so technically I could stream at max bitrate 6000 without any issues since it's only 6 MBS, however I had to lower down as much as 2500 (2.5 mbs) to be able to stream and make it not too bad for the viewer while still holding a decent quality.
I don't think much can be done, I remember the download acting the same way on D3.0 and only D3.1 fixed it. So I assume only D3.1 upstream will finally fix that and I will be able to stream at higher bitrate and being consistent on twitch.
Until then it's 2500 kbs and I have to cross my fingers for the spikes not to happen too often.
Good evening everyone,
Is anybody having high extremely high ping in League of Legends as of now? I have multiple friends in Rogers who are having the same problem.
I did use logs of lag to cover the raw network data into a graph but it showed minimal packet loss. The ping average is at 150ms right now.
I’ve been suffering from high ping/latency issues with Battlefield 1 for about a month now. I’ve identified the problem (I think) after much back and forth between Rogers and EA tech support.
I ran a trace route and it appears the bottleneck is a place called Akamai Technologies; everything is stable up until there.
Does anyone know who I should contact to resolve this issue? Who exactly is responsible for the routing involved in these type of situations?
