response to Buffering and packet loss on Excitel

@ngrhd for imgur are you uploading image as guest ?

try logging in I think imgur has some weird issue with all isp that use double NAT setup,

they mark certain ip as spammer which won't be visible to you but their support can check that

----

can you do multiple tracert to youtube.com also ping constantly for 10 mins (to confirm problem is with lco)

and try streaming twitch at early morning or when traffic would be less may be the problem is they oversell non-peer bandwidth

---

I think switch on 10.200.200.1 is configured to respond to traffic that is on peered network as it responded to google and in all reports latency to 4th hop 14.141.116.229 is quite low constantly

many server block ICMP traffic like twitch How to Perform a Traceroute to Twitch
  • Your route will likely have time-outs. This is normal, since ICMP traffic is blocked once it reaches the Twitch network successfully.

How to read a traceroute - InMotion Hosting - Timeout or high latency in between are not always bad

P.S. - I am not even a Excitel customer just trying to learn about packet loss and stuff.

So packet loss in some places is normal.. I thing doing ping -t might be better measure of packet loss itself. Also as I said traffic seems to be going directly from LCO to Tata and packet loss happening after that. I guess someone with Excitel can confirm if packet travels to Excitel server before going to provider nowadays..

that said if there is problem in Tata it should be happening in other LCO networks too. I checked that Tata IP in a lookup tool and it gave average speed of 2mbit/10mbit though..

yeah ping to an ip would reveal packet loss

I think problem is excitel is over selling their bandwidth thats why I suggested to try streaming twitch at early morning when traffic should be low.

Latency becomes an issue for online gaming for other stuff it won't matter much, unless it is super horrible.

Earlier my local ISP was providing a fttn connection (fibre to local guy then cat5e) 5 mbps connection and streaming facebook, twitch was horrible imgur gif would take time to load, now recently my local guy got another uplink from a different company it is wireless based (there is only one bigass antenna on a big ass tower at local guy setup) my plan is same 5 mbps but streaming anything is super smooth specially fb videos even at 1080 p. (with wireless setup connection latency increased a lot compared to fttn )

* * * do not always mean packet loss problem with network , some devices are configured to drop ICMP (ping/tracert) traffic or not prioritize it which causes high latency it is done to prevent DOS attacks.

Even in your home router check for security section > Dos protection > Ignore ping like these

Pretty good for me here, tried pinging google public dns about 600 times and got 0 packed loss, same for Amazon.in(200 times)
Its not just at any specific time, I get the same result throughout the day and speeds are consistent as well(95 Mbps up and down)
-- dead tinypic image removed ---- dead tinypic image removed --

I did a ping test after quite a while, 5-6 months ago when I got the connection packet loss was 3-4%
