Hello everyone,
I'm considering Excitel as a secondary connection because Excitel doesn't provide static IP mainly and hijacks DNS but I have heard that Excitel has improved international speeds for everyone recently. 300Mbit for 1200ish a month sounds like a very good deal. Is anyone here on their 300Mbit connection? If so can you please share some speedtests?

Thanks

Yeah the static IP situation is shit but for DNS hijack you could use DoH via Firefox on a PC (chromium has it too but I think it needs to be flag set right now) and DoT on Android (system integrated on 9+) to bypass it. i use Cloudflare on both and it works flawlessly.

As for the stats, I have a 200mbit connection. If you want I could post a cloudping test (which i think should be similar) until someone posts a 300mbit speedtest.

Can you please post speedtests to Netherlands and Singapore servers?

Can you please post speedtests to Netherlands and Singapore servers?

Here, these are some pings from various regions around the world:



As for the speedtest do you have a dedicated server or something for me to test from?
speedtest.net is unreliable for bandwidth testing
If you want my personal results then I can stream 4K HDR Bluray remuxes (~100mbits video bitrate) from servers in Singapore with no issues (saturate my 200mbps connection)
Servers from Europe (UK and Germany mostly) cause slight buffering in those without a CDN but anything below 40mbits of video bitrate is doable (eg High Quality HDR 1080p / 4K Encodes) (non CDN servers touch ~120mbps speeds / CDNs saturate my 200mbps)

EDIT: Mixed up video bitrates and network speeds. Corrected.

LCO told me it'll be a bit longer before Excitel FTTH is in my area :( He also told me most of the neighbouring areas are now covered.
