I am on Windows 10 and airtel 200mbps connection. But most of the sites take 2-3 seconds to open (firefox & chrome). Why is that? Cant I do something to make them open in less than 1 second? By the way, Google.com opens in 1 second.
Routing on airtel is pretty weird, at least for me
I have 2 xstream fiber connection, one is using Nokia nokia G-2425G-A, another one is using nokia g140w-f
Nokia G-2425G-A one seems to woks fine except sometimes it takes 2-3 seconds to load google search results
The real problem is the g140w-f connection I have, international speed is lower than my G2425G-A connection, surprisingly routing is different if I am directly connected to wifi of ONT, through Ethernet or through a router connected to Ethernet, Wi-Fi of ONT > Ethernet > Wi-Fi connected to Ethernet
Routing of all 3 combinations is different, tried multiple combinations of routers and clients but same results
The only reason I have not disconnected my nokia g140w-f connection is because it's in bridge mode connected to a switch, apparently there is no limit on number of pppoe and IP addresses I can connect using it, currently it's running 2 static IP address and 2 pppoe connection.
Every device I connect to my unmanaged switch can have its own dedicated speed and IP address using pppoe
Another surprising thing is that if multiple pppoe connection is connected to multiple wifi routers, the combined wifi speed is my plan speed but if connect using Ethernet, each has its dedicated bandwidth.
TLDR - it's a pretty complex routing issue which is pretty much impossible to explain to airtel enginners.
I also feel fiber is sometimes slower than 4G. I also see some packet loss some times, like 10 in 7000 packets. So I'm not even sure what to say to Airtel people, plus you'd have to probably deal with all the annoying "close all apps, install antivirus". Sometimes YT defaults to 720p60fps to, and I have to switch it back
