for the last three four days... every second site would load the cloudflare recaptcha page. seems to happen when i am on abs ip. need to do more testing. load balancer makes things confusing here.

yup. it's abs. took out the cable and thewire.in skipped the cloudflare ip page. i guess someone on abs network is abusing the network. i am kind of amazed that i do not have this problem with excitel which is more likely to get abused because of how cheap it is!

connection is down since the storm in the evening.
checked the pole and it seems that the wiring is supporting one of the broken advertisement board that was stuck on the pole.
i am guessing that either the wiring is damaged or the box itself is damaged.

would find out tomorrow.

now that rains are back, i have noticed one thing... abs goes down more frequently than excitel.
this is despite the fact that abs is fiber so wiring is more secure i assume.
excitel boxes in my lane are hanging on poles and trees and some of them are even broken up.
it's kind of insane how stable excitel has been compared to abs broadband.

i paid for 3 months for abs last month. spectra might launch in the coming weeks.
would probably dump abs for spectra.
