Recently noticed MTNL has been acting real terrible, disconnecting and giving really sad pings, getting 70ms within city itself... it's really sad because I know people who get 11ms ping with local cablewala and fivenet... know a guy who gets >15ms consistently on fivenet, really thinking of switching....I made this thread to know if anybody else is getting this problem in Mumbai or is it only me? Can using Open DNS/ Google DNS increase ping? Is there any way to troubleshoot this myself? can anybody mention some possibilities as to why frequent disconnection + high ping? so fed up of mtnl :/

lol mtnl guy who just came to my house said the problem is coz of my telephone.. he said they sometimes conflict with internet and whatnot xD, said I should get a new phone. idk if I should believe him, it's true that sometimes randomly my phone goes dead, or keeps 'cutting'EDIT: lol just remembered my landline is completely dead since a while now.. maybe that babu was right afterall lol but seriously, can a good telephone really reduce my ping and reduce disconnections? lol

If the telephone is indeed causing the issue, disconnect the instrument and then check, that way you'll know for sure ;) Is the splitter alright ?

Three things you might do.1. Since your splitter is inbuilt, make sure all your home telephone connection are only coming from phone output(RJ-11) of your router.2. Check your telephone for any cuts etc. thoroughly.3. Change your modem ADSL modulation to G.DMT from ADSL2plus.
