So I have been observing over the last week or so that video streaming has been pathetic on Airtel (except for conventional sites like youtube, vimeo, metacafe etc.). While watching the speed realtime on my firewall as well as on the rainmeter network speed meter, it seems 95% of video streaming sites like putlocker, vidsden etc. stream at a speed of 20-40 KB/s!!!! At best some sites go to around 100 KB/s, and these are the only ones that are watchable. I complained to Airtel and they apparently reset my profile in the backend, which led to slightly better speeds at least on speedtest.net etc. but no difference to video streaming. Moreover, a technician visited today, and he also saw that some things work beautifully (http / torrent downloads at 4-5 Mbps), while video streaming was pathetic. In fact sppedtest.net to Delhi servers was at 5-6Mbps, though to US servers it was around 1Mbps (and 400-500ms pings)!! Basically in the end he just threw his hands up and admitted that there's nothing he can really do about it, and it seems that Airtel's routing is shite, perhaps indicative of some particular routes especially to the U.S. being down / slow. He took a few websites and said he will try to figure out more and get back to me if there's anything they can do.The kicker is, when I try to view a video streaming from a site like filebox.com, it is pathetic (20-30KB/s) but if instead of streaming I choose to download the file from the same page itself, it downloads at 300-400KB/s !!! :disturbed: So AFAIK it probably isn't an issue with that particular server or even that route, but probably some traffic shaping etc. on Airtel's part to curb streaming speeds (?) According to the engineer, they used to do it some time ago, but not anymore...... MEanwhile form their backend they say that they can only guarantee speeds to Indian servers and not abroad.I am just p***ed off and ranting because at the end of the day despite a 4Mbps package, the experience on the ground is of a 512Kbps - 1Mbps package... :at-wits-end: anyone else having similar problems?
