[VPS 18] Ridiculously slow speeds over TWC (Time Warner Cable) to my Hostigation VPS
#11
For those interested I have done more tests and this time I got it ranging from 1-2 MB/s on just one HTTP/1.1 connection for the two destination points that were struggling. So what changed? Well, some parts of the route still go through Telia, TWC, but one notable thing has changed.

I now see the peering go through a new ASN, AS 6453 which is operated by TATA COMMUNICATIONS. I suspect this has something to do with the better speed. I have no idea what they have changed specifically since I am not that advanced, but I can guess somebody has taken steps to solve these issues I have been experiencing. I just wish we could get a response from Hostigation on what is going on with their network lately, hopping from being good to worse to good again seems a little weird?

I noticed when I trace routed the test ip of Hostigation, it seems to be really slow also... I get over 100ms from the west coast to the east coast, it's just poorly routed, probably they need to buy more bandwidth from other companies or get better peers...

Well, it can't possibly be worse than the bandwidth at ColoCrossing, can it? It's not something new that low-end providers buy cheap bandwidth, because ultimately they have to save where they can.

Speed is back to being low for me today again, even with TATA communications in the game. I can only guess there might be different link on the weekends, or that there has been some traffic limiting/shaping at the bandwidth providers.

I've just got upgraded to fibre internet this afternoon, was booked a week back, but then I don't think that will make much of a difference..
The connection, for me, goes over Time Warner Cable, but from the reverse dns names in my trace route I get, it seems to like to take a detour to South Carolina first before going back up to North Carolina, and I live in western Canada....

The physical detour you mention is made doesn't really matter. You will automatically take the shortest fastest route to the server, even if this physically doesn't make sense to you
Thanks to FreeVPS and Hostigation for my VPS 18!

No, you will not.

Your ISP can decide for whatever reason to set you or all clients from your region (or just everyone) to the longest route with the worst bandwidth carriers. And the other side can also for whatever reason decide to switch routing over cheap and worse bandwidth carriers (whether to save money, backup lines or whatever...).

That said in this case the route that is picked gets defaulted to the current shortest and best route even if it is bad. You have no choice after all. For servers in your control you might have luck. Some data centers actually are so cool and let you switch between peering carriers (of course for a fee and some maybe for free).
