I've extended my monitoring to include packet loss, this is 20 minute intervals @ 100 polls per interval,

I moved from the DC area back to Delaware recently and while I do not have severe packet loss issues, my ability to even reach certain sites has been impacted.

 

Examples are:

 

dslreports.com

subsonic.org

bugzilla.redhat.com

 

Severely slow peering with google services.*

 

I've seen things die after the handoff to another network or at the verizon handoff (peering point).

 

Here's an awesome example of the fun:


  2.|-- l300.phlapa-vfttp-36.veri  0.0%    10   28.8   5.5   1.5  28.8   8.2
  3.|-- t1-0-0-8.phlapa-lcr-21.ve  0.0%    10    6.8   6.8   4.9   8.1   0.9
  4.|-- ae5-0.phil-bb-rtr1.verizo  0.0%    10    7.4  29.4   5.4  85.3  32.6
  5.|-- xe-11-1-1-0.ny325-bb-rtr1  0.0%    10    8.8   8.3   7.2   9.3   0.3
  6.|-- 0.ae12.xl3.nyc1.alter.net  0.0%    10    7.6   8.1   7.2   9.6   0.5
  7.|-- 0.xe-10-1-1.gw13.nyc1.alt  0.0%    10    9.2   9.0   8.3   9.4   0.0
  8.|-- google-gw.customer.alter.  0.0%    10   39.5  97.2  18.8 207.3  72.4
  9.|-- 64.233.175.71              0.0%    10    9.7   9.7   9.1  10.3   0.0
 10.|-- google-public-dns-a.googl  0.0%    10   64.2  62.8  56.4  66.4   3.3

 

97ms avg latency @ google/verizon peering point... seriously? UPGRADE YOUR JUNK PEERING VERIZON.

 

I would love to know how to submit a ticket or talk to someone in their network engineering group beacuse this is some sloppy sloppy service.  I pay over $300/month for 500/500 and I expect it to perform.

I have set up ICMP tests to various backbones and graph them. You can see the awesome daytime/peek saturation effect on some of them 😞

Yeah I'm seeing things that trend with peak usage leading me to believe Verizon has let their peering points saturate yet again, like they did with Netfix.  I hope the FCC lays the smack down on these policies that only hurt consumers.

New graph showing the avg time to download a 32MB file from dropox (AWS) via my 500/500 FIOS.  My servers at work and other places take 500 miliseconds 🙂  Gotta love an avg of 29 *SECONDS* for 32MB.  

 

Dear Verizon,

 

  Fix your peering, I pay $300+/mo for 500/500 not for a T1.
