Still the lack of quality of service surprises me with Streamyx. I think I’ll just call it Streamyx Shitband.
They still keep selling it, still keep advertising it, still keep pushing it…but their infrastructure can’t even support the current userbase.
At peak times it goes to shit, if I want decent latency (decent in terms of Streamyx btw, not decent generally) I have to surf at 3am.
The rest of the time, I am paying for this:
It’s partially to do with their new capping method, they don’t cap any more, they use bandwidth shaping..
And the lines aren’t high enough quality to actually support 3MB, so the Signal Noise Ratio is horrendous..
So I get horrible quality of service, especially at peak times.
I want my 330ms ping back, even if that is pretty lousy, at work I get 250ms, UK I got 60ms..
I’m spoilt I guess.
It seems like since they introducted the new capping method, I have to reset the connection every few hours aswell or it turns to complete shit.
It wasn’t like that before, I remember when it used to be decent-ish, when everyone had 512k, it really was 512k pretty much…now everyone has 1mb, everyone has about 250k ARGH.
