Default any Metronet customers on higher speeds

Just wanted to check on 1 Mbps or 2 Mbps service being OK.

Can you confirm who actually supplies the ADSL connectivity ?

A traceroute to say news.bbc.co.uk would be useful, and the part
of the login user details after the "@" also handy... (From the
past, dial-up access wasn't in-house but supplied by AIH, so is
ADSL done on similar lines ?) Peter M.

Default any Metronet customers on higher speeds

Dear Peter,

BT enable the DSLAM to ADSL modem/router link, and as-if-by-magic (TM) the
data appears on our network. We do not resell BT's ADSL connection, we have
our own peers (two of them plus backups). You should know that the all ADSL
connections follow the same route and arrive in the same place on our
network; so a traceroute from a 512kbps connection should be the same as a
1Mbps and 2Mbps one.

Bear in mind that recently the BBC decided to move their servers to the US,
stranger things have happened.....xpilot and such though is perfectly
okay....

From one of our customers, a 1Mbps link to several sites:

No problem!!

It just seemed surprisingly low, but the figures you quote of 10-30ms seem
more in line of what most users see.

Thanks,

Steve

As I said, BT supply the DSLAM-End User link, this goes via ATM to
BT which then appears by magic on our network. I would be surprised
if the latencies were high, especially as its pretty much ATM to just
one stop short of our network infrastructure. The first two hops
should always be low as its still within BT network and really is
just pure ATM up to those points.

However, I will be honest and tell you that Andy is on the same
'Ilford' BT major ATM node....or whatever they call it. This means,
if I remember correctly, that once it gets to his local exchange, it
then goes straight to Ilford which is our local point-of-presence
with the BT ADSL ATM network. Hence the low pings. However when I
have been diagnosing ADSL users from our support line its very often
we get ping times of around 10ms to 30ms. Anything higher is normally
due to users complaining of slow internet access and we have to
inform them of a large dubiously titled 'media' download which is
taking place at the same time

I personally have a couple of Linux machines outside the UK I have
root access to, if you would like I can do some traceroutes to ADSL
users around I can, however I would be surprised if there was much
difference.

Regards

Alex
