Which Internet Connection is everyone using ?

So I noticed something weird. 

 

I'm on a Jio Gigafiber connection for more than a year. Used to get 95-100 mbps across almost all sites, including the "debrid" group of sites (real debrid, premiumize, alldebrid, zigbz etc). 

 

For the past 2 weeks or so, speed to all those sites has dropped down to 20 mbps or less. When I do a speedtest, any server within India gives a speed of 100 mbps, but outside India falls to 10-20 mbps. I tried downloading through multiple sources, including legit torrents, and I am not getting anything over 20 mbps. 

 

Fast.com (Netflix) shows 95 mbps speeds, possibly due to their local CDNs. 

 

I also have an Airtel BB connection, limited to 40 mbps. All those sites easily hit the full speed on Airtel without breaking a sweat, so the problem seems to be Jio. 

 

I did a tracert via both Airtel and Jio to a couple of websites I download from. Airtel got their in 6 hops, and Jio took 12. 

 

Now looking for options as to how to get Jio to look into this. Their CC is useless, and as long as the speedtest shows 100 mbps on local servers, they will not do anything. I had a word with them and it was akin to hitting your head against the wall. 

Same issue happens in BSNL and Railwire slow download and upload to foreign servers

I have recently moved to Bangalore for a new job, and I am renting a flat in Langford Town, Shanthi Nagar area. Can anyone help me in finding a good internet provider here. The landlady said go for 'Act Fibernet' but their reviews are bad and everyone is complaining about the service and downtime. Airtel V-Fiber is not providing the connection in that area yet. So, please suggest some other providers which are reliable.

Don't go by online reviews for Internet. They're bad for all ISPs because no one leaves a good review when they like the service.

I've been using ACT Lightning (125 Mbps, 650GB, 1Mbps Post FUP, 1399INR + Tax) since last 2-3 years now. We had disconnects in the early days, but now its rare. Even if you do, raise a complaint through app and they usually resolve within hours. I'm in Munnekolala, Marathahalli.

 

I get about 45ms ping (Singapore Server) playing Apex Legends. BFV was about 23ms but I don't play that anymore.

Okay, Thanks for sharing the information. I have called them up and asked for a visit on Saturday. One thing, if you can tell, how much is the final bill every month comes for your plan. My flatmate's company is reimbursing the internet bill upto Rs 1000 per month, so I was planning to opt 1199 + Tax plan.

The tax is 18 percent so add around 200 bucks to that.

Planning on switching to Airtel Broadband. Will be taking the 300mbps plan. Can anyone tell me what's the post FUP speed ? 

Do call Airtel and ask them what the max feasible speed in your area. Many people, myself included, are on 300mbps plan but limited to 40mbps.

Hold on Jio fiver launching on Sep 5 plans starting 700/- Led TV free with yearly plan

I did a trial run with them.

Everything was working smooth but suddenly the speeds dropped on selected websites.

They use deep packet inspection of some kind which makes it throttle particular sources or even delivery methods like P2P even if it's encrypted.

Hell, I showed them that Ubuntu torrent (legal) doesn't pick up speed and all they said was "Torrent illegal hai sir".

 

So in it's current state, Jio is only good enough for streaming.
