High Latency time for certain location
I have Comcast Business 100 Mbps/ 10 Mbps connection where the speed test works fine as far as bandwidth is concerned. Even the ping time 15 ms is OK with me. I frequently connect to a server 188.8.131.52 and other servers nearby.
In the past months I have consistantly seen high lag time and high % packet loss occurring on the 6 th hop at IP address which is outside Texas where I live. (184.108.40.206).
I have contacted both Comcast and Tradestation.com which operates my final destination server (220.127.116.11). Both parties blame each other for the problem.The Tradestation IT people tell me that many of their customers with cheaper intenet connections and lower bandwidth have better lag time/ ping time than me!
Its not the bandwidth but the lag that is killing my business internet as the data stream is regularly interrupted everyday including weekends and holidays shutting off all my Excel macros. This packet loss and very high lag time (1000 -2000 ms) with my internet connection seems to be unsolvable. I am wondering if T1 line with lower bandwidth but no hops can serve my needs.
