Peering: Sprint & CW

  • From: jlewis

I do alot of stuff on a system sitting on a T1 to CW from my home which
(through work) gets to the net via frac-T3 to Sprint and UUNet.
Suddenly, yesterday connectivity from work/home to CW began to suck
horribly.  Today, it's no better.  I called the Sprintlink NOC yesterday,
and their response was it was an overloaded peering point in Washington,
and don't hold my breath waiting for it to improve.  Has anyone else
noticed / been affected by this?

Between the packet loss and the latency, a 300bps modem would be
preferable.  I can get about half a line ahead of pine while typing,
waiting for chars to show up so I can see my typos.

Maybe we should cancel the increase we just ordered in our Sprint T3 and
order a CW frac-T3 instead.
