(#vnib3na) So this is your latency and bandwidth to my Mills DC 😆
Quite good considering 👌
Can you do a speed test to https://speedtest.mills.io and screenshot the result here? 🤗
(#alwe2fq) Forward me their response and I’ll deal with ‘em for you 😆
(#qucyl2q) Agreed the technology is much improved compared to the old high orbit sats 👌
(#alwe2fq) Microsoft replied and said: “Not qualified for mitigation.” No reason given.
(#qucyl2q) Latency to the sat and back to a uplink station is actually ~45ms because the orbit is so much closer to the ground than say a Hughesnet.
Not sure if Starlink satellites are in orbit around/over Australia yet, but I wouldn’t go with that option anyway due to the latency alone.
I believe it is being trialled in some places in Aus already. I will admit, I’ve been signed up for the beta for a while and it’s supposed to be coming to my area sometime in 2022, though that may be delayed due to the chip shortage stuff.
I think the latency is supposed to be 45-60ms on average, which while not as good as fixed line obviously, is leagues better than old fashioned high orbit satellite broadband which is about 600~ms.
(#ws7fslq) Yeah the timer is because everyone gets the same word each day. You get one word with 6 trys and compare with friends on how you came to the solution.
(#x47vufq) I mean you don’t even have to do the game to make a fake emoji result. But its a fun little challenge for brain food.
(#eo4qq2q) This is like my 5rh day at it. I suck at words and spelling. So this is good practice.
(#qucyl2q) Wow. I’m paying about 100 USD for my cable internet. Hard to estimate since its part of a tvd bundle. But it is 1.2Gbit down and 40Mbit up. And speed tests at that on the regular. The new house will have FTTH gigabit for 80ish.
Do they have Starlink beta down there yet?
(#tyj4yrq) @screem welcome!! great to see a new pod!! woohoo 🎉
(#tyj4yrq) Err Well*
(#tyj4yrq) Aell it’s very nice 👌
(#qa5hioa) I get my lovely wife to try to take decent mugshots of me that well ya know, present well 😂 – sad thing is I don’t even really know what I look like anymore, I don’t recognize myself 😅
I was on a video call with Attract.AI and the co-founders jumped on our video call to say hi and see how I was doing (we use them for recruiting in my current day job) – Well this happened! 😂
@email@example.com Hello! 👋 Welcome to my Yarn.social pod 🤗
(#vk5vaba) @firstname.lastname@example.org one day it will get faster. It is just a matter of time. We went from 14400 Bauds modems, to 10Mbps, to 50Mbps, to 200Mbps, to 700Mbps, to the now 1Gbps. And, well, you just saw what’s coming. I can’t help but wonder how will it be 100 years from now.
@email@example.com Don’t forget to update your Avatar 🤣
See I can deal with occasionally packet loss but not ~5min long outages every ~5days !!! 🤦♂️🤬
(#qucyl2q) @firstname.lastname@example.org In terms of pure outages on the ISP side I think so, yeah. Granted I don’t run an entire home infra like you do and I don’t monitor it as heavily, but it’s a pretty reliable connection day and night. Being wireless and on a mountain where the ISP doesn’t even recognise proper coverage (for standard pocket devices, my Yagi antennas no doubt helps with the coverage) there can be instances of momentary packet loss I think, but that’s about it.
(#36up5rq) @email@example.com 👋🏻 howdy, and welcome mate! I like your domain (why didn’t I get that when I had a chance?)! It normally gets busier around here during UTC daylight, or US hours, but if more Aussies keep joining, pretty soon will be the opposite.
(#qucyl2q) @firstname.lastname@example.org That truly sucks. I barely even get 5 min outages on my makeshift LTE wireless setup (not counting solar related outages), but I could excuse it if it did. The internet at your premises, it kinda beggars belief.
(#qucyl2q) @email@example.com NBN Co is a monopoly Government-provided (tax payer funded) provider! 😂 So yeah you are right, we have very few options here in Australia. Telstra (what used to also be owned by the government before they sold it off and it became a private company and monoply) own all theinfrastructure, pits and conduits all over the country (effectively) 🤦♂️
(#qucyl2q) @firstname.lastname@example.org yeah, none of those are truly acceptable options. It reminds me when I used to be locked in with a monopoly provider. It truly sucked, for a long time. Now we have, easily, over a handful of options.
(#qucyl2q) I saw you bounce. I don’t know if we talked about this before, but what are you options, should issues with your ISP continue? Are you locked in to your current, or are there other (preferably better) options?
Another day, another 5m outage 🤬
@email@example.com Good discussion today on IRC 👌 Again apologies for the very badly worded replies earlier. Thanks again for bouncing ideas with me 🤗
(#mdyis7q) Oh gawd! 🤮 That’s sooo gross! 🤣
