Bufferbloat is highly dependant of the hardware. Especially vendor modems. Good explanation here > link. But you don’t need to worry that much. C rating isn’t that bad. And as you can see on the graph, you have the fastest internet of all tests from this ISP.

I envy you with my 80/8 VDSL2 =)

I’m pretty sure it is due to the crappy modem/router I got from the ISP.
The second test even gave the bufferbloat a grade A with only 8 simultanious streams, which means as long as there are not a ton of connections happening (at a really high speed) it should not be a problem. (at least not a noticable one)

I would like to come back to the original topic of this thread:

Hallo there guys.<br>
Found a new place, and found out that there is fiber optic available. The best provider states limitless broadband and up to 1Gb down and upload speed. Anyone knows if it’s as good/reliable as I’ve read on the net?

Thanks for information!

You live in Switzerland as well, so maybe my experiences will help you decide:
My ISP is Sunrise. About the speed they provide and the reliability, look at the results I provided. I would say it is very good, but keep in mind that you need the right hardware.

The best choice for an ISP in my opinion is Fiber7. It is a little bit cheaper (~65 Chf per month), but you have to pay per year and not every fiber connection is capable to work with Fiber7. The downside or upside (depending on what you think about it) is that you will need to buy your own hardware (unlike Sunrise which provides all necessary hardware). However, that also means you can have excellent, reliable hardware rather than those crappy “internet boxes” you get from other ISPs. The downside is that you will have to invest a couple of hundred franks to get it all up and running. It will be cheaper starting from the second year you have it, since all in all the price is much lower.

One more thing you need to consider is this: do you really need these insane speeds? It sure is really cool! Most servers cannot even handle the speed, in my experience Steam/Orgin top out at around 60-70mbytes/s (which still means downloading battlefield 4 (which is about 64Gb) within 17 minutes) For me it made sense, since I am living with five other students who use the internet a lot. And with this bandwidth no one will ever get slowed down. By the way, all of these tests are made with a cable connection by the way. Over wifi, it tops out at around 250mbit symmetric bandwidth, so if you are using wifi a lot, keep in mind that your speed will never be very high.

Sorry for the long post. If you want to know more, let me know 🙂

I crave for it. Try for yourself: use some “regular” internet for just a week and see what happens…

Haha you are right! Once you have Fiber, there is no going back 😉

I got a reply from my ISP concerning the bufferbloat. The issue is with the firmware of the “internet box” and they have an update planned after the Euro 2016 (I find that date format a bit weird, but okay) that “should” fix the problem. I will see if that actually fixes it or not 🙂

Congratulations. Welcome to the club 😀

How are you results? If you seem to be getting too “low” results (for fiber standards 😉 ), update or reinstall your network card driver. That helped me get a better connection. And test on multiple servers, usually most servers cannot handle the speeds…
