I Assume We're Suffering the Dreaded Single Gateway Now

Recommended Posts

My internet has been awful lately, and I fear that the paranoid coup government has finally imposed their idea of dark-ages technology on their victims, i.e. the general population. I fear it's either that, or they're playing with shutting gateways and generally fiddling to try and get some understanding of how the internet really works.

My Internet is also very very slow.

Thai Websites are fast, but international sites take forever to load.

Don't know if it's the Single Gateway or something else

Where do you live?

What provider?

Example links!!!

Links are important, as there might well be a problem to specific sites/countries.

Such threads are not helpful otherwise,

I read complaints from Pattaya east side today.

My internet is not slow.

Just downloaded the 50 MB test file from this site:

http://www.thinkbroadband.com/download.html

(the data is supposed to come from the UK)

Took about 1:20 min, 5 Mbit/s on avarage (and I am not alone on the WiFi).

Not lightning fast but for an international connection quite OK.

ToT fibre, out in the sticks (Khon Kaen).

I am downloading from international servers with 50M/b sec just as advertised. So I doubt there is a single gateway.

Just did the same 50MB but it took a very long time ! 1min and 40 whole seconds.

I will complain ! smile.png

Having experienced problems in my office in the centre of Pattaya, I've done various speed tests, and all results from within Thailand are fine, but run a test to the UK or USA it is painfully slow rendering some sites timing out. May be a technical problem or ......

TRUE is our provider, and reported this to them to be told the standard gumf that they don't guarantee any speed no matter what the contract says but will pass it on to the technicians.

Hopefully a temporary hitch and no more than that ....

Download and run PingPlotter.

It will identify where the block is occurring. Easy to use.

I just ran my preferred/trusted in depth test: ICSI Netalyzr (from Berkeley University)

I run this from time to time and keep a link history of the test reports (which are stored on their servers).

Uplink and downlink speeds (to US west coast) are excellent.
The test result contains just two minor "yellow flags" all the rest is 100% green and OK.

Network bandwidth (?): Upload 2.8 Mbit/s, Download >20 Mbit/s

Your Uplink: We measured your uplink's sending bandwidth at 2.8 Mbit/s. This level of bandwidth works well for many users.
Your Downlink: We measured your downlink's receiving bandwidth at >20 Mbit/s. This level of bandwidth works well for many users.

The yellow flags are from ToTs DNS server (I changed from Google to "Automatic" for the test):

Direct probing of DNS resolvers (?)

Your system is configured to use 2 DNS resolver(s).
The resolver at None is not responding to requests.
The resolver at 0.0.0.0 is not responding to requests.
DNS glue policy (?): OK
Your ISP's DNS resolver does not accept generic additional (glue) records — good.
Your ISP's DNS resolver does not accept additional (glue) records which correspond to nameservers.
Your ISP's DNS resolver follows CNAMEs regardless of their location, but only after having learned that this nameserver is valid for the other domain. This is very unusual.

Just did the same 50MB but it took a very long time ! 1min and 40 whole seconds.

I will complain ! smile.png

You should storm their office immediately biggrin.png

The 'single gateway' will never come to pass - too expensive, too complex.

It's always amusing when the untutored generalize their Internet problems to some complex governmental conspiracy.
