We have a ticket open with Sprint to track down peering issues between sprintlink and nap.net again. Slowness on 56k/ISDN is caused by this peering problem, which is both latency and packet loss. The net through sprintlink is fine... ----sl-nap1-chi-0-0-0.sprintlink.net PING Statistics---- 50 packets transmitted, 49 packets received, 2% packet loss round-trip (ms) min/avg/max = 53/92/189 ...until the next step at nap.net, which is the backbone used by the 56k/ISDN services. ----188.8.131.52 PING Statistics---- 50 packets transmitted, 35 packets received, 30% packet loss round-trip (ms) min/avg/max = 2163/2455/2682 We don't have an ETA yet on when this will be resolved, but a ticket is open and we are keeping up on the matter. -- Eric T.
