Oddly, there was no topic with this name already.

This is what the internet is supposed to look like:

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 15.130/17.950/19.675/1.385 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 15.843/18.042/19.751/1.379 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 14.363/33.865/119.508/29.668 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 15.443/23.958/90.865/20.238 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 14.082/19.773/32.457/5.451 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 16.060/17.975/20.818/1.393 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 13.957/17.435/21.852/2.184 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 15.321/19.169/27.690/3.558 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 14.308/18.583/30.620/4.067 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 13.318/18.572/20.533/2.102 ms

… that is, things like nearby NTP and DNS servers are supposed to ping back in less than 0.1 seconds almost all the time.

Earlier today it looked like this:

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 15.342/47.384/374.541/98.652 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 13.788/120.318/1117.813/302.941 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 16.207/146.580/742.428/227.445 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 13.133/156.740/1041.439/315.378 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 16.455/89.247/545.833/159.789 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 14.169/69.890/618.876/165.608 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 16.236/168.907/875.962/267.406 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 15.574/146.603/1041.646/305.887 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 16.348/106.860/534.333/188.744 ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 16.253/202.648/777.159/270.421 ms

Editing enything at the BBS was a nightmare, “Reload Page” multiple times just to finish editing a few lines. And this had been going on for days.

TODAY, power-cycling the cable modem solved the problem. (Not yesterday, not the day before.)

I thought the technology had progressed past this point.
