We’ve been experiencing major, major, MAJOR lag while playing Warcraft in our apartment. This started a few weeks ago. Since we’re on a cable connection, I’d figured that some young’un was home from school and had just learned how to download porn.
But no — no, it’s not just our apartment, nor even just Manhattan. No…..it’s the entire EAST COAST. And it even got covered in the New York Post!
If you’re a Time Warner Cable customer and you’re having this issue, read this post and get your traceroute sent in. Call Time Warner, too. I plan to!
While I understand that the biggest latency doesn’t seem to be AT Time Warner — it seems to be happening between Internet backbone Level 3 and an AT&T server — TWC is very much a Level 3 customer. They’re also who we’re paying for broadband. If my dollars were going to Level 3 directly, I’d be on the phone with them — but as it is, I can only add my voice and ask TWC to ask Level 3 to FIX THIS.
