Still experiencing high pings and packet loss on SF throughout the day, is it working fine for anyone else.
Hey man, did you find a fix for the voice chat issue? I'm with Stormfiber and have the same problem with Rainbow 6. I called them about the daily ping spikes (happens around 11 pm for me) and they said it was a country-wide problem.

I'm still looking for a fix for the voice chat, so if anyone knows please let me know.

Voice chat is blocked by the meatheads at PTA. The only solution is to use a VPN in order to unblock it. I personally use ExitLag and it works flawlessly and lowers my ping by 10-30ms to both EU and Asian servers.

I'm on PS4 for now, but ExitLag sounds promising for when I make the switch. Thanks.

I've been having trouble with torrents, they are always getting stuck on 'downloading metadata'. Has anyone faced this recently?

Anyone experiencing packet loss on stormfiber? I had a long argument with the support guy today who was trying to convince me that if ping is normal then there is no packet loss despite me allowing him to test the connection through remote access and all the issues were evident and he kept convincing me that if there was packet loss, then I would face high ping too. I even made him test the connection to their internal IP and there was packet loss and he told me that it was due to firewall and all other made up bullshit excuses. His ignorance surprised me considering that he was working as a network engineer.

I told him that none of my friends on other ISP are facing the issue, its only happening with their network but that didn't help with my case at all. He kept saying that their network is working normally. I have attached the screenshot to their internal IP, please do let me know if this looks normal to you.

sure, just press windows + R key then type cmd and after it opens type "ping 8.8.8.8 -n 500" it will take a few minutes let it run and take a screen shot and post the end result here. Do this test during peak hours (9PM-12PM) because that is when the issue starts to occur. Thank you.

Karachi
SF has migrated all users of Karachi to IPv6 (dual stack). I think the very first ISP to do so in Pakistan. They will gradually shift all other cities as well. Now no NAT restrictions and other network complexities.

I don't seem to be having packet loss issues thankfully, and I don't think I have IPv6 either yet at least according to whatismyipaddress.com (I'm in Karachi of course). Something definitely has changed recently though since I'm having a lot of trouble with torrents being stuck on 'downloading metadata' although COD works fine (it shows NAT strict in game).

I also noticed telecomadmin login on the huawei device no longer works which is strange. Seems they push changes like that remotely?

Working stable for me right now.

Maybe we can make a Stormfiber whatsapp group? If there isn't already one, it can help sharing network status, problems etc.
