Recently stormfible is launching is Bahawalpur soon, PTCL is a freakin mess as they are planning upgratd to fiber since 4 years now. For now I am using internet provided by our local cable network I dont know what it is but generally speed is good 12mbps/6mbps off/on, and on speedtest it says boom info tech.

So should I shift to fiberlink usage is no online gaming only youtube/netflix and online classes. This local net is fine (100 times better then PTCL copper ) but disconnections do occur due to electricity cuts. Please help decide also how good is cable quality ? and is their HD box android based and is it worth it to get it over standard cable ??
Anyone ?

Is anyone facing immense amount of rubber banding in games specially Valorant, Apex Legends, CSGO or any other games? I am facing huge amount of packet losses on and off specifically Singapore and European servers only. I even try to connect different VPN but they first get connected and after a while I stop receiving packets resulting into literally no bandwidth at all and then disconnects again.

Any solution to this?

More likely an issue with PTA WMS, first they blocked voice chat and now they are trying to block VPNs and that is why you stop receiving packets because their bloody WMS drops them.

Such a good internet that they took ages to install it and then after that I got like two disconnects in a single week (just goes down until you report it and in few days they resolved it, but after two days it's back as same as before). Worst connection ever, my PTCL goes never down in my Gulshan-e-Iqbal area. I don't recommend anyone getting it. I am from Block 1 in case you are wondering. I am ordering a refund.

The customer service is not friendly too. I wish they can resolve these issues soon as many are affected. Anyone, tried refunding? Is the process easy?

You sure the trackers on the torrent aren't tainted?

Tried encryption? Tried a VPN? Tried another (popular) torrent e.g. for Ubuntu?

I bought static ip addon from stormfiber for portforwarding which I needed it to accees my home media server from outside my network via nginx reverse proxy but turns out they are blocking incoming port 80 and 443 and also ftp and ssh.

After mailing helpdesk and convincing them that I am not hosting any website or using voip they opened port 80 but still not sure about 443

If you are using docker or some other linux image and torrent never starts its due to folder write permission.

Hello bros..
I have Stormfiber model:HG6243C. I am facing issues when I try to connect to any VPN. Is this the VPN Passthrough setting issue or some other thing?
I tried getting into the settings in search for admin settings, but only the "user" settings are available. Any guidance would be helpful.

Not confined to StormFiber only. Almost all major ISP's are unable to deal with it. PTA WMS system is preventing VPN's to connect, dropping packets soon after they are connected. Specially Singapore and European region. But if you try connecting NA servers, they work completely fine.

True. Since few months this VPN blocking seems to be ramped up very high, previously openvpn used to at-least work (except with some other issues time to time) but now it connects for just a second and then zero traffic and nothing works. Checked with various different mobile internet hotspots as well its definitely something PTA is doing aggressively. In my case this happened with the NA server with OpenVPN on it.

    I hope Microsoft acquire SEGA or Capcom next they need some footprint in Japan and Japanese games on their service. Speaking of Square Enix I'm pretty sure Western division of SE that includes Eidos and Crystal Dynamics will be sold to Microsoft, CD is already making Perfect Dark with Initiative.
