No way to know why there's a spike in between the hops - but it happens sometimes. RIght now, I''m getting 113-120ms on both IP destinations, but I have experienced the same issue (on other Singaporean IPs) at other times, only for them to be resolved automatically some weeks later.

Perhaps show this to PTCL and show them a comparison with lg.nexlinx.net.pk and request them to look into fixing this ping spike.

Having issues on StormFiber too. It first fails to load at all but when it loads after refreshing multiple times it opens with incomplete thumbnails. Also if you try pinging all google services i.e youtube.com, google.com you will get reply as ipv6 for some reason which is absurd. Can anyone else confirm this too?

Yes i was having issues with all google services too but it has fixed since yesterday late night. The problem persisted from Saturday afternoon until Monday late night.
On the side note, my telenor 4G was completely in-accessible in that period. So there is/was some back-end fiberhaul cable issue probably.

yes you can buy but vdsl modems cost like 5 6k last time i checked
most modems have same broadcom chip
so go with ptcl for 2k

Packet loss could either be at PTCL's end, or some other interconnecting network in the middle. The best thing for you to do is to test it with a VPN and otherwise - that way, you'll know if the packet loss is at PTCL's end or a botched router in the middle.

    Get a Nokia if you want continued updates...even my Nokia 2.2 has Android 10 but my S8+ doesn’t lol

    In that case, I should probably avoid the Mi Note 10 Lite, its older than the other two. Barely any good phones in 60K that isn't samsung. A71 is a good deal too but that is a year old as well.

    That's a good point. Realme 7 Pro has a AMOLED display, which is why its attractive though I've no idea about Realmes software support unlike Xiaomi.
    Yeah, these phones often have attractive features and seem like great value (most of them are) upfront, but if you want continued software updates so the phone lasts long, most of them don't live up to that promise.

    easier way to narrow down is buying based on software support. If the phones aren't confirmed to get Android updates, I personally think they should be avoided.
