  1. Problem is that not too many people are using it and in any case encryption wont help for long it can still be blocked pretty easily. Now the real problem is latency, I have already cancelled but a friend of mine still has it and I was at his house yesterday and man his internet was unusable, horrendous packet losses.
  2. yeah but why is it forced? want to spam my inbox?
  3. rammolo, are you the owner of that site? ...Why force people to register just to view the forum? If you or the owners make it so anybody can read then some people who don't like to be bothered with force registration can observe, if the topic is interesting then we register and post. Otherwise it looks like its just trying to boost registration numbers which is not cool in my book. Since i'm lazy i'll just keep posting here as I think its a higher traffic site and will get more exposure.
  4. Robo, can you paste your letter here so we can read? ...Good idea BTW, I'll submit one also tomorrow.
  5. Also I think they are probably "not seeing it" since they just ping the modem and do a reading of signal levels , etc .... What they are not seeing is that they are not only limiting the ammount of connections we can have simultaneously , but also we go through a packet screening process on their end thats causing all sorts of latency AND that they had some genius over there decide to completely kill UDP which affects a lot more stuff than P2P, like video and audio streaming.
  6. I called for the second time today (24 mins waiting) , and yeah I spoke to another guy who was honestly quite amicable and even understanding, he told me basically what the other guy said but without the sarcasm and stupidity ...He told me the repairs were done and that they weren't seeing any problems on their side , at least that that was what the computer was telling him (which may or may no be true giving him the benefit of the doubt), he checked with his supervisor about the P2P thing and he said that it was limited and that this decision came from corporate and that all he knew was that
  7. My dad used to have DMAX but cancalled it becuase they were getting rid of the line, but then decided not to and a couple of months later called to get DMAX back, they hooked him back up immediately and even sent him a brand spanking new modem because it was included for free.
  8. LOL, looks like you talked to the same guy as me, he pracitcally called me a liar and even had the nerve of saying that customer service reponds to calls very quickly and that I was a liar saying I would sometimes wait for as much as 40 mins without answer, he said that nobody has ever waiting that long in a call to onelink, I told him that if thats so then somebody must be ignoring my calls when they come in and he said some shit about them not being PRT and that they can't do that. . I also told him that apparently many many people were having my exact same problem and what had he to say a
  9. Listen people, if you are really dissatisfied with the service of Onelink and feel that you are being robbed then the best message you can send is to simply take the plunge and cancel your subscription ...if all you do is piss and moan they won't do a damn thing. After cancelling I received word that the P2P limitations is a new policy to save bandwidth and dissuade people from filesharing and this won't change unless they get a wakeup call ....the number of people that cancel their accounts must be extremely close to the amount of money they will save by limiting bandwidth. If a good number o
  10. Well I called today, the rep gave me some crap about my problems being imaginary becuase everything was peachy on his side , and that there were no reason why my service sucked for a the past couple of months, he only admitted having problems a few days. He said they were limiting P2P to 10 connections total, he said if I was downloading p2p that would effectively crap http also , looks like its 10 connections TOTAL no matter if its p2p or not. He was very rude and spoke to me in a condescending tone, he was hesistant to answer anything , and gave me sighs and a sarcastic tone, in a good day I
  11. WTF?? I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS! , MAN! ...If this is true then this is getting ridiculous , those onelink guys have to be really fuckin stupid. And what the hell is all this testing they're doing? They are doing them in live production servers that serves thousands of customers, it not a FUCKING test box, They wanna test? ok do it, but don't do it on my dollar. I really hope the people in charge at Onelink suffer something like .... like a kidney stone the size of Mt Everest.
  12. Did you clear your cache before doing the tests?
  13. Well my DNS yesterday was dead, at least from 6 pm upwards couldn't use it. Checked it this morning and at least DNS was alive again. Onelink is becoming synonymous with mediocrity. This thread is getting pretty darn big. I am *THIS* close to going with a competitor. Anything new out there?
  14. I'm out of my apartment for the weekend but I'll certainly check my onelink connection as soon as I get back, if it still sucks then that centennial alternative looks pretty tempting. Thanks for the heads up! EDIT: Didn't see the 1 year required contract! that's a major let down.
  15. It's funny that while calling tech support today they had audio advertising the change and said "this will not affect your connection in any way" Got DACO?
  16. Only that blocking P2P creats a whole new set of problems, many people , like a previous poster depend on p2p for distribution and simply will have no use for a 3Mbit p2peerless connection. Let's face it, without p2p most people wouldn't need / want such a service. Even if they manage to fix and give me my full 3Mbit, without p2p I would still cancel even if there are no alternatives I would do it out of principle and protest. ADD : Just got a DNS error after submitting, so my bad if there's a double post. ALSO : Why would I pay $55 a month for browsing the internet , cheking email ,
  17. And how is blocking p2p a good thing? P2P has its legitimate uses, they are blocking technologies not "innapropriate use" which is bullc**p. If they don't change this policy I will effectively cancel my account and take my business someplace else, hell i'll take some 128 KB DMAX or Wireless service over this sh*t anyday. I'm being called a lagger and a disconnector at my chess sites and they can't even believe I have a "3Mbit" broadband connection. ...Maybe they have some slow ass mechanism analyzing packets for p2p activity which might also be adding to the extremely poor speed performance.
  18. I was worried I was the only one. I've been having all sorts of problems going on a few weeks now. I'm having high latency, loss packets (gets me booted off chess servers) , dns problems , SLOW speeds and now I pretty much think they are analyzing my recieved packets and filtering my Bittorrent downloads, since a few days I pretty much can't download anything with Bittorrent. I called customer support and left a message to a supervisor to call me back , if this isn't fixed THIS week then adelphia/onelinkpr/san juan cable can kiss my ass.
