Uverse General Internet "Lag"
Using Uverse 18Mbps tier, I am experiencing unacceptably long delays reaching various websites. What can I do to improve this?
My pings are in the 200-300ms range as measured on pingtest.net against a server less than 10 miles from my house. Throughput isn't an issue, as I consistently get 18Mbps down and 1.5Mbps up on multiple speed tests.
I experience occassional request time outs going to some websites such as wikipedia.org, mycokerewards.com, verizon.com, and even att's own billing pages.
When the pages do come up, it takes anywhere from 2s to 15s to show up. Just now, I accessed weatherunderground.com and it took fully 7s in the "resolving host" stage.
I suffer the same problem across PCs, iphones, and ipads, wired and wifi, with security software running and without.
I have disabled IPv6 via the RG which greatly improved performance (from consistent request time outs to only occassional)... and now my youtube.com streams don't buffer every 3 seconds.
I've powered-off and on the RG several times over the past two weeks while troubleshooting this.
