Server Internet Upgraded!

Posted by on Mar 26, 2014 in Minecraft

152Mb-image2Unexpectedly our Internet Service Provider (ISP) upgraded our internet connection today from 120Mb/s to 152Mb/s. That’s a 27% increase. We’ve never really come close to utilising our previous 120Mb line, the connection is usually around 8Mb but it’s nice to have the increase anyway and it does seem the latency has decreased slightly along with the bandwidth increase.

I’ve disabled for the time being our DDoS protection because we’ve had some connectivity issues with it, namely lag spikes. I will continue to evaluate DDoS protection for the server as time goes on but for the time being I’m pausing our trial as our current partner are simply not providing the level of service that was promised to me.

I hope you’re all enjoying the first week of spring as much as I am 🙂
