Packetloss & Slowness @ FDC

I'm getting ~4KB/s from my computer to FDC's speedtest, and ~10% packetloss as well - The packetloss seems to start at XO's Chicago link, but that may just be their router not responding to all pings. Anyone else seeing it?

I'm getting 50kb/sec to FDC's speedtest, which is about 100kb/sec off my normal download speeds.

Thank you! I thought I was the only one. I am lucky to get 10kb/sec from ours, either up or down, and I am on a cable connection 3.0 down and 512 up. Even sending or receiving a file from another server located at say for instance EV1 only gets 5-10kb/sec!

Ours is also only used for backup thank goodness.

problem seems to be continuing, even though their speedtest on their site is extremely fast somehow
