thanks, just my 2 cents
We are all suffering from it. It's damn awful. If my home access is slow, so is my smart cell service. So I usually cannot share a hotspot. Although I could not believe I reached this speed the other night!
I’m also in k.thom and went to pay my bill today at opennet ... forgot to ask why it’s been like that ...Revbo n Cambo wrote: ↑Mon May 25, 2020 4:25 pmUp here in Kampong Thom, we have the fiber optic line service, we normally get about 18m on the download and 8 to 10 on the upload side. We live about 2 k outside of the city, i was shocked we could even get the fiber service. I agree the OpenNet internet service as been HORRIBLE for about 2 weeks, but mostly in the evening, so bad won't even load gmail, seems better today.

Very slow , not loading well , I wish they had a choice for cable t.v. here like they did in sihanoukville or kampot .
Sure nothing for barangs here
Goto the Black List checker tool and it should already have your IP address in there and hit check. Mine came up as ! on 10 lists!!! out of 80 or so. It is currently on 7 as i forced it to change.
That in itself was a trip down memory lane lol.
goto the properties page for your network adaptor (yeah... that brought back memories)
set a fake IP.. i used 126.96.36.199
hit ok a couple of times to save the new setting... then go back and set it to "Auto" and hit ok a few times.... voila.. new IP.
This forces a new IP as sometimes just releasing won't cut it as the old IP gets reassigned back.
Anyway.. you can, in theory, set your IP manually, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx+1, +2, -1, -2 etc, and try and find one not in use but I haven't gone down that road yet.
Yes, I found that out, too: OpenNet's IP addresses appear on blacklists.
But, regarding my IP address, I've also found that OpenNet is constantly changing it, already. Every time I check https://whatismyipaddress.com/ip-lookup the address is different (and when internet problems arise I tend to do that about every 30 minutes).
I have asked OpenNet what the heck is going on with their so-called 'service', via email (no response) and via telephone (only a stammering operator who obviously doesn't exactly understand the problem).
The problem is due to the prevalence of malware on numerous local devices. Lots of spambots.
Keep changing your IP till you find a good one, and keep checking.
Theoretically ISPs can't do anything about malware on the customers device. But I think it's more a case of 'can't be bothered' to do anything.
It is doable, but many ISPs will wring their hands of any responsibility.
I believe that in Australia, if your device is hosting a spambot, your ISP will let you know and the onus is then on you to do something about it, or else they will cut you off.

That literally means the fibre cable connection from your place has fallen out, is loose or otherwise literally lost its connection. They probably just plugged it back in securely.
I suspect an international submarine cable problem (as alluded to above) because I can get 20 Mbps down/up to Australia, but the US is sucking dogs' balls.
What's a poor man do when the blues keep following him around.
Duh, you know that, I know that, but it seems impossible to get into the brains of the OpenNet 'technicians'.timmydownawell wrote: ↑Mon May 25, 2020 6:24 pmThat literally means the fibre cable connection from your place has fallen out, is loose or otherwise literally lost its connection.

As reported, I had a full disconnection today at around 2pm, 'technicians' came around, and of course at that moment the connection was restored.
But then, at 7pm, again "Loss of Signal", and again just after rainfall started. I've reported this happening always after rainfall, but they are too lazy or whatever to check the cable.
I'm with the other poster who regrets having renewed with OpenNet, as they are a shitty Internet Provider these days.

Joining the slow lane - is it possible in Phnom Penh? And how does the economics work out?
