Broadband connection

Dropping pings to Cloudflare servers with Vodafone broadband.

A server I use all the time is using Cloudflare and I'm dropping pings constantly to it.

Pings to cloudflare.com are also dropping.

Pings to 1.1.1.1 don't drop, but they go high latency sometimes. 

 

pinging google.co.uk, yahoo.com and a few other web servers I run are flawless. 

 

This has been happening for days now.

So the question is:  What problem is this causing you?

 

If you have a server that is purposed for a set function, it'll prioritise that function, and delay or ignore other requests - either immediately or after a set period.

To give high quality service on Cloudflare they may be deliberately depressing ping in favour of dns.

Hi JoeC002, I am having exactly the same issues, I am with Vodafone and they are saying that they are not responsible, but it seems that they are responsible 100%, my internet connection is constantly dropping, may I ask you please how did you measure the ping on cloudflare using cmd?

Cloudflare's DNS server is 1.1.1.1, so ping 1.1.1.1 will do it.

C:\Users\Jayach>ping 1.1.1.1

Pinging 1.1.1.1 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 1.1.1.1: bytes=32 time=10ms TTL=58
Reply from 1.1.1.1: bytes=32 time=10ms TTL=58
Reply from 1.1.1.1: bytes=32 time=7ms TTL=58
Reply from 1.1.1.1: bytes=32 time=8ms TTL=58

Ping statistics for 1.1.1.1:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 7ms, Maximum = 10ms, Average = 8ms
