Broadband connection

Dropping pings to Cloudflare servers with Vodafone broadband.

2: Seeker

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

Pings to are also dropping.

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


pinging, 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.
