This is due to an issue between Cogent Communications (our bandwidth provider) and Verizon. Verizon is allowing Cogent ports to max out without adding new ones. They are citing Netflix traffic as the reason.

Is it because Verizon owns a 50 percent share of the competing Redbox video service? Or can Verizon simply not handle the load of their paying customers trying to stream video? Either way I'm missing Comcast right now.

In other news...

Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch auditions are happening now!

Artists, don't miss your chance to draw something and see it become a game.

We too are having problems with Cogent at work. Only our issues end with Comcast overloading their links. Who's your provider? We do InterNAP.

Obviously you said Cogent, but I think you know what I mean

With verizon, I get an average of 25ms ping for most eastern/mid US based servers, 50-100 for westcoast servers and 80-120 for most European servers. I'll take a slow NG for fast gaming. Wish I had that google internet, though.

I have Verizon FIOS, and everything is really fast and awesome but Newground is legitimately the only site that I go to that I can't successfully load videos in HD at all, all day. Youtube has always been pretty fast, except for lately it's been chugging a bit.
Also, in my area Verizon FIOS is pretty much the only option now. :|
