Hey... I was wondering if there's any plans at visible to improve the latency on the network. I personally think 160 - 220ms is very high for a ping in the United States and it should be 80ms max.
This is something that I'm very concerned about because high ping can make fast speeds seem slow.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I’m in the mid-Atlantic and routed to either NY or KS. Both are sub-80. It could also be that the tower is congested or the backbone is saturated in which case there wouldn’t be much you can do.
It's not a tower issue. During the day speeds fluctuate based on usage... During the peak it's as slow as 2 megabits. This is normal. During the least active hours, 2-8 am, speeds get as high as 25 megabits. This is band 13 LTE in a rural area... So that's normal. However during the peaks and the quiet times, the latency is always spread between 140 ms and 220 ms.
If I go throw $5 in data on another cheap Verizon mvno and run a speed test, speeds are the same but latency is 80 - 100 ms, much lower than the latency on Visible
80 to 100ms on a regular MVNO means backhaul/backbone is saturated. It should be 40 to 50 if it wasn’t. If you are using Speedtest you should be seeing some packet loss% as well. Your best bet is to see if the other 2 carrier offers better connectivity.
I agree, what is the latest update (July 2, 2021)?
Came here from Mint, and they had around 30ms ping
Visible is typically over 150ms. Just as bad as no connection!
If its not going to change I'm switching out.
On maybe my fifth day of service and if I'm ever driving my ping is like 200+.. I've tested it... If I'm at home its around 70... Gonna spend the next few days running around and speed testing at different times but if it's going to be this high a lot of the times I don't think this is something that's gonna work for me either... Mint sounds a lot better at their price point if it's actually around 30ms like the one guy said..
I will report back in a few days - a week.. Maybe I'm spoiled after being on Verizon post paid for 10 years.. Sucks they screwed me over on a $800 trade in and gave me no credit after 6 months now..,
