    Post AMBER IT or LINK3?

    Hi All,

    I will be coming back to Bangladesh for around 6-7 months and need suggestion on which ISP to take between Link3 or Amber IT. My main purpose will be online gaming on xbox live, watching YouTube, downloading from iptorrents and such. My service area will be Lalmatia so if there is any alternative let me know as well. Please also share your latency to Asian/SG and European servers if you are currently using either of these ISP's.

    Thanks!

    Yes I was wondering the same... (especially for someone who is operating more than one computer in Gulshan 2)

    Looking forward to hearing more indications.

    I don't know about Amber in Lalmatia, but a friend of mine got a connection in Nikunjo (He heard good reviews and I also suggested him). He went back to his previous ISP within one week.

    And from my own experience Link3 is stable in most of the time and abysmal some of the times. When it's not having any problems jitter is minimum (~2ms) but it's not exactly known for it's low latency.

    So I decided to get Amber IT 50mb package (due to the Link3 routing BS) and my initial impressions are it's very good for gaming needs.

    *Latency
    BD 5-15ms
    SG ~60ms
    Europe 170-215ms
    USA West ~250ms
    USA East ~285ms

    Update -> Oceania 140-170ms

    Xbox One Online Gaming
    Its smooth for playing Fifa 18 online, the only downside is that it takes a little longer to find/search for matches. Xbox shows the connection to have an Open NAT plus my connection is going through the BSCCL routing which helps a bunch.

    Bandwidth
    Its kind of inconsistent outside BD, during off-peak hours I got download speeds of 15-40Mbps on international servers. During peak hours my international speed drops down to 3-15Mbps. Mind you my connection has a maximum throughput of 50mbps. Inside BD the local speed is always close to 100Mbps.

    Update -> I had a chance to use the connection for several weeks to give a better feedback. The line is very stable, almost no downtime and maximum speed can be reached most of the time if you are downloading a torrent or regular downloadable using a software like IDM, even in international servers. Youtube and Netflix are bufferless even during peak hours playing 4k content.

    *Note: The above latency results is the best case scenario or the lowest possible latency that can be achieved in those regions.
