Dev's comment indicate that CO does share the same network as the STO servers. But local LAN bandwidth is orders of magnitude faster (because of the shorter distances), and the total bandwidth used is much smaller then the Internet backbone networks, so its unlikely that the shared networks are the source of the problem...
I was just wondering as NWN is available for download right now for LTS and beta members. I dead to think what sort of bottleneck we are going to experience when NWN launches. There would be a significant load on their main gateway it if is shared.

Just got booted twice in the last 30 minutes... Dont care where the issue lies, Cryptic is the one taking our money, they are the one that get the complaints, end of story.
Frankly if the effort to create new content was matched by the effort of quality control, there would be no issue. Its seems for every bug that's repaired by a patch, two more appear. Customer service is non existant, and the issues that effect individuals ability to enjoy this game are happening continually. This game works incorrectly more times than correctly, and that's horrendous.
Bottom line: we are complaining to cryptic because the service most are paying for is not being provided... continually. Better effort needs to be put into making this happen, and until it does ill just F2P til i see improvement.
Just about every time somebody posts their tracert, it shows that the problem lies with the Cogent connection in Boston, Massachusetts...
It's coming up with both USA and European posters.
Has anybody from Australia posted a tracert yet?
I'm curious to see if they go through the same connection or not.

I Really Do Miss the little TOP Button at the bottom of the threads.

(d) PWE is not be obligated to refund all or any portion of any Account fee (if any), by reason of any interruption of the Services by reason of any of the circumstances described in paragraph (a) or (b).
Would explain why the download speed for patches is so disgusting. yet again it was like that when i first joined before they changed hands to PWE. seriously fix ya sh*t. so over these terrible patching speeds and consistent disconnects and lag spikes.
It could also be that in the real world, nearly all of the trans-pacific cable links are over-subscribed for their capacity, and the only real solution is to lay more cables to meet the ever growing demand for more bandwidth...
As if Cryptic/PWE has control over current conditions, or can afford the multi-billion dollar costs of laying a new link...
You mean except for the part where I live in Canada?
Do you get paid to White Knight by any chance, or do you just come into people's threads who are having issues and tell them to shut up and deal with it on a regular basis? Either way I don't appreciate your hijacking an issues thread I started with this attitude.
