I guess the reason for the poor performance is the broken peering policy of UPC AS6830.
Traffic ratio between OVH and UPC is likely around 10:1 and therefore UPC is not willing
to upgrade unless OVH pays them a fortune.
Despite that UPC customers request the traffic from OVH servers (they are supposed to do
so, as they pay their broadband connection), UPC still does not provide enough bandwidth,
since they want to force a double-sided revenue stream.
On the other side, I'm pretty sure that OVH would immediately upgrade interconnects
with UPC based on zero settlement.
That means: UPC is to blame, not OVH. The only adequate answer is: cancel your UPC
subscription, if you have a choice. But be aware, that the Swiss incumbent is not any
better in their policy; exchanching UPC with SC is like out of the frying pan into the
This story goes on an on for at least 10 years, you can only exchange actor names: UPC,
SC, DTAG, FT, Telefonica, Comcast, Verizon... vs. OVH, Netflix, Hetzner, Cogent... and
Init7 (Switzerland) Ltd.

Objet : [swinog] Cablecom and OVH speed problems since years
I'm having speed problems when I want to download files with my 250mbit Cablecom home
connection from OVH. The files are loading with a maximum of 300kb/s. A MTR shows that all
data is transfered via a private peering directly from OVH.
As it's very difficult to get someone from the Cablecom network departement via
telephone or email support and I've seen there are people from Cablecom on this
mailing list, I would like to ask someone from cablecom to contact me about this issue at
marco AT naefmarco dot ch for more information.
