Really? With respect, only (off the top of my head) one other member even understood the question. As per the OP, I want to know whether VM implement DOCSIS-PIE; and if not, why not (and when)? Bufferbloat has blighted the network for years, and it's (relatively) easily fixed. The studies I produced with Dave Täht, Vint Cerf (the co-inventor of the Internet) et al. and Comcast showed massive benefits to end users during the pandemic, and improved load on the network itself. Maybe you could bounce the question (and flent/netperf graphs) up to someone in Networks and ask them for a comment?

Re: Is DOCSIS-PIE enabled per specification on VM?

Hey tommy40, thank you for reaching out and a warm welcome to the community, I am sorry to hear you are having some connection issues.

I have taken a look at our end and I can't see any issues, the levels are really good.

What type of issues are you having, is it on WIFI or cable?

Please do let me know. Thanks

Re: Is DOCSIS-PIE enabled per specification on VM?

Sorry for the delay replying, I'm not a regular here. Bufferbloat will always be an issue on cable (DOCSIS). Unfortunately VM seem to have no interest in PIE or even discussing it. See how long this thread has been running, with no staff reply, for details...

You need to put your Hub into modem mode and install a router with PIE (or at least a decent fq_codel implementation) to help alleviate bufferbloat. Ideally, an x86 box running something like OpenWRT or OPNSense. Commercial routers which have working SQM at gigabit speeds are limited, but apparently the Eero mesh routers (PIE) and some Ubiquiti routers (fq_codel) can manage it.

How are you measuring the bufferbloat? Are you using a site like WaveForm or DSLReports, or have you run the Flent RRUL test to measure 'properly'? Check out bufferbloat.net (Dave Täht's site) and flent.org for details.
