DNS problem going on in Railwire Assam. Many websites won't even open and those that open have very slow speeds.
It is even slow for me now, I don't know what the problem is to be honest, but everything is just slow now.

Edit:- It seems to be fixed rn for me, it went on for about 10 minutes, although it is kinda still hitching, but better than before.

It is a DNS problem for sure. Only Google sites like Youtube, Playstore are opening properly but others are loading very slowly. Railwire Peering is also not working.
Speedtest by Ookla

30ms to RailTel Kolkata, poor bandwidth (~20Mbps download/upload)
53ms to Railtel Hyderabad, bandwidth little better than Kolkata server

nPerf Speedtest

80ms to DigitalOcean speed-test Server, full bandwidth (>90Mbps download only)
100ms to SikkaBroadband speed-test Server, full bandwidth (>90Mbps download only)
I am getting frequent messages from Railwire regarding internet backbone issues.

Also noticed fiber cabling work going on in my town recently. Maybe the internet backbone across the east-zone is being updated for more available bandwidth.
