Have Prime Network issues seen during last First Saturday and the Field Test been resolved?
During both the September First Saturday as well as the Field Test events, a lot of people saw network performance issues in Prime. During the events, Prime behaved as if there was a very slow internet connection although other apps (including Redacted) saw very fast connections.
Many people suggested that this was a problem on the Prime server end with load balancing or flood protection when there are a lot of simultaneous connections from the same set of IP addresses.
So far we have not seen an acknowledgement of the issue by Niantic. Has this issue been addressed in the meantime? Can we expect Prime to work on the first Prime-Only First Saturday in ten days? (And then even more importantly during the anomaly a week later)?
Can we please get some confirmation that Niantic is aware of this issue? @NianticBrian
