Starhub a.k.a. Shithub
Access to my Amazon proxy times out after 15s while using shithub = starhub 3G network:
HTTP Error 504 : Gateway Timeout The server, while acting as a gateway or proxy, did not receive a timely response from the upstream server it accessed in attempting to complete the request.
After debugging for 1 hour, I realize it is due to shithub's base station timing out:

shithub 3G phone -> Webserver on VPN [ok]
This fails yielding 504 error after just 15 seconds:
shithub 3G phone -> amazon Singapore proxy (nginx with all proxy timeout settings maximized) on VPN -> Webserver on VPN
What can I say except that shithub is really shitty?
