Is MTU Even and issue any longer?

Unanswered Question

Are MTU settings gennerally even an issue any longer especially over the internet? We have 4 different lines to 4 different ISP's. I have been testing MTU and all 4 of them are supporting 1500. I'm simply using a "ping -f -l 1472". I know in the past MTU was a big issue but has everyone pretty much conformed to 1500?

I have this problem too.

It is still an issue, predominantly when using a VPN as that encapsulates (and thus lengthen) packets.

MTU is still an issue. Varies per media, and standard. Ethernet vs. FDDI or Ethernet vs. Ethernet with Jumbo frame support.
