I would like to know the difference in meaning between "At my end" and "On my part". On the internet, I think it's something to do with responsibility but I need more clarification about the differences in meaning. Can I use them interchangeably in most of the cases?

I would appreciate it if the answer suggested me similar expressions that almost have closer meaning to add to my vocab.

    They don't really have anything to do with responsibility, they just mean something like "over here", or "where I am", "in my opinion, or "from my point of view". A similar phrase (that actually sounds more natural to this US English speaker) is for my part. – stangdon Jul 27 '18 at 14:41
  • @stangdon so can't I use them this way? 1. The problem with your internet connection is not at the ISP end. It's at your end because your PC has a technical issue. 2. There's nothing I can do on my part, you should go to your account responsible. 3. we can't solve this at our department end. I think it's better to visit the technical department. where in the sentences I mean there are two parties and one of them has nothing to do with the issue so I can't solve the issue (by myself) or (by the department that I'm in) or maybe (at my end). It's not my party that can solve it. – user2824371 Jul 27 '18 at 15:07

    Sure, you can use them that way, it's just that they don't inherently have anything to do with responsibility. You can also use them like "For my part, I thought the movie was excellent." – stangdon Jul 27 '18 at 15:46
