Ping problems network congestion on Plusnet.

I have started having constant network congestion problems.
C:\Users\Meep>tracert google.co.uk
Tracing route to google.co.uk [212.56.71.185]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    1 ms  192.168.1.1
  2    20 ms    18 ms    19 ms  lo0-central10.ptw-ag03.plus.net [195.166.128.197
]
  3    19 ms    17 ms    17 ms  link-a-central10.ptw-gw01.plus.net [212.159.2.15

Don't see a problem there, the time to the target is 19ms that's all that's important.
Hops 4 and 5 may be slow to reply to ping but the fact that later hops are not slowed down shows there no real problem.

Re: Ping problems network congestion on Plusnet.

I looked into how tracert functions more carefully and you are right.
Still i have been having ping problems on online game i play regularly.
It might be that the game servers are having the trouble rather than plusnet and i will do some further study.
Thank you for your tip Smiley
