strange speed issue...

I am having a strange experience. I have the 2MB package, and on a fast game server for Call of Duty, I got 20-35 ping, never went over 35 really. Now this upgrade thing, I goto http://www.adslguide.org.uk/ and do their speed test, and notice I am getting one third more upstream, and twice as much downstream, which is good I guess, cept one problem. Now when I play Call of Duty, I get a random ping between 20-70, very unstable. Anyone know why this is?

When I do the ADSLGUIDE speed test, I do however notice that the speed does vary, but it has never shown to be less than my orignal steady 2MB.

I think I read somwhere, there is extra routing on the IP streams, so extra routing means more hopsSad

I maybe wrong though...If I am someone will correct meSmiley

So this means I'll never have a steady 20-35 ping again? If so I want out. Quite happy with 2MB if it means no jumpy latency in a game :?

Would appreciate some more import if someone knows...
thanks

If your still in the 10 day period after the regrade it can take this amount of time to settle down.

If the problem still persists you might want to raise a ticket asking them if there is anyway to sort it out, or anyway you can be un-re-graded :?

It shouldnt get worse really because if your upload speed is faster your ping should ultimately decrease. Even if there are more hops surely a upstream of almost twice as much should still bring out sub-30 pings. Seems a little strange.
