Hi Ping

Hi I am wondering if it possible to have something done to improve my ping to gaming servers.  Servers that I am able to ping with my adsl service around 10ms I am getting ~40 with my firbre.
I can only assume interleaving or something is on.
Many thanks
John

Re: Hi Ping

Can you post a ping or traceroute to the gaming server? What are your pings like to bbc.co.uk ?

These are roughly double what my adsl service is getting and double what my friends in the north east of England get on fibre.
I am assuming I have interlacing or something on my line.

Re: Hi Ping

Hi Kevin
Thanks for the reply.  My pings are not that bad but more or less double what I expected from 76 meg down and 18 up service.  As I said my friends on fibre with karoo in Hull and one with bt in Scarborough are more or less half of what I am getting.
