High ping etc?

Is there something going on lately causing high ping in games? I do speedtests and i get pings of around 20ms... yet when im playing battlefield 1 for example i get 100+? i restarted my router it dropped for a bit then it shot back up again. Ive noticed this a few evenings over the past few weeks, since i dont get as much time to game anymore ive always thought it would be a one off however playing more recently its a constant thing.. any help? Sad

Sorry to hear you've been experiencing high ping when gaming recently.

 

It's worth making sure you don't have anything uploading. Looking at your usage it appears you may be maxing out (Or close enough to) your upload, which could be having an adverse affect on your experience when gaming.

 It's possible that when you're doing this, the time your ping is remaining low is simply up until the uploading starts again.
