I dont understand what PING is - and is 156ms bad?

Having tried the BT speedtest thre times in 3 minute window I get PING times of 156, then 64 then 127 Ms.
I was under the impression that low PING is better - certainly fr gaming.
My previous ISP (Eclipse) provided fast PING times of around 10 -15ms.

  • hy is Plusnet PING so variable and slow?
    What is PING anyway?
    How do I get a low PING out of Plusnet without spending hours on the phone?



thanks in advance

Do you need to have a fast ping, i.e. do you use VoIP telephones, or do online gaming ?
