Ping Noise etc

HI Guys,
Just wondering what sorta ping levels your seeing on the new unlimited service. And is it good for gaming?

Re: Ping Noise etc

Unless you are going from non-fibre to fibre your connection doesn't change so pings and speeds will be the same as you have now.

Re: Ping Noise etc

even if your ping does improve
your gonna get penalised by some game servers with lag compensation.
at my wits end with fifa.
my connection seems to degenerate after starting the first game.
it may not even be them though.
remember years ago when adsl+ came out and my gaming went downhill with variable ping.moved back to a lower download and things returned for the better.....ping levels were around the same.
could be that my router cant handle fibre over 40mb
because it seemed really good before i moved upto the higher limits.
