Re: interleaving is pants

Interleaving is there to help improve the quality of your connection.
If it's removed and your line is unstable it will be re-applied.

Re: interleaving is pants

yep thats fine, part of the reason for taking out the broadband is for gaming, when the interleaving was activated my ping went through the roof but  ive had a line reset a few days ago hopefully removing the interlaving now and the line reset a few days ago will allow me to get back to a normal ping.

Re: interleaving is pants

I would consider a ping of less than 50 as good. Less then a hundred, as decent. And less than 150 as the end of ok gameplay.

Re: interleaving is pants

Putting interleaving on shouldn't send your ping through the roof - it should only add 20-40 ms. If it's increasing it by more I think that indicates something else is going on.

Re: interleaving is pants

yep seems strange but the problem only started when it was put on, just want it removed and see what happens as it was never this bad before it was activated.

HI stewbett,
I have placed an order for interleaving to be turned off. The order is due to complete on Monday although it can take effect before then.

Re: interleaving is pants

thanks jo, on a seperate note ive had one of my neighbours come round last night as they are due to build a new house but my phone line from the pole comes across his land and needs to be re routed, he has agreed to pay for this and im awaiting a call from bt to explain what will happen but from what he says it looks like it will be comming from another pole from the next street will this run from the same exchange? and will you guys be aware of what they will be doing?
