Am I suffering?

Recent attempts to play BF2 have resulted in frequent ping spikes that I can't seem to replicate through any other means (either through downloads, pings, tracert etc). Is this anything to do with the new bandwidth shaping that's happening or am I just really unlucky that I, for some reason, have problems playing BF2?

I've seen my ping shoot up to 800 or 900 in game, yet have come straight out and done traces and found nothing. Other UK players in the same server on different ISPs are reporting no problems.

Id suggest rasing a ticket and letting plusnet know. Just incase its not a one off.

Join the gang.

BF2 has been rubbish all this year,to the point that I hardly play it now.
Yes,I believe it is the Ellacoyas (DALEKS) making mistakes.

Sign up for a latency check on your line @ http://l8nc.com/index.php and wait a couple of days for it to activate.You will then have some ammo when you complain to customer services.(just watch that packet loss go man)

Despite all Plusnet's protestations, online gaming is going the way of p2p on this network.

There is still an outstanding issue with [url=http://portal.plus.net/central/forums/viewtopic.php?t=40464packetloss[/url] on three gateways and some more widespread problems with gaming traffic not being prioritised properly.
