Unstable gaming on LLU

Unstable gaming on LLU

Was moved over to LLU (without prior notification) last month and while surfing and d/l speeds are generally good my gaming pings are unstable.

Most of the time things are ok. I can play for hours on BF2 with a steady ping of 20-30 on UK servers but then my ping will start shooting up and down like crazy, often leading to a 'connection problem' disconnect. As soon as this problem starts it generally continues for the rest of the night and I am unable to continue playing.

I've noticed that this generally happens during PN 'Peak Time' (but can happen during the day too) so can only assume that my LLU line must be oversubscribed and I get problem when someone in my area starts downloading mass amounts of porn or something.

As I game quite a bit (and run a gaming clan) this problem is very frustrating and I can be happily playing along with my clanmates and then my ping starts to go and it's game over for me Sad

Anyone else on LLU having similar issues? I'm really considering leaving PN because of this (and a few other issues) as I doubt very much that unless my connection is completly lost they won't move me back from LLU... :x

Hmm - well when i was moved to 8MB ADSL i did have an increase in my minimum ping to any server from about 20 to about 40. I have no idea if I have been moved to LLU though. And I have to admit for fear of sounding an idiot, that i dont know what LLU is. How can I find out more about it and if I am on LLU

I think interleaving is enabled by default on Tiscali's ADSL implementation. This might explain slightly higher ping times.
