Online gaming just hasn't been right for a long time now.

For about 2 years now there has been something just not right with online multiplayer gaming. Even though I always have a stable ping, no packet loss, and generally good all round connection stats. Everything should be fine, but it's not.

All online games I play seem to suffer from the same oddities, variable delay in hit registration/responsiveness, terrible hit reg in general, out of sync player positioning/seeing things very differently compared to other players, jittery movement on other players, players warping out of nowhere or warping back from where they are and the feeling that other players have a huge advantage since it feels like I'm always 1 second behind everyone else/I'm seeing things late on my end.

Here's a thread on Reddit from someone else in England(nor sure of ISP yet) about CS: GO of someone explaining the exact same problems (keep in mind this isn't just a CS: GO problem for me)

 

This happens across all games, over 3 PCs, a laptop and Xbox One(All connected over ethernet) in 2 properties (next door to each other), next door on BT Infinity and mine on Plusnet. It's much easier to see in CS: GO due to how the game works, you can really tell when something is delayed. In other games, it's not so obvious outside of gameplay just not feeling right, but the problems are there.

I don't know if it's a routing problem or what, but it doesn't make sense to have a stable connection but see all of these problems. As I said this has been going on for at least 2 years now and it's about time it was sorted. I've come across quite a few people with the same problems with the majority of them being from the UK.

Cheers!

Looks like Telia is still messed up. You can see the massive variation when the Telia network is hit...
