Pings Increased

as per title...
My ping has increased by at least 12+ ms to all EU gaming servers, i.e Cod, Battlefield, crysis,etc..
A call of duty server which is based in the UK the best ping i get is 48ms, Whilst other players are touching mid 20's, A guy from france gets a lower ping than me Huh  Huh Angry
Any reason(s) for this, My speed has not dropped and other than that all is ok.

Re: Pings Increased

A ping of 35ms, whilst a little higher than ideal on a fibre connection, is still absolutely normal and not something I'd be concerned about.
Profile Name 0.128M-74M Downstream, Retransmission High - 0.128M-20M Upstream, Error Protection Off
Downstream Speed 36.5 Mbps
Upstream Speed 5.6 Mbps
Regarding the fluctuations. are you gaming on a wired or wireless connection? PC/Console? What results do you get if you ping bbc.co.uk from a command prompt?

Re: Pings Increased

ALways wired chris, Infact the whole house is wired up,  on an Asus N66U router.
Wireless is about as much use as like Peeing into the wind.   Grin
My ping to the bbc  - Min of 36 Max of 38 , average 37ms , TTL of 54ms 0 % packet loss
All on PC ..
How can my new connection be so low yet the PN line be 15 - 20ms higher, When both lines are fed off the same cabinet.
