unusually high pings :S

ok guyz, im baffled...


i play Jedi Academy, and since moving to plus.net, i seem to be getting high latency on american servers (in fact ive never had a ping below 40 since joining plus.net (on zen.co.uk i used to get some 30 ping on european servers))


anyways, i seem to be going through some american server called: cogentco.com


here are 2 RANDOM winMTR listings of a) a random ventrillo server and b) a random server in game.

just a little tip for you, cannot help with the pings, but if you put the results area inside the quote tabs, it makes them easier to read Wink

unusually high pings :S

Dont know if ive lost the point but getting a sub 100 ping to the US from the UK is extremely difficult and can be done in most games by lowering rates etc but theres no need to, why not play on UK servers or European ones?

I find that american servers will ping between 100-150 on most games and thats normal its just the distance and I hope I got the wrong end of the stick but your pings look within this margin so generalised as normal?
