High ping while gaming

So, long story short, I've recently been plagued with a bad spell of high ping, whenever it comes to online gaming, other than that, my download speeds have been fine, and my upload speeds also very good.

Playing across 3 games this week (Battlefield 1, CS:GO, and Team Fortress 2), I have noticed that my ping is abnormally high, and tends to randomly spike, making for some awful rubberbanding.

How should I fix this?

Re: High ping while gaming

is this via ps4 xbox or pc high ping can be the server you on if its long way you can't fix it like if you on a usa server it will be high ping it would be bit lower ping on eu servers and depends on if there server has alot of people on it spikes can be your graphics card and depends on if you playing on wireless network thats no good too go wired to your router belive me i played online with wireless network before and its no good with the lag or spikes in game play i play on final fantasy xiv online on a usa server it does not touble me i don't have have spikes at all it can be the virus software you have i put mine in gaming mode and i don't get spikes at all and i use F-Secure SAFE with advanced system care with Smart Defrag 5 on my pc and my pings stay around 12 or 13

Re: High ping while gaming

I've always been making sure to join EU servers, and yet, I get sudden ping spikes up to 400, sometimes above.

As for my platform? I am on PC. The package I have is the top tier of packages on the Superhub 2, so that is... 200MB, I believe?

Re: High ping while gaming

Have you got a PC wired to the HUB?

Re: High ping while gaming

thats not the right top tier 200 gamer is now and it maybe sorts out your you ping spikes if you go to 200 gamer but they will change your hub 2ac to hub 3.

hub 2ac with 200mb is not good for gaming

with my hub 3 i don't have any problems with it with 200 gamer with online games

Re: High ping while gaming

Can you hook up the PC to the router with a cable?

Re: High ping while gaming

I don't really think so, the router is on the lower level of the house, and I'm a room above it.
