I will be moving to virgin in November from sky fibre and as a heavy games player I was wondering what sort of pings people get. I'm currently on sky fibre and normally between 8 and 20 to uk servers, 40 to 50 overseas at most. I'm in Leeds area, Middleton and virgin has just been installed over last couple of months. Virgin rep assures me will be great ( as they always do no doubt) but just wondering what people on it had to say. I have my 28 days to change mind if needed and will stick with sky if no good but I prefer to be forewarned if any problems are to come.
Can't say I have ever had a noticeable spike in wow but like you have heard some people have. Just done another test without anyone else at home using the internet and have logged of work and I am getting 10ms ping. At 9pm I would say that's pretty good!!
Well i got installed yesterday, 200mb vivid, mixed sofar on the pings, general uk stuff seems to be good, between 10 and 20 on average, but a bit higher further afield, strangely to one server in southampton it was 167, but i think thats gotta be a glitch
And warcraft, ive gone up from 15-20 on sky fibre to 35-40 on virgin, not a major problem on an mmo game but still annoying its higher, but more to the point its hard to understand why
I understand ping is worse the further it travels but why would it be double skys?
