I've been playing CSGO for over a year now and have noticed in the last about 5 months, I have had some sort of ingame lag that I can't explain, yet it is 100% NOT MY HARDWARE. Today I tried multiple things to look into it, which resulted in me doing a traceroute to one of the locations of the servers I play on:
I can't believe that my internet has been the issue for all this time, it appears that there is some problem with the routing from virgins side to servers all over Europe...
It seems a common fault with a lot of servers. Find the ip of the servers that are the issue in particular and post some trace routes. This will help the guys here see at what point, and what servers are experiencing lag.
Don't get me wrong i am having the exact same issue with CS:GO atm. I havn't been able to play for a few weeks now without losing my mind.
You might connect to 10 different CS:GO servers, but they all may at some point route through the same server, or different servers. Obviously if they all route through the same server you would expect the problem to exist in all cases. On the other hand if they all route through unique servers, then there is clearly a different problem, or a similar problem that occurs over multiple servers.
The point is that the more data than can be collected, including specific details of where there is lag occurring at exactly what point down each route, gives a better understanding of what the problem is.
Welcome to the forum and sorry to hear you're getting poor connection to CSGO and thank you for posting the trace. I can't see a problem on any of the servers on your traceroute so I'm not sure if this is the same problem affecting others on certain EU servers.
I've checked your connection to see if there is anything on the hub and can see that yuor upstream power levels are too high which will cause fluctuating speeds and drop outs.
We'll have to get a technician out to adjust this and I've just sent you a private message to arrange the best time.
