Hi just recently I have been getting high pings on uk servers, what used to be 20ms is now over 60 and I am experiencing laggy game play my mate is on bt 36 meg and has no problems at all usually below 20ms. I'm on 150 meg soon to be 200 and get great download speeds all the time. hear is a trace route of a typical server in the uk any help would be great.
Tracing route to server.fragnet.net [18.104.22.168] over a maximum of 30 hops:
1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms routerlogin.net [192.168.0.1] 2 * * * Request timed out. 3 10 ms 10 ms 9 ms midd-core-2b-xe-123-0.network.virginmedia.net [22.214.171.124] 4 * * * Request timed out. 5 * * * Request timed out. 6 38 ms 36 ms 37 ms ams2-ic-1-ae0-0.network.virginmedia.net [126.96.36.199] 7 * * * Request timed out. 8 * * * Request timed out. 9 * * * Request timed out. 10 36 ms 35 ms 34 ms po1002.ngn-ams1-cs1-new.leaseweb.net [188.8.131.52] 11 61 ms 59 ms 61 ms server.fragnet.net [184.108.40.206]
Sorry to hear your latency has been fluctuating and thanks for providing the traceroute. Your trace looks perfectly fine up until the destination hop where it jumps to around 60ms. Do you get the higher ping on any other games you could trace to for comparison?
