Re: High latency

@chedyus Are you in Ireland by any chance?  I'm not aware of Virgin Media UK offering a 240Mbps service and this forum is only staffed by VM UK staff, they can't help with VM Ireland issues.

For VM Ireland you need to go to this forum:

Re: High latency

The higher pings in your results appear to be for US hosted servers (or US companies, where the "UK" server may be mirroring to the US).

Anything under 70 ms is tolerable in gaming - your round trip human reaction time in gaming is around 200+ ms (try it here and be as disappointed as I was).

At a theoretical speed of light calculation the ping from UK to US coast would be about 45 ms, not including any optical, electrical or switching elements.  Now factor in the many likely corrections (eg the speed of light in optical fibres is slower than vacuum) and we're talking about 80 ms for a fault free real world service.  Add in some localised congestion and server constraints and well over 100 ms is still a good result.

So, I'm sorry if you don't like what I'm saying, but I think there's nothing wrong with the pings you're posting.  

And the same maths apply if you're in Ireland!

the game has a data center which you can choose what server you want to connect so I always connect to the London one because has the lowest pings but still the connection between me and them is not stable I keep getting connection time out while playing !

Re: High latency

Hi Chedyus, 

 

Welcome to our community forums! 

 

Sorry to see your experiencing issues with your broadband. 

 

I'm afraid we only deal with UK residential accounts, you would be best to get in touch with Virgin Media Ireland they will be able to check your account. 

 

You can see ways to get in touch with the team here

 

Many thanks, 

Hetty_R
