Re: High ping and Latency, Ipswich IP2 9UA

Wow, wish I didn't just resign with Virgin, got to wait until May next year until I can change. I've had countless calls to the offshore call centers who read from the script and wanted me to pay more to put a booster on my line. Also had an engineer out that claims there are issues in my area but not enough people are affected for them to rectify it. Never had a problem before March this year but online games are pretty unplayable. Checked that Ghost gaming but the highest they can offer is 70mb. Quite a drop from my 350mb!

I'm in area 31 (Bracknell)

I'm on 350mb with virgin media but with ghost its slower speed but nice low ping. Speed isn't going to make you have a better gaming experience its the low ping and good stable connections

 I would be lucky if I get 35 or below and even then it's up and down constantly
