High ping and while playing games ping is not showing the truth

Hello I have problems with my ping very often several times a day.

While playing games I have high ping but on my screen i have liike 40/50 ping my friend is saying I have 150 or 300 ping thats mean when I am playing for example Valorant CSGO  or other games my ping is not showing me the truth and sometimes I cant play games because I have high ping.

And this is on all devices my sister have the same problem in different room. 

I have 380 mb internet speed

Re: High ping and while playing games ping is not showing the truth

How are you trying to measure your ping.

Ping will vary depending on where it is pinging and be measured from and how.#

Also pings change depending on activities anywhere between you and the server being ping

(so could be affected by an upload or download in your house or with Virgin is could be affected by others in local area and if there was an issue or congestion on a server between you and the game then issues could show too)

If I've helped please let me know 🙂 Matt

Well it depends how the game is measuring ping, and also if your friend is seeing ping of that amount from the game to you or from his connection to you.

Please setup one of these monitors and we can see if there is a latency issue.
