Re: Need to change my channel type from interleaved to FastPath,

That's not a cable broadband thing - it's specific to DSL i.e. BT line based services.

Re: Need to change my channel type from interleaved to FastPath,

I  believe that's only applicable to 'noisy' DSL lines and not to DOCSIS cable connections.

I very much doubt you will get 5 ms pings to Google whatever you try doing.

 

And Ben beats me to it while I was wasting time running ping tests to Google out of idle curiosity!

Yeah you're not getting 5MS with a cable connection they are inherently slower in terms of latency compared to DSL connections

Re: Need to change my channel type from interleaved to FastPath,

out of interest where did you read it should be 5ms?

Re: Need to change my channel type from interleaved to FastPath,

I was getting 5ms with TalkTalk because my channel type was FastPath, with VM im interleaved so i get up to 20ms which is really poor.

Re: Need to change my channel type from interleaved to FastPath,

I’m not surprised that customer support didn’t understand when you called them up, the Fastpath and Interleaved technologies simply don’t exist for cable (docsis) connections - you are not on an interleaved connection because there’s no such thing.

You will never get anywhere near 5 ms ping to Google with VM, 20 really isn’t too bad but it’s not going to get much better.
