Ping Spikes in Game

Although I do not notice this while simply browsing the internet, I have constant lag (ping) spikes.

I play:

- Fortnite

- Call of Duty Modern Warfare

- Counter Strike

They all have the same issue and thus I am pretty sure the fault is not within the game or their servers.

 

I pinged google.com within CMD to see if the issue also occurred there. The answer is yes.

This issue has been ongoing for a couple months now. I am very upset with Virgin Media and will most definitely be moving to a different company if this doesn't get fixed.

Re: Ping Spikes in Game

I'm getting horrendous latency in games as well

I play

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
Overwatch
World of Warcraft
League of Legends
Rainbow Six: Siege

Speedtest wise I'm getting the full speeds I'm paying for.


My computer was recently kitted out with new components such as Motherboard (which means new Network card) etc and the cable used is a Cat 7 so I know for sure it's not my computer or setup.

 

None of the devices that are used for gaming use anything less than a Cat 7 Cable.

 

All devices are fully up to date with network card drivers etc

 

 

I eventually want to upgrade to Gig1 but while my connection cannot be used for the main purpose it was purchased for I'm not going to do so.
