Ping not the best

Capture.PNG

 

What Ping does everyone get and what is expected from it? Download speeds are great hit 387Mbps on a good day, Upload is a bit annoying but Ping is about half of ping that I get in most games (30ms) so it's adding to half my in game latency.

Re: Ping not the best

The servers you're connecting to for your games could well be somewhere in the UK miles from yourself or even abroad. Without providing a server ID/IP we have no idea where it is.

Re: Ping not the best

Not worried about lowering the ping between me and the server but just doing what I can do on my end as think broadband test is still 34ms located around 2 hours away from me in WR9

Re: Ping not the best

What does your Thinkbroadband BQM show?  And what's your on speedtest.net using the default server?

I'm only a few miles from you, and my TBB speedtest shows a 21 ms ping - presumably to Telehouse London, and my Speedest.net ping is 9ms to Woolverampten*.

* That's the correct pronunciation, so it must be the correct spelling.
