Infinity Ping


Standard Member
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this recently i.e last week or so.

I got infinity installed nov 2011 - Service has been great.

My initial 7 days or so I would ping to a hosted ventrilo server at 8-9ms. Then after it settled down the ping went up to a 'shockingly high' 16ms :) Anyway I also play lord of the rings online quite a lot. This was pinging at around 20ms (eu server) then went up also to about 28-30ms.

Ok last week....we have since switched lord of the rings to connect to US servers it was pinging at aroun 105-120...ventrilo still 16-17...the last 3-4 days though with no disconnects my pings have all fallen back again to 8-9ms and at times 90ms for LOTRO.??

My bandwidth is still 38meg and 8meg up no change, same router, same pc nothing I have done has changed. I guess the only way to tell is do a traceroute I guess see if a node has been bypassed. Just wondering if anybody else has notice a lowering in pings this week? I am on the brentwood exchange in Essex btw.

Mine was originally around 15-18ms on speedtest with a line speed of 38mb. That dropped to a pretty poor 30ms ish with a speed of 30-33mb.
Lost connection for about 15mins the other day, when it came back it was back to 15ms and 38mb. Think I have been switched to the 17a profile, as the Openreach modem is now in sync at 53mb.

weird - I am still pinging at 8-9ms to my hosted ventrilo server and getting 8-9ms connecting to london speedtest.net. I am not complaining of course but just odd. I guess round of applause for BT :)
