      Although a low ping may cosmetically look nice, iirc the ping of 50 or so would make no difference unless you had the responses of a fly.

      Why pay more money for a lower ping, when it won't make any difference to your reactions when gaming?

      There's very little you can do about it as in all likelihood it'll be down to the route that Sky takes to get to the game server as opposed to the route your former ISP took which was either less hops or better servers it went through to get there. I play online a lot of the time and having also gone from pings of 25-30 to an average ping of 50 or so I can't say there's any difference between the two and it's made no difference to my gameplay / skills whatsoever.
