      Success

      ok after 5 days i finally have a 5mb connection and have spoken to TIER 3 , yes i hear you all gasp in astonishment that someone has spoken to them.

      ok it took me 40 mins telling a Phillipine call centre that ive tried everything and my extension cable aint the problem. I threatened to quit and they put me through to TIER 3

      I said major problem was ping and the agent said no problem and went to the exchange and tweaked and put my speed up from 4.5 to 5 and reduced something from 32 to 8 which is correct for optimal gaming

      anyone got an idea what that was

      whatever it was my ping to a uk server dropped from 70 - 23 and foriegn servers from 115 to 60 so finally got a broadband system that i can use.

      HOWEVER IM SENDING THEM MY PHONE BILL FOR 5 DAYS ON 08702 NUMBERS!!

      the settings the agent has changed is the max delay in milliseconds on the interleave settings each way. Thus reducing the ping while retaining interleaving.
