      Of course Sky support Online gaming.

      ERM,

      The picture your showing shows a latency of 33 ms - i'd be drooling at that. Mine is 110ms to my nearest server in maidenhead !!

      Still - i've tried an email to broadband support - it says they'll reply shortly (and santa still exists of course )

      my picture is stats from my works isp. My sky pings are around 80-100 on UK servers. I do have a very poor BT line but getting something done isn't easy as any problems i have are intermittent.

      thats the point of a ticket system, you have to get a ticket and wait ur turn......you que for other things in life so this is another one im affraid. just get a ticket raised and call back in once u have the number after a day or so and see if you'll go through
