      Unhappy Interleaving/Gamer Profile

      Hello everybody,

      Earlier today I contacted Sky with regards to lowering the interleaving 'delay' down to as low as they were able, in an effort to lower my ping when gaming.

      The representative that I spoke to said my connection would be placed on a Gamer Profile and to expect a short disconnection shortly after the call, I waited and the disconnection occured. (However when calling again to confirm whether or not the changes have been made, the rep' I was connected to had no knowledge of latency or interleaving, apparently neither did her two colleagues which she conferred with while I was on hold.)

      Previously to this I had ran a tracert to bbc.co.uk and obtained the following stats:

      1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms myrouter.home [192.168.0.1]
      2 47 ms 45 ms 47 ms bm0.ww****-dhcp.isp.sky.com
      3 44 ms 44 ms 45 ms 10.245.131.193
      4 51 ms 51 ms 51 ms te0-1-0-0.er11.thlon.ov.easynet.net [89.200.135.97]
      5 50 ms 49 ms 52 ms 212.58.238.189
      6 50 ms 49 ms 50 ms 212.58.238.129
      7 50 ms 51 ms 51 ms virtual-vip.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.224.138] Trace complete.

      After the apparent reconfiguration I ran it again, with these values:

      1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms myrouter.home [192.168.0.1]
      2 40 ms 39 ms 39 ms bm0.wwsmar-dhcp.isp.sky.com [90.220.5.62]
      3 38 ms 40 ms 39 ms 10.245.131.193
      4 46 ms 46 ms 45 ms te0-1-0-0.er11.thlon.ov.easynet.net [89.200.135.97]
      5 45 ms 45 ms 45 ms 212.58.238.189
      6 45 ms 45 ms 56 ms 212.58.238.129
      7 44 ms 45 ms 44 ms virtual-vip.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.224.138]

      The difference seems relatively small in my opinion, with my question being whether this is normally the difference when put on such a profile? (though I would imagine not) -- and if not, is it possible to tell whether I've had the appropriate settings changed at all?

      I look forward to your replies and any help that can be given!

      Problem solved,

      Contacted them again and seemingly was connected to somebody able to do it all instantly.

      Tracert on cmd to bbc.co.uk now is about 22ms with 7 hops.
