      Max delays and ping??

      Hiya lads

      Im still quite new to Sky bb. I was with vrigin all last year and had the odd lag but still had a four bar connection on MW2. this year i dont think i lag at all but i only ever get 3 bars now. On halo reach they say i have a warning on my upstream says its sub-optimal. Ping wise i average about 50-60 when i test, then i read about having your max delay lowered through sky... is this worth doing and what are the effects to my line?

      Thanks for your time

      Yes it is worth doing for gaming. It will reduce your ping and have negible effect on your sync speed.

      All of the CST members will know what you want, but some of the Tier 1 agents who you first talk to might not. If you have no luck with first, hang up and try again.

      I don't game online but I do know that in certain games the ping is all important, more so than your actual speed. I believe Sky are now doing a 'gamer profile', not sure if it is universal, or tied to Sky's own network, but it might be worth asking to be put on that.

      I don't think so, those who have gone on it are very pleased.
