      I believe the gamer profile is only an option to SVBN customers. I don't think it would do much anyway if your delays have been set to 8ms as this is the lowest value sky have.

      Sky Voice and Broadband Network. i.e. fully unbundled (MPF), line rental, calls and bb all through Sky.

      SVBN has a few 'gamer' profiles as above, but it's just varying bit rates with delays at 8ms that you're already on. If you're on 8ms/8ms, then that's basically all that can be done for gaming from Sky's end.

      i also have a ping of around 70ms to a server 200 miles away,
      All servers are not equal, I hope you were not basing these results on speedtest.net or suchlike.

      Open a Command Prompt and type ping bbc.co.uk. Note the result, then ping jolt.co.uk again note the result. What do you get?

      Can be selected from a droop down menu from the advisor you speak to, so if they say you are on 8ms you should be. I don't know this for fact but I believe that if they select to put on you on fast path this sets you to 8ms, Like I said don't know this for fact.

      User 05 is that correct/correctish?

      Re: Fifa 11 on xbox & ping

      For SVBN lines, it's just a GUI with a graph of options with little radio buttons to select. Some radio options have profiles with delays at 8ms, others have 16ms and 32ms. Interleaving cannot be turned off (i.e. fastpath) as it's not something that Sky offer.

      Fastpath offers no error correction (as far as my knowledge on it goes), so less overheads leading to low ping times. But, again, Sky don't offer fast path - only interleaving with delays at 8ms/8ms if you're wanting better pings.

      If it was done, it is against Sky's policy. Sky are very conservitive when it comes to settings, all their settings in the router and at the exchange are geared to give a trouble free connection. Fast path can give a lot of problems on a poor line. Even BT will not automatically put you on Fastpath unless your line meets their standard, syncing at a minimum speed(not sure what this is but I think between 7-8Mb) with a good noise margin. With BT you can request to be put on Fastpath, which can lead to a reduction in your speed.
