      ne to sky unlimited, ping times?

      hi ive had sky for about 5 days the pings at peak times are getting a bit on the high side. Im base in kent is there a problem?

      Tracing route to BBC - Homepage [212.58.246.90]
      over a maximum of 30 hops:

      1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 192.168.0.1
      2 26 ms 28 ms 26 ms cr3.ndtwe.uk.easynet.net [87.87.225.43]
      3 93 ms 93 ms 88 ms 80.238.52.129
      4 91 ms 90 ms 89 ms te0-1-0-2.er11.thlon.ov.easynet.net [89.200.135.
      99]
      5 83 ms 85 ms 78 ms 212.58.238.189
      6 89 ms 89 ms 90 ms 212.58.238.153
      7 91 ms 94 ms 84 ms te12-1.hsw1.cwwtf.bbc.co.uk [212.58.239.234]
      8 77 ms 76 ms 78 ms 212.58.255.12
      9 79 ms 78 ms 74 ms BBC - Homepage [212.58.246.90]

      Trace complete.

      up until peak times the ping is usually 20 - 30 ms. then rockets between 80 - 300.

      Connection Speed 7004 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 43.5db 23.8db

      Re: ne to sky unlimited, ping times?

      You're posting this in the gaming section.

      If you search the BB section better, you'll find that some areas of Kent are suffering with bad speed at present. Sky know about this, it's been going on all year. They fixed part of the problem, but not all of it.

      The next fix should be ready soon.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps

      That is a trace route not a ping, they are two different things. To ping just type ping bbc.co.uk in the Command Prompt.
