      Question Lowering max delays

      Hey all,

      A quick question to the think tank.. If I call and ask them to switch me to a gamer profile (max delay 8ms) will this affect my speed in any way?

      Getting a ping of 140 here and would like it lower, but not if the speed is going to suffer.

      Thanks

      From reading other posts, I believe it will reduce your download speed a little. If there are any stability issues with your connection, these could become worse on the Gamer profile.

      Agree with Scubbie about stability.

      In terms of speed basically it depends if your are on an ISAM or DSLAM

      ISAMs have profiles so one will have to be chosen accordingly.

      With an DSLAM they can just change the max delays without having to change the speed

      If you post your stats we can check and see if you are likely to loose any speed.
      I am in the process of compiling a document with all the available ISAM profiles that are available to be manually set.

      Going by your last stats your ping shouldn't be that high if it was 147 from your iPhone.

      You shouldn't loose any speed since your are on a DSLAM which means that only the interleaved depth will need changed.
