      I'm on Fastpath....

      My ping was around 60ms to the bbc website so i called up yesterday to see if they would drop the max delays to 8 from 32. Turned out I was already on 16 but they happily changed me to 8. Didnt make a bit of difference, ping was reduced by maybe 2 or 3ms.

      So i called back and asked if they had in fact changed it, turns out they had. The Tier 1 rep suggested they could lower it further but he'd need to put me through to another support level (which surprised me) but I'd suffer some sync speed. I said ok, lets see what we can do.

      Long story short, the next Tier rep put me on Fastpath, without me asking. Apparently this is a max delays 0 setting with Interleaving off?

      Ping is solid around 24ms for most UK game servers, 22ms to the BBC website. Sync rate has dropped from 15Mbit to 8 Mbit but I'm not seeing a huge drop in download speeds, web browsing significantly faster and obviously games have much better ping / response.

      Are they now actively putting people on Fastpath or did I get lucky and some chap put his job on the line?
