      Unbelievable, you have hundreds of ISP's to chose from and you are going to jump from frying pan to fire.

      I notice you didn't include any information on how much help you have had from customer support to sort the problem,just another rant post me thinks.

      Re: pings on sky broadband, high or low

      Any news if they will do FASTPATH/INTERLEAVING OFF?
      I'm on AOL...was on 2meg fastpath with 10ms...but tried the upgrade to 8meg and it's interleaved...which they won't turn off...and now pinging 25-30ms...so I'm thinking I might as well be off to Sky!

      Hi

      Sky won't change you to Fastpath, however they will drop your Max Delays to 8 which should sort your pings out.

      Give them a ring and go through the process. It's worth it.

      Even with max delays reduced I dont think you will see much better than 25 to 30 ms pings with sky. Works fine for me tho newsreader says different

      Thanks for the replies.
      Hope they will offer fastpath as an option soon. So basically I can expect same pings as AOL (25-30) or worse?

      Looking also at o2...they are on the BE network which is quite decent.

      Re: pings on sky broadband, high or low

      One more thing...has anyone tried asking for their 'max delays' to be set anything lower than 8? Like 4 or even 0?! With an interleaving depth of 0, it is essentially 'fastpath'...or I guess it's already been talked about?

      Cheers,
      Jon

      Re: pings on sky broadband, high or low

      I dont know if anyone has asked - but I think the answer for now is no. The problem is most people have this desire to get the highest sync they can, in most cases for fastpath to work properly would mean a reduction in sync. I guess skys stance is because more people complain about sync.

      Re: pings on sky broadband, high or low

      Hey people, I emailed sky a few days ago asking to be changed to fastmode, and they did it.. and it also increased my upload to 1024kbs, My pings are good now! and a faster upload is great aswell...
