      Re: pings on sky broadband, high or low

      My pings on servers are shockingly bad. I used to have BT and my ping was always constantly low. With Sky my pings are always high, jumping and it is impossible to play at a high level

      If you are a gamer and thinking about changing your Internet Service Provider look no further than SKY HIGH PINGS!!!

      Not at home at the moment, but I got this email anyway.

      Dear Blahblah.
      Sorry for the delay in replying to your message.
      I have contacted our Customer solutions team who have now changed your line to fastpath. Please monitor your connection over the next 48 hours as this may cause your line to become unstable and your line will need to be changed back to interleaved.

      If you need further help or information, please reply to this email or contact us on 08 442 41 05 15.
      Kind regards

      After many minutes/hours on phone to CSS. I managed to lower my pings. I now ping to BBC - Homepage at average 32 m/s. I mean, that is fairly low. So if you're willing to spend time on the phone to CSS and keep asking them to tweak it little by little while you're running ping tests and download speeds, then by all means, Sky has really good pings for value.

      Hoped this helped.

      Ok pings. (24/05/08)

      You couldn't post some speed tests could you? Even though it might say you're syncing at 1024 upload, does it upload that quick though? And could you run a ping test to BBC - Homepage Also, one last question, did you ring Sky to put you on fastpath, or email?

      Thanks!

      Oooh, your results sound tempting... I might try and email them to do that. But it might just be a one off. So unless someone else has tried aswell, I might not risk it, as mine is currently good... But can always be better!

      sky dont offer Fastpath so someone is either lying, or is about to get sacked...especially if they've also upped your upload to over 768kbps...

      if/when you ask for your cap to be removed, the CST may (should) put your upload back to what it should be
      (or you could not bother speaking to them and see how long it is before it's noticed )
