Hi guys did a quick search but couldnt find anything about this. I've just swapped to sky from orange, with orange i had a 2 meg line with the latency on speedtester.net being between 45-55 approx, now when i test with sky the ping has gone upto 125+ sometimes. So i'm just wondering if this is normal for sky when the line is first activated and if it'll improve. Only reason i'm asking is i'm quite an addict at online gaming.

Just tell them you need your Max Delays put to 8.
