      Yeah, don't know how you're pinging BBC.

      Anyway, if you're concerned about high pings for online gaming or console gaming then give Sky a call, get onto CST and ask for your max delays to be set to 8.

      However, at the minute they look fine to me.

      I don't think you can ping a home page, only a server. Try it with Skyuser -

      C:\Users\Tom>ping skyuser.co.uk

      Now try pinging a page-

      C:\Users\Tom>ping skyuser.co.uk/

      Ping request could not find host skyuser.co.uk/. Please check the name and try a
      gain.

      Re: bad pings

      can do it with google...

      C:\Users\>ping Google

      Pinging google.navigation.opendns.com [208.69.34.231] with 32 bytes of data:

      although that does go through OpenDNS...at work we could also ping the bbc by URL until recently...
