      Need Help :S

      We just switched over to sky broadband...

      We're currently in the 10 day testing about 7 or 8 days in, usually the download speed is about 3.5 and the upload is about 0.50, and the ping about 70ms

      But i just did one now and the download was 6.7, upload 0.8, ping 91

      Now this is very good apart from the ping, will my connection be like that after the 10 day period or are they just trying a higher connection on a one-off thing.

      Also the ping is quite high for playing on the playstation 3 online, do you think it will be lower?

      Ignore the ping on that site, it is not a very acurate benchmark.

      You would be better doing a ping from the command prompt.
