      Not 100% percent sure but it looks like your delays is set at 16 maybe for stability.

      It would be possible to change some settings

      if there are no erros they could change the max delays to 8ms or ask for a gamer profile same thing

      not sure if the uberGT firmware allows you to change it yourself
      DNS pre fetching already ticked not sure what uberGT firmware is?

      I would also move over to use OpenDNS or GoogleDNS as the Sky one was terrible when I was with Sky, mind you o2's DNS was just as bad.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      googles DNS are preferred 8.8.8.8 alternative 8.8.4.4

      UberGT firmware would replace the sky firmware and enable you to reconfigure your own connect the same as CST can do. Haven't used it so can't tell you the exact settings you can change.

      Make sure that you got chrome 10 as its faster than ever before

      They have moved you off Fast path but left you on ADSL2. I would ask them to put your line on G.DMT, it may give you a more stable speed.

      G.DMT is basically plain ADSL. Whether who you call will know what it is, depends on what agent you get. What you can try is asking to be put through to the Customer Solutions Team as you would like your ping reduced. When you get there tell them you are having stability problems with your gaming, could they put your line on G.DMT to see if it will be more stable. If you get a decent one, they will be able to change your line and reduce your ping at the same time.

      It should not make your connection worse unless you are unlucky enough to get a ham fisted idiot, most of CST are pretty good.
