      New connection - ping improve??

      Hi,

      I have just had my Sky Unlimited broadband go live today. . .I am aware that the speed slowly increases (currently at 4mb - was 14mb with TalkTalk) over the first ten days. . .but. . .will my ping times improve??

      I got pings of around 10-15ms with Talktalk and it is currently around 40-50ms with Sky. . .we live very close to the exchange , about 500m all underground cableing so the connection is generally very good.

      Thanks in advance for any info

      All the best

      Antony

      From what I've seen posted, generally the best of Sky's pings seem to be around the 30ms mark. If pings are important to you (i.e. on-line gamer) then call Sky once DLM has completed and as to be put on a 'Gamer Profile'.

      In the mean time do what you can to improve your connection, if this is possible.

      Also could you remove your email address from your profile. Lots of bots will love to pick it up.

      The best you will get is between 20-22ms to the first hop at max delays 8
      depending on interleave depth
