      Sky Max - Tier 3, Max Delays set at 8

      This was one of the reply’s to a Thread I posted about Sky Max - Tier 3, Max Delays set at 8 in another Forum - “reducing the interleave depth might mean you see more packet loss. In some cases, you'll see zero difference (other than the reduction in latency)”. So how much benefit did peep’s get and how much forum member’s ping went down, would be interested to know.
      MY gaming ping has went up, surely faster connection = lower ping and my adsl line in the house is ok.

      Sky Max
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8187 kbps 767 kbps
      Line Attenuation 39.5 db 21.1 db
      Noise Margin 8.0 db 15.9 db
      Ping now at 73 Battlefied 2142.

      Noise Margin 11.00db 15.5db
      Ping was at 56 Battlefied 2142.

      Both were tested in the same sever.

      That is not the case, if it were, users with a very high speed connection would have too much advantage.
      Have you asked for your delay to be reduced? Most who have, report an improvement.
