      Can I sacrifice some speed for better ping

      Can I sacrifice some speed for better ping? At the minute DLM is running on my like and I'm syncing at 79000kbps sky said I would get around 57mbps and my ping is 28ms, before my upgrade on 40/10 it was around 15ms and I would like to get close to that can sky lower my speed to give me a better ping ie gaming mode?

      Give DLM a chance to finish and you should find your ping is a fair bit lower*. If not, call Sky and see if they can get it adjusted.

      * test it with a ping command to a major site e.g. BBC, co uk not a speedtest/game site which may not give accurate results. Wireless will also give a high ping - but I expect you know that.
