Do you get an awfull ping on every server?

some servers run higher than others, i 50 ping on uk servers but higher on others, check the server. If not, sometimes the isp may be running slow, who are you with?

I have 512k broadband and I am with blueyonder. The location of a server makes all the difference. UK servers are normally always faster than those based abroad. If your ping is rubbish on a particular server the best idea is to find another server. Try to stick to ones based in the UK as you will generally get a far better ping on them.

It also depends on the size of the server and its power/performance

If you sign into someones own dedicated server it might be a slow runner.

What resolution and graphic detail are you set at? I think also forced models can help but don't think it would solely be the problem.

Can I ask why u made a new connection?
