In looking for the reason for a much higher ping rate than normal I discovered that moving to BT max, up to 8Mb, involved among other things a raising of the ping rate to help the stability of the higher rate connection

My ISP told me that this was to some extent a trade off in return for the stability of the higher speed on a long line

I've been happy to live with it in return for a 6 times increase in line speed but I agree that it could be difficult with games

If you have had an increase inspeed using this system it may be worth contacing your ISP

I am in the process with BT since tuesday i think up to 8mb if poss still awating litariture

Spoke to BT was advised there is nothing they can do to reduce the ping and advised to contact game vendor which i feel is irrelevant as game works fine until playing a multiplaer game via diff servers
