Slow ping

  Michael Kelly 16:43 21 Jan 2007


I regularly use my broadband connection (8mb Tiscali) to play Xbox 360 on live.

However, it seems I have a very poor ping which results in poor connection to other players.

I have noticed that on my computer, ping times can be anything up to 500ms to connect to American servers. I can achieve ping times of 70ms when connecting to London servers.

It really doesn't matter what my bandwidth speed is, pings are always slow. Speeds do vary a lot though; from 300kbit/s to 6500kbit/s

Could anyone inform me of any way I could remedy this problem as I don't believe 8mb broadband should perform this way.
