Slow ping

  jimmer409® 05:38 23 Jun 2005

Morning all, recently upgraded to 2m by BT, since than my speed testing seems to return slower ping times that when using 1m?? Would some using 1m and 2m please ping and let me know the time, help greatly appreciated.

thanks so far, just pinged myself, returned 224ms, seems strange that the 2m ping is slower than 1m, please note i'm connecting via 801.1b, is this the problem or am i concerned about nothing?

I don't know if pinging a server is the best way to test connection speed. I would have thought it was better to test that via one of the on-line tools offered by various sites.
