Thread: Only people in wick pls

  1. #1

    Default Only people in wick pls

    Hi just wondering if some peeps from wick can do some ping tests pls and post them here.
    I used to get 24ms untill 2 months ago since then i get 60-80 i was with plusnet and decided to go to another isp,thinking that would fix the ping problems but no its the same.Which makes me think it could be the exchange.So if some peeps could do ping test for me it would be great thx, if some dont know how to do it all you do is,click start then run type in cmd and press enter, you should then see comand prompt type ping www.jolt.co.uk and post the results here.

    I have had exactly the same thing happen two me about to months ago I was gettng 35 now its between 60 and 70 I have tried my ISP they say they have checked everything out even turned off interleaving and set my router up for port forwarding but all to no avail.

    My next port of call was to change ISP but from what you are saying this will be no use!!

    My ISP is plusnet as well!!

    Me too I'm with BT and roughly the same time mine went fron and average ping of 42-45 went to an average of 80-90 with mad surges every so often to 300-400.



    It was pinging at 88ms so its gone down some. Have you done a Trace route yet ?.

    For on-line gaming always pick a server that is close ie UK or Europe.
    Check your micro-filters and cables. Then have fun contacting your provider if its BT. Make sure you have checked everything before bt come out because if they are called out and find the fault is yours then expect a bill of 100 or more.

    I would suggest you post in the Tech section as there's a lot of folks there that could help you.


    Just out of curiosity when the internet went down a few weeks back when it came back on did anyones ping go back to normal for a few days??? mine did.

    Not too sure about when the telephone line went down as I never noticed and it didnt affect everyone so maybe not me. I have done a trace route and sent it to my ISP who confirmed everything was OK!

    To improve your ping try getting your ISP to turn off interleaving as this will reduce it hopefully by approx 10ms although it may make your connection a little less stable. You can also use portforwarding on your router see www.portforwarding.com for further info.

    Lowish ping but also low download speed:

    I'm with a small/medium ISP thats goes via the Enta and Cogent upstream network. I'm 358 metres (straight line distance) from the Exchange.

    My results are:

    Me->VPS = 61ms
    Me->Google = 68ms
    Me->Thinkbroadband = 64ms
    Me->Speedtest.net = 74ms
    Me->NTP pool = 67ms
    Me->DNS Server = 63ms

    Those are averaged with each ping left running for about 5 minutes.

    It might be worth doing a trace route then pinging every hop, try to isolated the problem. I mean most ISPs unless the ping is obscenely high aren't really going to do anything; they may do some of their own tests but that'll be it. Failing that:

    How many people use your router?
    Is it wireless, if so whats the security like?
    Have you installed anything recently?
    Tested from a different PC or device?

    Hmm it seems to me that it could be the exchange which is the problem and not the isp after all.And the only way bt will do something about it if they get at least 100 complaints about the problem.
