Incredibly low pings, will this change when I disconnect tomorrow?

I got my service activated two days ago, and I've never seen pings so low!

 

5288582922

5288589145

5288592883

5288600186

 

Consider that when I lived in north west London, and lived only a few miles from the London servers, I was getting pings of 28ms, and now I live in rural Northamptonshire I'm getting pings of 8ms to the same servers (over wireless with a repeater bridge). This seems incredible, especially getting <5ms from servers that are 30 miles away in Leicester and Peterborough, and as far away as Nottingham - it's unheard of!

 

I'm having a NTE5 plate fitted tomorrow with a new BT VDSL faceplate. Would the prolonged disconnection cause my line to be put on to some sort of interleaving, and increase my pings drastically (as happened in my old house in London)?

 

Is it worth just cancelling the work so there are no disconnections, and the line can settle?

One disconnect won't make a jot of difference.

I would not fight against DLM really 😄

 

Just let the connection seetle for about a week. If you really need to disconnect it, switch off then router and wait about 30 mins then power it on, it won't upset DLM.

 

Speedtests pings don't matter. I am getting pings as high as 15-20ms on speedtest even to my local server. The only server I get low ping to is London which is 7ms. Post tracert to bbc.co.uk

 

Here is mine.
