Should my ping be this high

Hey guys, should my ping be this high?

 

http://www.speedtest.net/result/2030212356.png

 

It can go up to as much as 38 to maybe 42ms sometimes, particularly in the evenings.

 

Thoughts?

Can you try pinging the bbc website and post the results?

Re: Should my ping be this high

I get pings like that from speedtest.net; also got similar on BE, though maybe a tad lower. My bbc ping is around 20ms (was around 19ms on BE). Probably not an issue at all unless you are an extreme gamer.

Re: Should my ping be this high

MadGamer1988,

Those ping are not too bad as the 28ms average is to and from the server,so your one way ping is about 14ms average.

For gaming,as long as you have a stable connection and do not get discoed it looks fine.

But I quess a ping below 15ms would be better.

It can also depend on distance to the server [game server] as about 104ms round trip to a US server would be ok as long as you stay connected.

I run game servers and some of the guys joining it sometimes show pings of about 150ms but as others on the server can also get quite high pings,it evens it`s self out as long as they all stay connected.

Obviously ping is important,but packet loss is what you don`t want.And you are not losing packets.

Re: Should my ping be this high

Mine pings average anything between 22-29 at the moment, depending on where i'm pinging etc. In my honesty opinion, anything sub 30 should be fine for gaming, i don't really have any issues whilst gaming online.

Re: Should my ping be this high

I guess mileage may vary. My pings are pretty low by comparison.

I'm Wired to my HomeHub not Wireless BTW.
