High ping to all servers

This time i'm not sure what the issue is but I have a high ping to all servers I ping or tracert to.

 

For an example, here's one to the BBC site.

 

Tracing route to bbc.co.uk [212.58.244.20]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1     2 ms     3 ms     2 ms  BTHUB5 [192.168.1.254]

 15    47 ms    48 ms    47 ms  fmt-vip71.telhc.bbc.co.uk [212.58.244.20]

Trace complete.

 Any ideas what the problem is?

Re: High ping to all servers

Is that traceroute done over a wired connection or wireless?

Do you have a Homehub 5?

I am doing it over wireless and I do have the HH5.

Re: High ping to all servers

It's almost pointless doing ping tests over a wireless connection as wireless interference can never be ruled out.

Are you using a 5GHz connection as that is far less prone to interference than 2.4GHz? Wireless-AC is even better.

But nothing is better than a wired connection for reducing latency.
