Re: Your Ping To EA

Just done a quick trace route on this and I am getting 142ms, however this is not a BT issue......

 

The ping on BT's network is in the region of 15-25ms... Pretty decent.

 

The traceroute shows www.ea.com as hosted in the USA, therefore a ping of 140+ is not too shabby. Is there a UK hosted EA site you could use instead, or lobby EA to set up UK based servers.

Trace complete.

 

BT's network ends at hop 9 where the ping is a very good 21ms

As you can see at hop 12/13 the route goes over to the US, so this is definitely an EA issue.

Re: Your Ping To EA

I've contacted EA many times and they put the blame on BT. I replied a few days ago and told them enough was enough and I am contacting Watchdog and anyone else who will listen because their servers are absolutely horrendous.
