Re: Interleaving switched off


[re: RandomJointer] [link to this post]
 
Hello,

I just phoned BT technical support and after a lot of nonsense I managed to get the person I was talking to send a request to get interleaving turned off, he said it would take up to 48 hours... I also read that they say they are going to do this but rarely do, so I was wondering if it would be possible for one of the BT people on here to help me out and make sure that they actually have sent a request, as I could really do without the stress of having to wait in a queue for hours on end only to be told the same thing...

My ping used to sit at around 30ms while gaming, however, ever since interleaving was put on it has gone up to about 70 ms, with a latency averaging about 110/120.

Who can I talk to about this, and what details do you need to?

Thanks for any help,

Sam

I've just read through this whole thread and really have no idea what anyone is talking about.!
I've been 'interleaved' since day one about 8 years ago.
Loads of people are asking for it to be turned off, but why? What is the benefit?
I've seen talk of pings. I've constantly had a 90+ms ping in games and just thought I'm getting that because I live that far away from the exchange.
And what is latency? I thought it was the same as ping.

Latency is the ping time,

The benefit of Interleaving switched off is faster pings, particularly for playing games. That's why it is called "Fast Path". Users with it off typically get 20-30 ms pings. The downside is it is less stable and more error prone because interleaving self-corrects many errors.
