Pings to your own town are probably slower than other pings, as you will head down to the main Sky connection point, and then back across whatever network links back to the town.

Try a tracert www.thinkbroadband.com and see where the latency is occuring

Went to the flat this morning as I've been away for a few days, the connection light was flashing orange like crazy frown. The cable was attached via a microfilter to standard BT faceplate.

However as I've recently purchased a new broadband faceplate laugh I fit it and reconnected the broadband cable. The light is now stable green, cannot check speeds until tomorrow. Will this have a negative effect on my broadband connection?

During testing on my line, each change took at least 24 hours and occurred @ about 02:30.
