as promised, here's the graph over 22 hours, the big spike at the start might have been caused by APB: Reloaded freezing frequently, but through general use it seems to be a steady connection

That does look a little bit spikey - are you using your connection constantly from 10:00 to 23:30 (approx)? Even overnight it looks a bit less stable than I'd like but not necessarily cause for concern.

Does the firebrick graph show more serious spikes? They ping more frequently than what the top graph on f8lure does..

hello again, does anyone have any idea what's causing this? the answer will most likely decide what ISP i'll go with in my new place, provided it isn't a UK-wide issue

Getting off of the cable network even if just a reasonable speed ADSL2+ connection could bring you better stability ping wise - that's if the instability is down to the connection.

ping isn't the problem, netcode hooha is.. maybe it's just the games after all, but it's so consistent it makes me feel like there's something on my end just killing it

what's fibre like though? i was thinking of going with plusnet fibre@38/9 but there's a large upfront cost and around a month of waiting before it's installed and ready to use so i'm on the edge.. just waiting to pinpoint an ISP with the least chance of having these issues

Well if its the games netcode then no connection will help.

Given the millions with connections your speed and faster I'd expect gaming forums to be a lot more awash with issues.
