Orange broadband for Online gaming


[link to this post]
 
Hey guys am currently with O2 but recently having issues with high pings and throttling. My contract runs out in 2 weeks and I was looking at getting orange unlimited.
As a customer I can get both landline and BB for £17.55 for 12 months.
I will be mainly using it for online gaming and some moderate downloading.
Can anyone with orange please share their thoughts on the service and if they do any traffic management during peak hours as this will be the time I will be doing most of my online gaming.

You either have a problem with your line or internal wiring
You are on ADSL2, not ADSL2+ and should be getting a much higher sync than that, not to mention of very high number of resyns you've had

Have a read of the info here

Hi, your exchange having 21CN WBC with Orange you should get about 10,000 kbps bandwidth or more. I cannot comment on the online gaming experience but pings are usually low on 21CN WBC.

Your Line stats

What;s the point? It's the same platform as O2 LLU. OP obviously has a faulty line/wiring that won't change on any move.

Orange's WBC (run by BTw) DLM will probably put you on Fast Path, as it does for me, which is good for gaming latency.

Network Management Policy

But there is something wrong with your line. You should be on ADSL2+ G992.5 and getting about 12 Meg Sync. This won't change by switching ISPs.

Why are you running with a NM of 10? I'm on 3 dB. It is taking at least 2 Meg off your speed.

Did you read the OP's post? He has an issue with O2's traffic management. There isn't any traffic management @ Be*.
