I have FTTC approx 50/10. Every test available shows an average ping between 7-15ms. According to the monitor, I have almost constant latency spikes between 80-140ms. The buffer bloat results seem to yo-yo accordingly.
I have had constant issues with shots registering in online games for years and believe this to be the reason. I have some sort of [smart/adaptive?] QOS enabled on my relatively expensive ASUS router/modem. The model number escapes me just now. Anyway, Iím hoping that eliminates buffer bloat on my end.
So I guess my question is, where would the slow down be more likely to be occurring, Plusnet, or my local exchange? The latter being 3 miles away in a heavily built up area.
If anybody could post an image of the monitor with a [real world] example of stable latency, that would help me manage my expectations while recording my own over the next few weeks.
