thanks

looks like the 'last mile' takes circa 8ms wink

edit:
8ms to cabinet, and <10 to exchange

Playing Modern Warfare 2 regularly I now don't notice any lagging at all. When compared to a 0.4Mbps Sky service, it really is incomparable. Previously, if anyone else in the house was using the Internet; messaging or whatever, you really couldn't play, but now you can throw anything at it and the gaming isn't affected at all.

I've found I'm more likely to host games based on MW2 matchmaking, but mostly only if there are British and European gamers in the party - very few games have ended because an existing host quit out - I would regularly take over as the host. Ping tests I've done have shown up excellent results - but there's still the necessary latency to get across the water to US gamers.

This shows the major benefit of FTTC to me - much more headroom to do more individual things at the same time. Only once did I actually see close to the maximum speeds on a single download - 4.5Mb/s - and iPlayer, XBox and PS3 downloads go very fast. But you're more likely see quick speeds spread across a number of services, rather than one service taking up the whole.

Very nice congrats, looking forward to when they finally 'upgrade' our exchange.


Not the exchange - the cab...


Good point wink

Sorry, I'm a lightweight PS3 MW2 player, not a hardcore COD4 MW PC player. So custom servers aren't my thing. I can trying pinging from my PC some UK COD4 servers if it helps, but I don't think that helps you, does it?

I just want to see some ping times on BT Infinity or any other FTTC provider for games like quake and counter-strike & cod4mw, eg games that have between 20 to 40ms give or take on standard ADSLx and Virgin Cable.

If you can wait until the 18th then I can give you some comparison stats. My FTTC line gets installed then.

Can then give you that vs my virgin 50mbit vs my ADSL LLU line.

Will that be BT Infinity, or Zen, or ANOther? If Zen, BT Wholesale based or LLU?
