    Achieving best possible latency/ping

    I'm overwhelmed with all the information on the forums so not sure where to start. I'll try my best to be thorough.

    About two weeks ago we installed AT&T High Speed Dsl because of some deal with our direct tv. Generally I'm pinging 66-100(bad registry) to Chicago servers where on my old ISP provider I would get 30-40. So I dediced to upgrade our dsl package from 1.5 megs down to 3 megs. I still recieved the same latency so I dediced to go up 6 megs down with still the same latency. It appears that I've been getting the same upload of around 800-968~ kbs without and getting minimal change in ping to all game servers. I don't care too much for my download rate and seems a waste to pay the extra $20 with same upload.
    So I'm wondering is there any way I could fix this or if my ISP could do anything about it. I believe the upload I recieve isn't suppose to happen, but I figured upgrading my dsl would in turn reduce latency. For now I have to stick with this ISP. If there's other info I need to provide I'll do so, but at the moment unsure of what steps to take.
    Not sure if this is even fixable, however any insight would be appreciated

    i dotn think its fixxable, also dosnt dsl have the best pings anyways. the download speed wont help your ping at all, ping is round trip time. not download time.

    66-100 isnt somethign an ISP would consider bad, DSL has a set in time I think so it might get better after a month or so.

    Also with a new ISP things will be routed differently and so some servers may have a few more hops and some others a few less.

    Ya, how long have you been dealing with it ? You sure you're virus/spyware free? Anything downloading/updating while you're online.


    I make absolutely certain I have only minimal services running while gaming.
