Is there anything I can do to lower my ping?Sergeant said:cable internet = broadband
If you're talking download or upload speeds, not much you can do there. Those are limited by your ISP, based on which service you pay for. Right now, I have Charter's highest download speed of 2 mb.
You can get pages to load faster by not loading graphics, sounds or animations. Those all take up the most bandwidth. Granted, your surfing experience will be crippled, leaving you with only static html but you're pages will load like freshly waxed lightning.
My cable has actually been clocked faster than that.Corneo said:Shell out the big bucks and get a T1.
My ping right now in a counterstrike server is... around 35, but it jumps to 40 then down to 28 then 36 then 49, you get the idea.mysnistaken said:stop running programs in the background...or downloading..not much else you can do...whats it at right now?
