I decided to see if could reduce my latency using a VPN. My lowest available ping is 60 to Virginia and I would consider eliminating 15-20 milliseconds to be a huge success. Likewise, lowering the latency on my worse servers (Texas, Illinois, California, Washington, ...) would help quite a bit. So far there is nothing good to report. The first VPN service I tried is HideMyAss and it seems to have only doubled my latency. The second service I tried is Overplay and I can't seem to connect to QuakeLive while it is enabled. The error I receive is "XMPP Connection Failure". If anybody can shed light on this I would appreciate it.
