    Why Has My Ping Improve Drastically?

    Not only I but many others as well. For around 2 years my ping was around 45-50 and now I have a ping of 19.

    I'm not worried. It's called curiosity. If I was the only one to have experienced greater than 50% reduction in their ping then I'd probably just say that my cable service improved. But it wasn't just I who had experienced this drastic reduction in ping.

    You can ask your ISP if they changed their peering agreements or something. But all of that stuff is pretty chaotic... good luck.

    Not for all players. For me im getting 60 - 70 ping making the game a little bit unplayable (lg). it was 30 - 40 but i see people getting better ping and me getting worse. Well ill still play but it kinda sucks if all the servers i join is over 65 - 100 ping

    Yeah I am amazed that I'm constantly getting 17-19 ping when for the last two years I've been getting 50. My cable service did not change so I'm curious as to what had happened here. I'm really enjoying this low ping. People who had already had low ping in the past are even lower now. I used to get 100 ping in TX and not it's cut to 60.

    A ping range of 39ms to 49ms from Vancouver to Seattle is what I get, as well. I've never seen it lower. I've heard some gamers online claim that you'll get lower and more stable pings if you use Telus (DSL) vs Shaw (cable), but I've never been a Telus customer so I can't verify that.
