To those of you that are internet savy, what is considered a reasonable "PING" for 256k broadband? My main concern is with online gaming. The best ping I can achieve is about 150, even for perth based servers (I am in perth with a perth isp). It seems to me that this is no better than dialup. I have done a speed test (zdnet I think) and that checks out okay. I have spoken to the ISP several times and the latest conversation was they where going to follow it up with there wholesaler. I am at the point of contemplating changing providers but it is such a hassle what with downtime and the change of email address.
As far as I can tell friends on 256k plans achieve pings of under 50. Does this sound reasonable or am I expecting to much? The ISP told me when I first enquired that it was showing "good" results when tested on there end. (presumably better than 150ms).
Thanx in advance.
