Just got uverse today is this normal?

I just got uverse today 12 down 1.5 up the speed seems fine but the ping seems a little high.Using speedtest i checked the next town which is only 50 miles away and my ping is 41ms? Does that sound normal?

Re: Just got uverse today is this normal?

"The next town" could be reached by going across the state and coming back.

 

If you're using the VDSL2 protocol (RG is a 2WIRE 3600, 3800 or 3801), then there is an inherent additional 10-15 ms in ping due to the interleaving of data between packets (which improves reliability of data transmission), so if you're used to a 26 to 31 ms ping time to the host you're testing against, then I'd say your results are normal.

I live near the IL/WI state line, and have hte same service as you.  If I test with a server in Chicago I get download rates aroune 11.82 Mbps, and uploads around 1.45 Mbps with a ping time around 40 msec.  If I test with a server about 200 miles away in/near MN, I get download speeds of 11.87Mbps, uploads around 1.48 Mbps, and pings around 32 msec.  The server can make a difference.
