How to make latency speeds faster???

I have a terrible ping rate (150Mbps), and I would like to know if I could make it better. I plan on calling tech support later on this afternoon, but I would like to avoid that if I can find a solution. Thanks!

One thing you can do to lower your ping rate is to not use a wireless connection.  If your connection is experiencing errors, getting rid of them can also lower your latency.  Finally, connecting to a server close to you is the best way to lower latency.  I know that this is not always feasible.

Hi chaseburleson,

 

Another thing you can do is run a tracert to the site you are trying to ping. With a tracert, it will give a step by step route and how long it takes to get from one router to another. This will give you a general idea of where the latency is coming from.
