ping times?

ping times?

I recently added AT&T Uverse for internet, but I still have TW internet connected so I can compare.  With TW, I can get ping times around 9ms, but with Uverse I'm seeing 45ms.  Is there any way to decrease the ping times?

Re: ping times?

Uverse uses interleaved, will not approach those pings unless on FTTP.

Re: ping times?

U-verse VDSL ping times will be 10 to 15 ms higher than otherwise due to the interleaving used to increase error correction capabilities.


However, 45 ms vs 9 ms is more than that; traffic could be taking a less than optimum route from your home to the server.  You could do tracert's both ways to see what is happening.  While it could be the TW just has a more attractive peering arrangement for this connection than AT&T does, if there's an obvious problem you can ask AT&T to look at it.


Post your tracert's if you'd like.
