Looking to know what is the best IP for gaming. Am with telecom at the moment but wondering if there is a better choice as telecom seems to always have problems :waughh:

I've been gaming on Telecom/xtra for years with very high DL/UL speeds and low, stable ping. What problems do you always seem to be having?

Go over to geekzone and read the threads there on various ISPs. You'll find Telstra (not cable) has slipped a lot. Customer Service has gone downhill rapidly.


Also GPforums has a forum on ISPs also. take a look whats already been written.

I'll say this again, it *all* depends on your physical location. Changing ISP's may not make an inkling of difference.

I will however say that unless you're going with their Cable service (Not ADSL), then *never* touch TelstraClear.

What's your street address (Leave the number off if you want, or give us a neighbours address) and we'll throw it into www.telecomwholesale.co.nz/maps and let you know a bit about your connection and what sort of service you should be expecting.

Well it says im in an ADSL2+ zone. I think my bad internet only happens on the one computer, which of cause is my gaming one.

You are having problems with Gaming on one PC but otherwise the internet is ok?

Perhaps you should fill us in with a bit more background :) it may be possible to improve things on your current setup.

Wireless or wired? and what speed is the LAN connection between your PC and the Modem / switch etc.

Games dont always play nice with other uses of the net, many connections perform poorly if someone is dowloading something for example.

:lol: we used to have those s.hitty speeds with telstraclear too. my dad changed to trust power kinect last year and we get twice that speed.

Note: that ping reading is incorrect. It is almost always at 50 to 70. see, here's the results from pingtest.net (through our wpa-psk wifi network): http://www.pingtest.net/result/39239596.png

And you can see who they're wholesaling your connection off there...
