    Default The Ping from the Singapore servers is too high.

    Hey, I live in Bangalore and have been using BSNL for quite a long time. I have recently started playing CSGO online (about 5 months). The ping that i have been getting since December 2014 end has never been below 200+. When I play in my hostel at Manipal, my ping is <50ms. Could someone please tell me what is going on? My friend who I play with has never gotten ping higher than 60ms but he uses airtel. So is this an ISP problem? All the threads i read here never really had a conclusion. So could someone help me out? I played yesterday and my ping was over 300ms hitting 450ms at times.

    Thanks a lot.

    Ping (Latency) depends on how your ISP routes their traffic. Some companies have done a very good job like Reliance, Airtel and Tata communications and may be a couple more. The problem with BSNL is more at the local level then anything else. Their local level servers are bombarded with torrent traffic and it is no more suitable for gamers.

    For gaming go with an ISP that does not have any unlimited plans and also check latency at some friends place or something before you get a new connection. One better option I can suggest is to wait until Reliance Jio 4G is launched as their connections will have good latency almost at par with wired connections and the prices will be lower too.

    Yeah I have been struggling with the ping for quite sometime, finally an answer. Thanks a lot
    I have checked around with my friends who have BSNL and their latency is horrible too.
    Also does the download speed matter when it comes to having better ping?

    Ping is the time it takes to communicate with a remote server. For example if you see a ping of 60ms it means it takes 60 mili seconds for reaching the remote server and getting a reply.

    Download speed or bandwidth is the amount of data that can be pushed within a set time frame. Higher the bandwidth more the amount of data that can be transferred per second.


    Does bandwidth (download speed) matter when it comes to latency (ping)

    The one word answer would be : NO

    The problem will occur when you would need to send a lot of data at once and thats when a que will be formed which will increase your latency (ping). Compare it to a road that has too much traffic and you would see every car will slow down but when the road is empty and you only want to send one car then it can go full throttle without any traffic jams.

    I hope this explains it. Please do not hesitate to ask more questions
