Higher pings?
Since yesterday my Pings have doubled from ~30 to over 60... Maybe the bad weather? Can someone else please check their pings?

Something's not right somewhere. My download & upload speed has been cut in half as well; (probably best to ignore the download on this one, JD speedtest is still giving full speed if I got multi-threaded)

RE: Higher pings?
If I told you..I'd have to kill you xD

And you won't be on this trial as its not ran by an ISP nor do I report to one as it stands.

RE: Higher pings?
I've had a few goes on SpeedTest.net tonight and my ping times have also doubled since last week. I'm now averaging between 70-80ms.

What is the theory behind this sudden drop in speed? Should we be concerned?

I'm happy to participate in more testing if it will help.

RE: Higher pings?
Has anyone officially reported this to Ask4 yet? They appear to be awful quiet in here at the moment.

I have just reported the issue to support@ask4.com however I am going away for the weekend. I will try and update if I get a response during the weekend.

RE: Higher pings?
My pings have also increased - I use Thinkbroadbands monitor and there was a noticeable change on Wednesday:

http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share...-2012.html

I reported it to Ask4 on Wednesday and they originally said it was congestion - strange since I was at work at the time and no one was home. I ran some speedtests and tracerts on Wednesday night and Thursday and these are significantly higher:

The first 'hop' used to be 18ms.

I am now awaiting a response from them but it is interesting to know that others are also experiencing this problem as I thought it was just me.
