Hi guys, around a year ago I switched from ADSL to a cable ISP and from the time I switched until now my pings shot up to, at least what I would consider, bizarrely high levels. The thing is my connection isn't erratic or do I receive lag spikes or anything of that nature but instead I'm at a constant high ping 100% of the time.
For example, if I were to play a round of counter-strike with friends who live in same city as myself who have a different internet type, either fibreop or adsl, when we find a mutual server to join they would normally have pings of ~35-50 on average while mine level out between ~115-130 and most of the times I usually have the highest ping on the server. Most other games I'm in the same boat regardless of server location.
From my understanding cable internet generally has higher pings than ADSL or Fibreop however I'm unsure if the difference should be to the extent I'm experiencing it.
Here are the results of a speedtest I just ran: Speedtest.net by Ookla - My Results
I'm definitely not well versed in the nuances of internet providers, but is this kind of ping normal? The host server I used for the speedtest was located in my city and essentially any other server just yields higher pings. Any suggestions on how I could remedy this issue or detect if there are any issues with my modem, hardware etc.. or is this is just normal behavior for cable internet?
Thanks in advance
Relevant information Modem is a HITRON CGN3ACSMR and I'm directly plugged in via ethernet cable. ISP is Rogers
