I have a cable max 1000ms contract at the moment for the past 2 months or so.
My ping has consistently been jumping up to over 1000ms at times (mostly about 200-500ms every few seconds).
i have had people come out twice to try and fix it and was told it would be fixed at a later date by Vodafone both times.
i have reported a couple times a Vodafone Speedtest result over the phone where I can see the ping jumping from 25ms to 600ms constantly but the end result will always say 25ms so it seems there is no problem.
the most recent time I was told there was a scheduled fix for the 3rd of November.
it is currently the 6th of November and it is still the same problems.
I have lots of spare time in the house and I am living away from home and a big part of my life is being able to communicate to my friends and family via gaming. This hasn’t been possible the past couple months and I have never had this problem in my life regarding such high ping with any other internet provider.
