Not a huge issue but I was wondering what other BigPipe VDSL users were getting in the ping department?

My connection is 3 days old now and so far I've been extemely pleased with it. On day 1 and 2 I was getting an incredible 11-12 ping on all the tests I did on speedtest.net and anywhere from 25-35 ping on CS:GO servers.

However, starting Friday night I was getting 29-42 on speed tests and 45-70 on CS:GO servers. I understand weekends see heavier traffic so can I expect <20 ping come monday-thursday and >30 during the weekends or is there something else going on here?

I had some torrents running on the first or second day but not since. Is it possible my connection has been throttled due to this usage? Again I completely understand torrent traffic being given lower priority for other traffic, it's only fair, but that shouldn't mean my entire connection is throttled for the duration of service.

I've also had my modem turned off at night to keep my room free of extra lighting so it's not like it doesn't get restarted or overheated.

The difference between 10 and 40 ping is fairly negligible for most usage but it can certainly make a difference in competitive gaming. I don't see why else it would change from something so low.

What does the router show for you latency on the connection. Could be DLM moving you around a bit.

you have an 8ms delay which should give you about a 20-25ms ping to the speed test server

no you cant do anything to change that

DLM-2.
Delay (msec): 8

Ohh, BTW. VDSL connections will always start on DLM-1. If its bad they will move to DLM-2 etc...

Thanks.
What constitutes a bad connection? It was running hella fine imo. 26 down 9ish up, only slightly worse than it is currently but it had that magic ping that I fell in love with. Oh well

As others have said, it's most likely DLM moving you around, and there isn't a whole lot that can be done about it.
A master filter may help if you don't already have one. (by reducing errors on your line, giving you a better chance of moving up to DLM 1 when it next re-syncs) We can organise one via Chorus for $199,  or you could get someone like coffeebaron on geekzone to do it, likely for less than that price. (I would recommend getting coffee baron TBH)

Just to clarify one other thing from the OP - we don't do any shaping or prioritising of traffic, so you won't be throttled regardless of how much data you use or how many Linux distros you download.
