I have ADSL at the moment and I get a ping of about 42 on local servers and when I go to other countries I can get over 300. I don't want my ping to increase anymore because it would make playing on foreign servers a waste of time. I have looked through the post on Telecom VDSL that started awhile ago and I don't seem to find much about ping but I did notice when people posted comparison screenshots of their speed tests that their ping had increased. 

What usually happens to ping when on VDSL compared to ADSL?

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 



 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 



 

- you have reset your modem and router

 


 

- your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing

 

- you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap

 


 

- your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing

 


 

- you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

 



 

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 



 

- Your ISP and plan

 


 

- Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL)

 


 

- Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin)

 


 

- Your general location (or street)

 


 

- If you are rural or urban

 


 

- If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin

 


 

- If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service

 


 

- If you have done an isolation test as per the link above

 



 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 



 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 



 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

 



 

- Is your premises phone wiring impacting your broadband performance? (very technical)

 


 

- Are you receiving a substandard ULL ADSL2+ connection from your ISP?




I am the Geekzone Robot and I am here to help. I am from the Internet. I do not interact. Do not expect other replies from me.

depends on your profile, long as you stay on a DLM-1 profile, you will have a 1ms ping each way.

profiles are tiered...

DLM-1 1ms 0INP

DLM-2 8ms 0INP
DLM-4 8ms 1INP *9
DLM-6 8ms 2INP

DLM-3 16ms 0INP
DLM-5 16ms 1INP
DLM-7 16ms 2INP
DLM-8 16ms 4INP


that is latency each way.

worth having a read of the vdsl thread in snaps forum - atlest the first post if not the rest. (http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=90&topicid=105744)

Your ping should decrease - but to what extent will depend on your current interleaving settings.

Ping on VDSL seems fine to me, and I believe I am on DLM-2 not 1.

Inphinity: Ping on VDSL seems fine to me, and I believe I am on DLM-2 not 1.



ping seems a tad high for DLM1 indeed.. would have to be an 8ms profile, on the upside, thats a nice 71a line.

I'd happily trade a little of the speed for DLM-1, if it were possible and wouldn't impact stability, as there is some fairly latency-sensitive work I do, but that said, it's much the same as my ADSL2 was before, so I'm no worse off.

I think ping is increasing with VDSL by 10-20 ms average, my friend connected with VDSL2(TELECOM) now, and his ping higher by 8 ms on DLM-1 profile compare to ADSL2+ without interleaving. 8 ms is not big deal, but if you on other DLMs then you will get increase from 8 to 32 i think.


Here is my speedtest:



Connection: ADSL2+ Without Interleaving.

Ping statistics for 202.37.194.80:

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 6ms, Maximum = 8ms, Average = 6ms

C:\Users\richard>

VDSL is lower so long as you get on one of the good profiles, if I can on the end of the long cable I am on that only gets me mid 20's for the downstream than anyone should be able to really.

I think DLM-1 should be pretty much the same as ADSL without interleaving. This is mine currently on the Telecom speedtest (ISP snap)

Wow nice. Then yes, DLM-1 is good on interleaving :)

ADSL2+ Ping


Sorry about russian window, i have russian OS, but the layout the same: 

Ответ от 202.175.135.91: число байт=32 время=7мс TTL=56  

Translate =>  

Reply from 202.175.135.91: bytes=32 time=7ms TTL=56


One or two year ago, when Telecom done upgrades on broadband data caps, interleaving was switched on for my connection and i had 23-30 ms to the same website, even to the local gateway same high pings.

My ping has definitely improved.

Used to speedtest at around 40ms, now commonly 20-25ms with vdsl.

I get confused when people post this. What does it mean? Is it that if I am on DLM-1 then the ping I have now (on ADSL) will increase by 1 and if I was on DLM-8 then my current ping will increase by 16 or am I way off?

EDIT: I have never seen a screenshot with anyone on 1ms, the lowest I have seen is 11ms.

I don't get this stuff.

Thats mean ping on last mile connection, between you(your router) and DSLAM (Chorus Cabinet or Exchange). So if you pinging any host, you need to add 1+1 ms on DLM-1, 8+8 on DLMs 2 4 8 and 16+16 on DLMs 3 5 7 8. 


For example delay between nzherald.co.nz website and TELECOM ISP is 4 ms. 

On ADSL2+ Without interleaving you get 7ms

On VDSL2 with DLM-1 profile you get 7ms.

On VDSL2 with DLM-2 profile you get 23ms.
On VDSL2 with DLM-4 profile you get 23ms.
On VDSL2 with DLM-6 profile you get 23ms.

On VDSL2 with DLM-3 profile you get 39ms.
On VDSL2 with DLM-5 profile you get 39ms.
On VDSL2 with DLM-7 profile you get 39ms.
On VDSL2 with DLM-8 profile you get 39ms.


on UFB you probably get 5 ms.

your numbers are slightly off, in most cases it would be slightly lower and for DLM-1 it has a interleaving value of 1ms rather than disabled. also UFB should be purely down to distance latency for the most part. no interleavings or anything of the sort.

your explanation was pretty-much spot on though.

to put it into a more universal way, essentially your latency is LatencyToRouter + InterleavingValue + CableDelay,DistanceToServerEtc..
