Yesterday, i was having ping problems, this has since been resolved but it made me wonder what kind of ping everyone else gets?

Paste your pings below :) , test telecom.co.nz, this is what i used

From my Netscreen 5GT at home, through our Dynlink Modem (in half-bridge mode) out our TelstraClear ADSL2+ connection. Interleaving turned on.

Pretty happy with a 31ms average.




I hate you.

c71931f: Average = 33ms. Dunno if that's good or bad ...

That's pretty good, yup.
Who's your ISP?

For ADSL:

With interleaving turned off, you can get around 9ms to an NZ server.

With interleaving on at full, around 55ms is normal for an NZ sever.

International pings will obviously be higher.

Teathered through my Android phone, it doesn't seem to like the cold + the rain here :( (usually get 4bars of 3G Signal, only got 1 at the moment)

Wow! I knew there was a difference but not that much! I heard interleaving is for error correction, and my line is rather bad (42.0 dB down / 25.0 dB up). If I had it turned off would it decrease speeds or anything?

Make sure you Ctrl-C those pings rather than Ctrl-Z otherwise it'll leave it to be resumed later.

If you use Ctrl-C you'll get a nice summary at the end aswell since its ending.

25ms here.

I would have to have my connection idle to do it properly, which is very rare when I am at the computer, and it is free off peak at the moment,

This is it with my line "maxed out" as much as slingshots lameness will allow for:

Wow everyone... You should all understand that there are several major contributors to the observed latency when you ping telecom.co.nz and the results will vary hugely while possibly not indicating anything bad...

1) telecom.co.nz is located in Auckland. if you ping from Auckland (with interleaving off) would can expect 8-12ms ping times assuming everything else is good. If you're in Christchurch for example, it will be much more - possibly over 30ms with interleaving off.

2) Interleaving. The default interleaving for most customers adds about 30ms of latency so even in Auckland you may get (say) 42ms and this could still be considered a perfect connection.

3) Are you on a wireless router? wireless can (but won't always) introduce variability due to magic goblins.

4) Is your line being heavily used? If you are downloading at line speed, or if your upstream is saturated, you will get massive ping variability. Even if you're not downloading at maxing out your line, you may get a small increase in latency and variability.

5) Finally, there's a chance there is is congestion somewhere on the network, or even at the test server (www.telecom.co.nz isn't ever genuinely congested as far as I am aware though)...

The point is that most connections can't be compared without a bit more info being shared about the location, time, line details etc involved in the test.

Cheers - N
