Has anyone with these new plans noticed much difference in ping on games? I went down from 175ms on ADSL2 to 135ms on (200mb down/20mb up). Just wondering if the upgrade will make any difference?

PIR will not affect "ping" times.

Different plans/speed tiers may be hosted off different BNGs assigned different IP ranges which have different routing.

Yeah I've got it.


I can do some traceroutes for you if you have some addresses in particular you would like to be checked out? 


But this is all likely to be different from ISP and locations in NZ
