try something like google.co.nz

what do you expect you ping to be?

there are a few different profiles you could be on (and no you can not adjust or have them adjusted they are done automatically), just looks like you are not on a DLM-1 profile but more like like DLM-2 hence the increased latency

i get 24ms ping from auckland to snaps speed test in dunedin on a DLM-1 profile, add in 8ms latency for a DLM-2 profile and you have your 32-34 ping.

After the Spark Outage a few days ago my DLM profile changed to one that adds 16ms onto any ping/speedtest I do, It's kinda annoying since it has also impacted the stability of my line but there's not really anything I can do :/

unless you were constantly connecting and disconnecting it shouldn't have made a difference, one disconnection doesnt/should change your DLM profile, unless over time your line has deteriorated and the disconnect just triggered DLM to change your line to a more suitable speed and stability because you were getting heaps of errors

Jase2985: try something like google.co.nz

34ms to google.co.nz

what do you expect you ping to be? As low as possible 

there are a few different profiles you could be on (and no you can not adjust or have them adjusted they are done automatically), just looks like you are not on a DLM-1 profile but more like like DLM-2 hence the increased latency

i get 24ms ping from auckland to snaps speed test in dunedin on a DLM-1 profile, add in 8ms latency for a DLM-2 profile and you have your 32-34 ping.


So you are getting 24ms for 1500kms approx between servers. 

For me 
Ak 1500kms 48ms 
ChCh is 500kms ish I am getting 34ms
Dunedin is 200kms I am getting 38ms , Probably routed though ChCh 

Cheers

did you read anything about the different DLM profiles i mentioned? distance isnt the only thing at affects latency on VDSL, and there is nothing you can do to change it.

My profile has a 0ms delay so its 5-7ms from my house in Auckland to the Auckland speed test server, the next one up has 8ms, then 16ms delay.

see the paragraph about it here:
http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?topicid=105744

you need to find what your delay and INP are from your modem and that will tell you exactly is going on
