Good for Gamers?

Hello,

I am currently considering moving to Aquiss from Pipex and was wondering if people who are currently with Aquiss are happy with their ping/connection?

Hi `Triad-X,

Can you provide some IPs of servers you play, which should give me the chance give you some trace/ping results.

I am a gamer myself (wow, wc3, cs, bf2142, supreme commander - generally anything fun) and I'm with aquiss and its perfect. I get 16-20 pings to uk servers in counterstrike. I host warcraft 3 and supreme commander beta and have never really found that I have had bad routing or pings to any 1 in europe.

If you provide a few IP addresses of servers I will happily do them too.

kk, I moved to Aquiss almost 2 months ago.

It's been pretty decent so far.

Good pings on all games with the exception of 2 days in WoW...for some reason, was pretty spikey.

Nice download speeds and I generally don't touch the Max30 bandwidth allocation.

I do however, get the occasional loss of ADSL sync...about 2-3 times a day when on WoW.

Part from this, for what I'm paying in comparison to Pipex, t'is pretty lovely.

I was with Pipex before Fast4 and before that AOL (I must have done something very bad in a previous life), and anything has got to better than Pipex after all they put the hassel back in the hoff, even fast4 were better than them, just.

Also just to give me a rough idea of the pings a gamer like myself could get could someone please do a ping on this ip

193.47.83.177:28937

Thanks,

Hey yo!

Long time since I posted.

Am still happy with Aquiss...and when problems arrive, customer support is always happy to help solve my problem.

All I can hope for is my exchange to be better to exceed 4.5Mb connection!
