have ping times for gaming improved?

I only recently signed up for the 128k evening/weekend package.

I find the ping times atrocious and am thinking of cancelling unless there are any definite dates as to when things might improve.

What is the communities general experience of gaming ping times?

I also have a a BT SurfAnytime account (FRIACO 0808 number - 64k only) and I find the ping times for playing games much smoother and much faster so it's not my kit.

I keep hearign rumours (on other 128k ISP forums) of some FRIACO 128k service - is this fact or fiction?

It seems that many of the ISPs who offer un-metered 128k services seem to have problems - I was with SAT for a while but they kept having loads of problems with NTL and Energis.

Should I hold out for a better service or just stick with good old BT and 64k?

well i must say that ping times for me are good with Quick (around 70 in dos to a good game server)
they did get bad at one time but David at Quick sorted this out and all is well.

quick is a verry good service for the money so my advice is give Quick a go and i dont think you will be dissapointed. :)
