Ping speeds on BT

Im thinking of joining the 16 meg package of sky as the exchange here is LLU to sky "kilmarnock" exchange what sort of pings do any of you get while gaming in FPS like counterstrike, tf2 and other online games?

i had a lengthy talk with a Sky techy today and he told me, apart from the fup they are good, and apparently on the biggest sky package the fup is set to about 200 gig a month?..

contention of 33:1
Up to 16Meg DL
Up to 768 UP
Dynamic IP
12 Month contract for £10 a month ( as im a sky customer)
No throttling, no port blocking P2P is fine. no trafic shaping?
is this all true?
the only thing he did say is FPS games get a higher ping than some people desire.. so what sort of pings do people on sky get?

cheers for any info.. still awaiting my Bulshite Telecom response to my contract GRRRRRR:crap:

ping (to clarity.jolt.co.uk) will be high (50-70ms) until you ask Sky to have your Interleave max delay reduced to 8ms which will take a couple of days and can be sorted by email instead of the phone..

My ping is.. (from Glasgow)

C:\>ping clarity.jolt.co.uk
