Does a server with lower pings use less bandwidth?

I am running 5 servers and just decided to cut the pings down on all of them , since alot of players were connecting with 180+ pings and i was in there and had over 110 to a connection in my house. So does it use less bandwidth to host players with lower pings than players with higher pings?

No unless you are dropping packets along the way..  My question is why you are hosting 5 servers at your house and not on a rack in a data center when they can give you the speed and network connection that would allow for lower pings?

Maybe he has a rack at home and a really good connection at home.

Not many people have the same type of connections that Dataservers have... We are talking OC connections and some serious hardware to get that stuff running.. Plus any home connection unless it is a business class connection you are going to get crap for uploads and even then you are sharing bandwidth with all of the other people on the node..

Umm your cable connection isnt sh*t compared to a t1. lol

Try hosting on that and see if you dont get capped .

It is a shared connection with alot of people and a T1 is shared with no one besides yourself.

LOL Let's see T1=1.5 Mbps up and down ... My connection 15Mbps Down/ 2Mbps Up. do the math.. which is better? And I can't be capped there's a reason I pay $100 a month just for my internet. and the last time I heard Fiber optic lines eliminated the "shared cable" problem. I'm on an all fiber connection.

Sorry, it's shared.

All home connections are, and FIOS for that speed down here is $50, and the $100 is for 30 MB/s down and 5MB/s up, what do you have?

True but FIOS won't let you host servers use p2p etc. . and obviously nobody has heard of RoadRunner Business Class, Dedicated fiber lines for running your own web servers I guess.
