insight or whatnot, ping problems

Recommended Posts

ok so here i go. insight in my town was just bought out by cox but i done think they have officially switched yet, anyways. back in the summer i was getting awesome pings of about 12ms, which is really good. but then starting in about august (coincidently when the students returned to college) my ping started to get steadly worse. at the moment my ping at night averages about 250 and thats on the servers that used to give me 12. my dl dropped for 10mps to about 2-3 depending on the ping. ive had the tech guys out here about twice the first time they said the line was at about 90% usage and said something about switching us to a different line. but its still at about 250ms. the second time they came out they said there was really nothing they could do and that comcast was going to be "firing up" some new equipment that should fix the problem but im weary about that being true.

so can anyone tell me that comcast taking over will fix the problem or am i just generally screwed cause of their overselling? and should i switch back to dsl, cause atleast with that i would get a steady ping and a steady speed even though its only 3 mb

darklagoon,Welcome to the forum and we hope you enjoy your stay here.I have Insight but I live in Kentucky and not experiencing the problems you are. You know Comcast was 50% owner of Insight and you are being given to Comcast as a pay off to get rid of them. I hope Comcast stands by all of you and works the problems out.

    :welcome:

yup, consider yourself comcast now.. the ping problems will go away within two weeks and sometime with no connectivity as they told me that they are switching to their comcast servers AND ip's (speeds too) within the next two weeks. so dont worry, everything will be aiight =)

BTW Welcome to the fourms and enjoy your stay!

darklagon that is EXACTLY my prob... this is gonna be my second time getting an insight tech.

i go to Purdue univ in west lafayette, IN

in Team fortress 2 i get pings between 100-300... worst is when i run a netgraph 3 it says my ping is around 47?!? but the graph spikes so much the ping shows on score list as super high.

i got kicked from many servers because they called me a hacker ... for teleporting...

i HATE insight
