    Well my friend's uncle told me yesterday(since hes got the new lines) that in certain games that require one to go on a American server etc World of Warcraft,diablo 3, that their pings have nearly doubled!.This is not good the ping now is hardly good but double the ping we used to have doesn't seem all that swell. I know this doesn't concern the vast majority of you but a lot of Australians play Mmo's. Im even thinking this may affect consoles(Cod) maybe bf3, other games.
    Too my understanding this could play a big affect on Australians in gamers(certain genres that is).

    Your population sample size is too small.

    Your population sample size is too small.

    ^ this, come back when you have a decent sample size, say several thousand so its large enough to manipulate the data effectively.

    1: Disable nagles algorithm. (Halves pings for games that use TCP like WoW etc)

    **DOES NOT help with games that use UDP like BF3 , CSS ,TF2 etc because they are already going faster than what TCP could ever do.**


    2: It wont be the fiber. It will be the isp or routing, whether in the isps network or outside it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagle's_algorithm


    -Basically Nagles algorithm is basically a TCP efficiency / flow control mechanism which also helps avoid congestion.
    (If you would like to know more the link is above, but this is all you really need to know)

    The algorithms workings cause delay for TCP, which is why it is best to turn it off for gaming.


    There is a downside.....


    Algorithm off = much better pings (ONLY for games using TCP) but slightly decreased throughput.
    Algorithm on = better throughput (Kbps/Mbps etc) but much higher pings for games using TCP.





    How to turn off/on: (Default is on)
    http://www.speedguide.net/articles/windows-7-vista-2008-tweaks-2574





    Just a final note incase anyone didnt read the prior post.

    It wont work with FPS games (BF3, TF2, CSS etc, which already use UDP which is faster than TCP anyway) and if I see anyone try using this tweak for BF3, I am going to facepalm.
