    Never had this issue living in the SE, but now that I'm in the SW the lowest ping I can get is 170ms-ish. Back on the east coast I'd sit comfortably at high 70-low 80ms.

    It's pretty unplayable at this point. And this is going from 100mbps DSL internet (Cox) to 300mbps fiber with AT&T. Should be better. Is not. Makes Daenar sad.

    Here's a tracert, anything I can do?

    I'll give that a shot later thanks! Right now, google searching shows that AT&T won't let me change the DNS on the gateway they gave me, so I'll have to find a way to do a bridge mode or IP passthrough and cascade my own router behind it to handle all that. I'm not entirely sure how most of this works, and if doing the cascade onto my own router which can then change the DNS will fix the issue.

    never had much luck with the phone company's internet providers (DSL and such) perhaps just get broadband from your local cable company.
