Hi guys. I have high ping in call of duty 4 modern warfare. I recently changed from an ADSL to Cable internet connection. The ADSL was slow 1.5 megabit and the cable connection is 20 megabits or 2 megabytes. I seem to have absolutely no problem with download speeds (max down speed is 2100 kb/s) or internet browsing and youtube videos load pretty quick even on 1080p but i seem to have high ping in CoD4. I play on the same server i was playing for a year and had a low ping of 30-50 with the ADSL connection. But now i get 80-120 and sometimes goes as far as 180 ping. I scanned my PC for viruses and found nothing, checked to see if any program is downloading anything and found nothing, updated punkbuster still nothing. I just don't know why am i getting high ping. Help!

Best solution

Internet speed has nothing little to do with latency/ping times. Your new ISP might be more hops from your game server than your old ISP, and/or a link between you and the game server is overloaded. You can call your ISP help desk, but usually the only fix is to change ISPs. . .
