What are the effects of a high ping value?

owen

How high of a ping value is acceptable? Lately, when I test it, I have been seeing results in the 110-120 range. I haven’t really noticed any problems though.

Ping time can vary so much according to factors outside your control. I typically see a lot of variation on wireless connections, which I consider normal.

If you aren't noticing problems then I wouldn't worry about it. Chances are everything is fine.

Lower is better, and yours is slightly on the high side for a broadband connection. Really, unless you start getting a ping of 150+, you are not going to see many ill effect, and even then the impact will probably be minimal, depending on what you are doing. I guess at that point if you were gaming online with other people it could cause issues, or perhaps the latency could be a problem with VoIP calls. As long as there is no significant packet loss and jitter isn’t excessive, you shouldn’t notice many ill effects.
