What are the effects of a high ping value?

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.

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.

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.
