Unusually high home/world latency right now

Technical Support
Prev 1 2 3 5 Next
Add me to the list of NJ Optimum Online users experiencing very above normal Home and World Latency (426ms and 173ms respectively).
Yep and no response from Bliz to say if they realize what's up :( I swear getting blue responses these days is very rare.

They may simply just not know.
NJ but Cablevision. It just keeps jumping all over the place.
Glad to know I'm not the only one! I guess it's an Optimum thing.

I've been having this problem since 3/15. Optimum claims there is an issue with my outside lines. Asked me to wait a week for them to repair. Waited the week, still happening.

Just got off the phone with them and they told me the appointment was rescheduled because...they do not have the man power to fix it (no joke)

They said a tech will be out here tomorrow. Crossing my fingers.
It can't be a local issue ( i.e lines outside your place.) It is too widespread through the Optimum service. Blue poster, let us know you are aware of this.
NJ but Cablevision. It just keeps jumping all over the place.

Cablevision = Optimum Online

Hah, thanks. Been spacing out as of recent. This shish still sucks, I can't even play now as it just got worst.
north jersey, optimum. home and world latencies fluctuating up to 1300ms.
From Bronx, NY same ISP Optimum Online. Hope this is not the same issue from 5 years ago where it took almost 2 weeks to resolve.

Huge spike going to 12.122.254.242
Same here. Optimum Online ISP, North Jersey. Latency spiking to 1.3k.
At least I don't feel as bad since I'm not alone. Rebooted my router, cable modem, deleted my WTF directory, etc...
Same problem here suffolk county long island
Same problem here, optonline NY.

the Tech isnt going to do anything. Your connection isnt the problem, its Cablevision having issue with blizzard. IDK if anyone remembers during the end of BC, they had this problem where your MS would spike to 3k and disconnect you constantly. It took about 2 weeks to resolve.

All the tech will do is re-do your antenna and give you the 3.0 modem, assuming you dont have it and call it a day. I just got of a session of playing Gears of War Judgment and didnt lag at all. Its a Cablevision to Blizzard problem.
Forgot to mention I am from eastern long island and use optimum online.
