CTF is in the UK now, this is why ping is at least 80-100 ms from the east coast US. From Canada 120 is normal, all traffic is routed towards east coast US where it enters transatlantic internet connection, like this:

Thick blue line is the new 100 Gbps link, which will be activated in 2012 and i think it will lower pings from Canada. :)

Huawei also demonstrated co-propagation of 100 Gbps wavelengths at 50 GHz spacing which enables future upgrades of subsea capacities up to 5 Tbps.

This 100 Gbps technology is available on Huawei's OptiX product series which is a next generation, intelligent, Optical Transport Network platform scalable to over 6 Tbps of switching capacity.

No, although it is not like playing with 40-50 ping. Try with /cg_lagometer 1 in console, or bind it:
Code: Select all
bind F9 "toggle cg_lagometer"


It should be green line at bottom, no yellow (or very little occasionally, depends on client as well), and absolutely no red vertical lines (packet loss).
