Verizion fios, congestion control and BB

Recommended Posts

I have a Verizon FiOS but I was just wondering does it really matter what algorithm I use as far as reactive and preemptive and also I understand having it at 7070 is a good idea but is it even necessary especially with fiber optic network and is there anything else that I should know my games of been running smooth even though I’m using 70s 70 on Congestion control but can I also just raise it up as much as 99 and also do people still use DSL reports.com because when I do switch it to preemptive my buffer bloat and quality are A+ (useually) when I change it to reactive buffer bloat never seems to load up I just get a line across and quality seems to be lower as far as a C or a D And also I saw that theory with changing it lower when I get the random Ping spikes because I won’t get the random Ping spikes when it’s at 4040 but my quality will be an F and will be an A when it’s around 50-70 but still get the ping spikes

Sorry if you don’t understand or bad grammar lol for the record I’m in new York and have my own dedicated line modem -netduma - nighthawk hardwired to Xbox

So pretty much I’m good and shouldnt worry to much cause I feel like it will all run the same since it’s fios I’m getting 0-2 ms ping to the router and 6-8 to google and 20-22 on twitter no matter where I put the slider

 

The slider doesn't change your ping unless someone is using 100% of your speeds which will make your ping spike.

As MoD said start with 70/70 and tweak from there.But from what you said about your PP results, it doesn't sound like you have any local network congestion going on.

 

And you didn't say anything about "lagging" in games,so I'd just leave the settings at 70/70.You have plenty of bandwidth for gaming at your current settings.

Okay thanks for the info I was more curious of since it being fiber I shouldn’t have to worry about lag spikes right? Or does it not even matter cause like I said there’s about 4-5 other devices running on it plus a xbox 360 because the point I was also try into make was I wanna give my self a little more bandwidth

If you max out your bandwidth your ping times will increase. Using congestion control will help this.
