Ping Test

Give it a try here:
This is especially useful for people in Thailand trying to stream data or play multi-player games on servers overseas. Try testing your latency to Bangkok, then to a foreign destination. The traffic bottlenecks at the undersea data cables after being squeezed through government filters and ISP proxies, which explains the pitiful latency. It’s not quite as bad as DSL being beat by carrier pigeon, but it does explain why Skype and internet radio reception can be so crappy a lot of the time.

  1. I once saw a genuine copy of BF2 for sale here and on the box was a big neon sticker saying you wouldn’t be able to play on overseas servers but there was a key for official EA servers in Thailand included.
