    With WebAfrica's shaped account I used to get 280ms on SSL(EU) on my 4Mbit line.

    Well, go for one that's unshaped of course.

    The uncapped offerings tend to limit how
    much you download, but are better for
    games.

    You could just get a VPN account, they're usually less than R100 a month and using one with MWeb 4Mbps Uncapped usually gets you around 240ms. I use gamemax.org at the moment, though you could try one of the free (for now) VPNs like battleping.com.

    This is my general latency in 25 mans on WA + private SSH (VPS) VPN.

    Well one of my guild members and I have spoken about this quite a lot and he's tried a lot of different ISPs with and without a VPN account, he gets the best latency of 220ms on Axxess Uncapped 4Mbps line with gamemax.org

    But does he get that in 25man raids when there are a lot of activity? I mean I get 195ms when I stand in dalaran at times, but it doesn't mean I get that in 25man raids, I also get 205ms in Arena when I used to do that, still doesn't mean I get that in 25man raids.

    w00t, you have the same interface as me

    Also, I had Uncapped (Afrihost) and even with the VPN had issues.

    So I'm on a 30GB Webafrica account and get around 280ms

    Hey Tinuva, nice UI, where can I get that, and would it be worth it for just casual playing and not heavy raiding and stuff?

    That's LUI3 if I'm not mistaken ?

    Webafrica unshaped has been more wobbly than my IS uncapped account (which says a lot).
    Atm I think it's pretty much pot luck as to your ADSL infrastructure more than your ISP as they have all had their wobbles lately.

    It is indeed LUI.

    I guess your exchange's path to WA's network is not that great, but you can see from that screenshot that my experience is lovely.

    It is called LUI, and you can just visit http://www.wow-lui.com/ and follow the links from there. It is by far one of the easiest UI's to install and configure, but you will spend a good hour or so tweaking it, at least you can do this in-game ect. The UI is worth for all kinds of playing, the only limiting factor I found is the XP bar whilst leveling alts, but it is something I got used to.

    To date, when IS has been unstable at least WA was fast and reliabel and vice versa. But yes, I expected with all these ISP changes, ADSL upgrade testing etc, that my pathing to WA may be borked.

    As far as UI's, I hate the prepackaged ones simply because it takes so long for them to be updated come any major changes.
    I have a list of dpeendable standalone UI and Raiding mods and just update those regularly I do like the look of LUI tho.
