This is what's called slow internet. If your download speed is only 2mbps, then your upload is no better, if not worse.

If possible, I would look into getting a faster internet package. Something that is at least 5mbps up and down, since that seems to be the average in the Philippines.

I legitimately feel bad since 50-75mbps is considered normal in the US... 


If I don't respond, please tag me in your post. I'm probably AFK or responding to someone else. 

Fine you want the PSU tier list? Have the PSU tier list: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1045610-new-psu-tier-list/

Is there an option to specifically join Asia server? Despite having really fast connection if your latency is high due to distance then it's no use.

But certainly, having faster internet may help, but not latency really. Are you using WiFi? Moving closer to the router helps, and switching to cable connection will be even better.

You need a faster internet connection not a new router.

Thanks for the info guys.. I am really looking forward to upgrade out internet here since their offerings here is way too pricey, you'll get 34$/month for only 10mbps dsl internet, and 38$/month for fiber 20mbps, well in here its really hard to earn that kind of money, well just like i said, im looking forward to upgrade our internet, thanks again guys..

Only in major cities, people in trailer parks in many places are still stuck on plain DSL.

 

I have a friend in Texas and neither him nor his parents are able to get fast broadband and they live in different cities.

Your high pings may also be due to un-optimal routing from your ISP or Valve. You might get better results by just switching to a different ISP (one with better peering and less congested transit links). 

 

On a related note, I have access to fiber internet connections from three different ISPs (two are enterprise class and the other is small business internet) and I'm getting really bad performance to eat.valve.net (192.69.96.1). And I'm in Vancouver, which is really close to Seattle. Usually pings to Seattle are 4-7ms for me (pings to Google are just 4ms). Right now, eat.valve.net is getting me between 12ms to 200ms (averages are 30ms, 56ms and 82ms across the three connections). So it looks like Valve is having network performance issues in Seattle (or at least to eat.valve.net). Two of the connections I tested from are with ISPs that have peering with Valve in Seattle, and I'm seeing normal performance of 4.5ms to the Valve's IX border router in Seattle (six1.sea.valve.net), so it could be an internal routing issue with Valve. Maybe try a different server, like Singapore.
