Spiking Ping

We had a techinican come out last week to fix the connection from dropping in and out. That has been resolved, but now we are experiencing signficant lag spikes during online.

Level 2

As far as I can see its an issue with ping to Fortnite on PS4. The last two weeks its been pinging between 150-500, with short brief moments of ~40. If I connect my PS4 to my phones 4G connection, the ping is a stable 30-40.


I dont know if this is an issue with other TPG customers? I tried to track down the Ocenia Server addresses to do some checks, but couldnt track this down.


Is there a good site, tool that pings varying resources in our region?


Im available all day Thursday 18th April for a call/tech assistance.

Did this get resolved because we have the exact some promblem ?

Hi Mattzac1


Welcome to the Community! 


I was able to locate your account using your Community details and have ran remote tests as well. The results were inconclusive and no evident line fault shows. 


Are you perhaps home so we can perform troubleshooting along with you?
