I am a League of Legends player and sometimes, it just gives you a horrible ping. usually it is 50ms but it gets up to 250-300 constantly. This ping rise has been an issue for me for quite a while. Is there any fix to this?
We have been hearing about issues ever since they moved their servers. If you could reply here by copy and pasting a trace route to the LoL servers we can take a look further.
League is super laggy right now
If you run a speed test at speedtest.shaw.ca what results are you getting currently?
I was getting the speeds I purchased. It is only lagging to League of Legends (biggest game in the world currently). My trace route can be found on this thread. Potential severe routing issues between Shaw and Riot Games 22/12/2015
I'd also like to just add that I should not be the one to contact Riot Games (League of Legends) to get this all sorted out for SHAW. I, and many others, are thinking of or are switching to Telus because of this issue (see Still getting huge ping spikes in League of Legends. kwak960116-Feb-2016 21:35) I have contacted Riot games and I know they will say it's SHAWs network. Please stop blaming each other and someone take initiative. Not sure what I am paying for. This has happened before between SHAW and Riot Games and it took 6+ months to get sorted.

Still getting huge ping spikes in League of Legends.
And I found these in 10 seconds just on your forums alones.
I'm a CS:GO player and the same thing is happening to all players from my city (Winnipeg). Our ping to certain locations has increased from 30s to 90s. And I've contacted ESEA and talked with them for 2 weeks about it and they've told me that it's absolutely a shaw issue. The last response I got from shaw on the issue was a week ago and they have no responded to me since. This is getting ridiculous.
An ESEA staff member posted about upstream outages here (https://play.esea.net/index.php?s=forums&d=topic&id=732585&find_comment_number=2#n2 )
And this was the exact same the routing issues for all of Winnipeg started having issues. I need an answer from shaw on when this will be fixed or i will have no choice but to switch providers.
Hey there imckay_,
Very sorry about this! I definitely understand how an increase of ping times can be frustrating. 90 ping isn't the worst, but CS:Go is a game where you notice slight ping increases like this more than a lot of other ones. Can you post a traceroute in this thread to a server you're having issues with? We'd love to take a closer look.
