Latency

What is the best way to get the lowest ping possible? I average around 50ms after switching to fastpath, I was just wondering if I could squeeze it down any lower? I have the 3mbps package and that's the fastest speed I can get.

50msec latency to what? Latency is all relative to what you are testing against and where it is located geographically with repect to your network and whether your line is saturated with traffic or not. At 3Meg down and 512K up you can easily sustain 100% line saturation which will cause your perceived latency to increase dramatically. Ping www.google.com and see how that looks.

Try
ping prcc.edu

For someplace farther that will give a longer ping time,
ping mumbainet.com

If the ping times you are trying to improve are to game servers, avoid 8 PM to 1 AM Sunday ... Friday.

If you wonder where the time goes, if using Windows, try
tracert www.anl.gov
Note that not all hops will return the packets that will give a number all of the time, but it can give you an idea of what is going on.
