Again -- never stated anywhere in this thread by the OP anything about any latency issues!
You do understand you can have 1.5Mbps with Ping time X, or you could have 20Mbps with the same Ping time X.. His mom reducing the package she is paying for has nothing to do with the latency on the connection. NONE!
You asking him to trace route google is completely pointless and will show NOTHING.
Sadly, you're showing how little you know about networking.
If he's concerned about gaming, it's ALL about latency... which has ZERO to with latency. You can have a network with 200k download and 5ms latency response respond better in this type of scenario than 20mb download and 100ms latency resonse. This is gaming only.
However, if a networking compent upstream of our friend here is showing high latency or low throughput, that could indicate an issue he may need to enumate to his ISP before it is resolve. I'm sure dozens if not more of us have needed to show the "expert technicians" at our isp's where the errors in our ISP networks exist before recieving reasonable speeds...
Don't be negative just to be negative please, especially when you don't know the credentials of folk you question
