My IP is in Indiana but I have to access something in Arizona but I'm required to have ping no higher than 70. It seems impossible. I have uverse with 24m but the ping never goes below 92. My pc is direct wire ethernet. If I can get a proxy in Oklahoma wouldnt that be a a link that would be 1000 miles closer?

Kyle: There are networks designed to help gamers reduce their ping by providing servers nearer to them, might be worth looking into;

No. U got your answer already!

Here comes, why….. Proxy works on behalf of you. And ping is tge rount trip timer between you and your destination.

Taje that, the round trip timer (rtt/ping) is lesser between your proxy server and your destination but still your total tine will be high. Cause, your packet should have to reach to the destination! In this case, to your orixy server and in addition ➕ proxy server delay ➕ proxy server to your final destination. Which adds more time delay. So if you are getting a direct delay then there is no way to reach to your destination faster. You might change your Internet technology, which may decrease your ping with your isp. And isps are generally faster.

Josh:
A proxy adds extra Internet path and the delay of an extra server into the path of a ping and into the path of the returning packet. Unless the direct path is faulty, the proxy will always add many milliseconds to a ping.

Adrian:
Proxy will lengthen delay, if anything. Using a proxy means you have to go through other computers to get back to the Internet again.
Ping times is the total of all links along the way. If your ISP is the bottleneck, no proxy will help at all. If the bottleneck is the service you are connecting to, no proxy will help with that either.
AZIANNE:
It depends on your proxy server. If the proxy is have a lot of traffic, your ping will increase. So do research to find the best proxy. I suggest Betternet since it increases your speed no matter the traffic.

No. Its 100 miles further away on the other side…
