Moving from Cable to Fibre in Wellington

Hi,

Currently on cable top speed unlimited plan (assuming it's HFC and Xbox network test typically reports avg latency of 154ms and that's the best I've gotten it over time. We now have had Fibre installed in our street by Chorus (I'm assuming it's UFB). I'm a Destiny gaming fanatic and oh so keen for a noticeable reduction in latency. Is it worth moving to UFB? Anyone in a similar position experienced a noticeable improvement in latency moving to UFB or any Vodafone techs willing to offer an informed opinion? I've been with Voda for many years and don't know if a better option would be to change ISPs but knowing all the variables involved in internet routes it's likely not a solution.

 

Thanks in advance.

@francois  The difference between HFC and Fibre latency is next to nothing!

 

The only way to get lower latency would be to move closer to the servers
