Thus is the life of living in a small town with good high speed service (Cox). I can usually connect to many game servers for CS:S or TF2 out of Atlanta around 30ms, others in New York, DC or Chicago around 50-60ms.

I've never even heard of the Sandy South. Is that a town? You said small so I guess it's pretty small.

You play Counter-Strike? I got it and a buddy of mine plays it alot but I haven't really played much. I am a Battlefield 2 player

Sandy South = Florida
I am in a small town in northwest FL between Pensacola and Panama City

I play CS:S, but most recently I have been playing some TF2 which is so much fun... but after I tire of most games (including BF2), I always end up going back to CounterStrike

My Internet Service Provider (Singtel Limited) Is providing less than It should. Lol, Next time when I start working, I will buy at least a super fast Service.

I really think most every one with HS Internet has the ability to have good speeds. Lots of times its the layout of the houses cable lines and/or poor connections. Another culprit in older houses is the wrong guage wire. New homes are usually wired with RG-6 were as older homes have RG-59. A high quality Digital RG-6 is best. If you can, you want the cable modem to be one of the first devices split off to from the line coming into the house. See Dia.

I think one of the reasons I have good speeds is I don't use cable for TV, I have Dish for that. So the cable is a "Home Run" straight to the modem from the connection coming into the house. No Splitters or un-needed barrel connectors, high quality rg-6, and good connections.
