What does Ping basically mean?

The ping basically a program which sends a packet of data to another computer/server to check if it connects to the server. The time it takes the signal to return back is measured in milliseconds. That is why you see ping in milliseconds (ms) during online gameplay.

Online games are communicated through servers located somewhere on the globe. When an action is done(like shoot command in PUBG), this signal is sent to the game server and it returns back in some time. This time duration comes somewhere below one second, so it is measured in milliseconds(ms).

Lower is the ping, higher is the response time. That’s why lower ping player has a greater advantage over high ping players.

  • ping between (20-30 ms): Seamless connection
  • ping between (30-100 ms): Very good connection/response
  • ping between (100-200 ms): Decent connection/response
  • ping between (200-1000 ms): Laggy connection

conclusion

So, now you have some idea about ping and how does it work. It has greater significance apart from online games. Do you guys know ping test is done to identify the server errors? Do let us know in the comment section.
