Strategies to minimize Jitter:
- Use fixed ethernet not WiFi wherever possible.
- Reduce packet conflicts on WiFi by reducing number of devices operating on the same channel.
- Avoid large data file transfers going over the same WiFi environment concurrently with voice.
- Avoid bufferbloat.
Why does my Internet have so much jitter?
Network Congestion — Probably the most obvious and common cause of jitter is simply an overcrowded network. If you have too many devices looked up to the same network, all being used at the same time, you will run out of bandwidth, and slow your connection to a crawl.
What is acceptable Internet jitter?
Jitter is the irregular time delay in the sending of data packets over a network. Acceptable jitter means what we are willing to accept as the irregular fluctuations in data transfers. According to Cisco, jitter tolerance is as follows: Jitter should be below 30 ms. Packet loss shouldn’t be more than 1%.
What is acceptable jitter for gaming?
For gamers a simple rule applies: the lower the latency the better. Anything under 100ms should be acceptable but the ideal aim should be for latency to be no more than about 30-50ms. A somewhat related concept, jitter, is the variation (in milliseconds) in latency.
