My ISP recently decided it would be a good idea to have a bandwidth cap daily limit of around 10 GB ... which is fine i guess, anyways the question here is that does throttled download speeds and upload speeds affect ping in game because after crossing the 10 GB limit set by the ISP my internet instead of completely shutting down goes into slow down and up speed via throttle at about 60 kbps and i think that because of that my games have high ping , i'm pretty sure that isn't the case but i'm asking this just for assurance 

 

 

 

Thanks :)

Ping is how long it takes for you to contact the game server/another client. So yes, if your connection is slowed then it will cause your ping to go up. Slower speed = longer time to contact gameserver/peer = higher ping

Something is wrong if you are using 10GB per day.  I have a rental attached to my home network and we watch Netflix and Amazon every night plus internet on phones and pcs/laptops and don't get even close to that in a month let alone in a day.
