Extremely high ping after recent install

Exactly as the title says, my ping is very high (700-2000 ms) even with an Ethernet connection. My guess is that the server the network is connecting to is very far away; I live in North Carolina, and I’m connecting to a server in Wichita. Is there any way to change the data server, or just lower my ping? It’s impossible to do anything timely with this high ping.

Hi @officialkarenlee

Are you experiencing slow speeds, or buffering?

Satellite internet has extremely high latency, due to the distance between satellites and the surface of the Earth. It’s normal to see a ping of 500-700ms in speed tests when you have a satellite connection.
