So, i was playing fortnite and my ping was like 28. But whenever my grandma turns on her tablet and watch youtube, my ping increased to like 500-1000. Can someone pls tell me how i can solve this problem as the ping is really screwing up my game?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

One reason may be that your grandma is using a lot of bandwidth and causing much slower data transfer speeds. This may happen is she has a slow internet connection like DSL. The more devices trying to connect to the network at the same time will slow everything down.  It could also be the way the modem/router are configured. We would need more specific details to provide alternate solutions.

    What type of Tablet that your grandma is using now? Is it Windows/ Android/ Apple iOS ? How did she connect the Tablet while you are playing? Actually what type of set-up is there? Please provide more details.

    One more thing, you can exchange the place of your grandma & check what happens, if possible.
