Ping (in a nutshell) is basically the communication between 2 devices and how long it takes for each device to respond to each other. If you have a high resolve time (such as 1670ms) then that means that it takes that amount of time for the communication between you and that end device to communicate. This is usually cause by high latency (lag), distance, and high traffic causing alot of packet collision. Like what everyone else is saying, the higher ping response, the lousier your internet experience will be.

It's usually around 56ms which is fine for playing games. I have noticed a drop in overall internet speed, while browsing, downloading etc, and was wondering if the ping was the cause.

It's really slow. My ping (even when my internet is terrible) is only about 10ms. Ping is a pretty big issue with gaming mainly because it determines response time, essentially. A high ping like yours means you may as well forget about gaming online.

Whenever I do a speed test, usually here, I am given an upload and download score, as well as a ping score.
I have done a little googling as to the normal ping that most people have, of course all are different, but I have figured that the average is around 100ms. I believe my ping to be unusually high, at 1670ms, and I was wondering what effects this would have on my internet speed, just for browsing not for gaming?
