Ping depends on how far away you are from a server. If I have FIOS and my friend is using DSL 1Mbps, but we both live <20 miles from the server, we will both have the same ping unless there is a problem on the carrier end.

It's my friend and I..

And the reason could be anything from your sister looking at secret girl porn, to the FBI snooping on you..

Why does he have a slightly better "ping" when you both are using different mediums from two different companies? Because the path your packets take are different..
