Im on the 10 MB, and this is my speed, saying that though I usually get a little bit more then that, may be that my housemates are online too atm, 20 a month sounds a lot, as i pay 27 and get tv and phone as well...

It's not necessarily you're bandwidth as I used to play flight simulator's online over a modem no problems back in the day, but your ping is quite high . Try using a wired connection, mine is wireless hence the bad ping.

I hate it when people lag, specially on FIFA, the amount of times I've had to stay in a game so I don't get a bad review is silly.

Nope

I can't see how you get 38meg over a phone line

http://www.speedtest.net/result/412163713.png

Not bad for a line that used to only be able to support 1.6Mbit

Me neither - but thats what the test keeps saying.

The test has to be wrong! The fastest I've seen over a phone line was 23mb with Be

I'm with Be (gonna switch to o2 = same LOL). Its not bad considering my max speed in this area is 8000 kbs
I don't have any probs with online gaming - i think its more to do with server and ping issues

For a londoner I think so (average 4975). I mean 170 ping, that will get laggy results i think.

Lol thanks :thumbsup:. Its near max upload (1300) which im glad. Though I wish I could trade a bit of upload with download.

from my head, its the time a data packet reaches you.

e.g. you send a data to someone saying you want X.
It takes 170ms for a response from the someone.
I think this is a main cause for slow and juttering online games

so not worth hooking the xbox up to the net?

depends, see if there is something you can do , check filter, rj11, faceplate, if you run lots of telephones in house with lots of extensions STOP, plug modem router into the first socket that comes into house from the telegraph pole.

If interleaving is on your ping will be higher than if you were on Fast path.

Fast may make your line more unstable but try anyways with the above and see if you can get higher sync and stability with lower ping ping from run/CMD some well known sites and see what you get eg ping bbc.co.uk, log into router and see what stats your line is doing/working on
