So you ever play online and you get that guy who lags soo much that its just rediculous? Yeah Im usually one of those guys. Now Im trying to figure wheather if its my internet speed or not which is the main reason for this (Im pretty sure it is)

So I went on speedtest.net....

And the ping that I got for a server within my city was 26ms.
Download speed: 1.03 Mb/s
Upload speed: 0.12 Mb/s

Now is it just me or are those stats a bit too low? Particularly that upload speed.
Now do I assume that this is the major issue with me playing online? Cause playing sigle player I can run these games full graphics with no issue.

But I must point out, that I live in Australia where internet can get pretty expensive.

Thanks for any imput!

I hit 0.97 Mb/s down and 0.37 Mb/s up. Could be your up speed, but I don't lag at all when I play online games.

What is your ping in-game? What anti-virus software are you using? Do you have anything running in the background that would eat up your network connection? How many PC's are hooked up to the network? Cable or DSL?

1. Check for virus/spyware/malware etc.
2. Forward Ports
3. Make sure Firewall isnt blocking it. ( Including the built in firewall from Micro$oft )

None of the above working?
I have a typical speed of 1.5mb download and .50 upload. and have no problems at all.
