Bad lag in Call of Duty (xbox live)

I am getting terrible lag on Call of Duty Black Ops (xbox live)..
I will be 4 bars (full connection) then 20 seconds later I will be 1 or 2 bars connection.
and I will get "connection interupted" message on the screen and teleport back to the same spot when I try moving.
Then it will go back to 4 bars for a little while (maybe 30 seconds) before lagging some more...
and it's not a bad host because it's in every game, and all the other players have 4 bars constantly.
I am not sure how long it been happening for, atleast for the last 5 days I have had the problem.

loads of people having gaming problems i even had to get rid of my xbox in the end as plusnet didnt see a problem, and it was pointless keeping it.
Joke tbh

You do realise the problem could be with the HOST and not with plusnet.. if a host is having a firewall issue/bad connection, or someone on the hosts connection start using a torrent/p2p program is can cause issues for the people connected to them. But if you were the only player in the game with 1-2 bars then it would possibly be a firewall issue on your end, or plusnet routing/priority issue.
The console versions do not have dedicated servers and work off of a peer system one person usually the person with the best connection (upload, and download etc) being the host.

Nope, its either a Plusnet issue, Xbox or Call of Duty issue. Xbox and Call of Duty are reporting everything ok with their servers. I got friends who are not on Plusnet who are ok. But when I join, I bring everyone down to my level, lagging the server.
So its a plusnet issue. Started last night and STILL going on this afternoon and I rebooted my router twice.
I'm atttempting another go now, see if I can get in a game at normal pace and play without lag.
This started happening after my speed increased, with 21cn not impressed at the moment!

May have been a LIVE network issue then.. they report the servers fine but it could besomething they're not aware of.
