Black Ops 2 PS3 players look in please....

Ladies and gents, boys and gals could you do me a favor PLEASE....
When you next play Black Ops 2 before you start a game could you from the second menu select Options then press Select and let me know what speeds you're all getting please. I'm trying to establish why my connection is SO bloody SLOW compared to my friends.. Most if not all my mates are looking at 800 - 900 Kbps while I'm looking at significantly less and to be honest it's driving me to destruction so much so I'm thinking of buying my way out of contract!!  Angry
Much thanks  Wink
At the mo I'm looking at a 42ms ping, 6.48Mbps download and 0.35 upload incase it matters.

Isn't it 1000 Kbps to 1 Mbps?
So if anything you have 6x faster speed than your friends  Wink

Oops. Didn't explain that very well, my bad  Undecided
The local guys are all on 7.5Mbps+, 800 - 900 Kbps is the quoted speed in the game Options/Select at the second menu screen...
What really chaps my balls is my connection is always between 351 and 373 (speed quoted in the game) at best yet the guy next door is showing a consistent 851 Kbps  Huh the only difference is he's on TT...
Anyone who games online will know it's not much fun being a few seconds behind everybody else.

Maybe, I'm not sure?
Upload suits me it's just the poor gaming speeds that's annoying me especially when other providers can cater for gamers with reasonable in-game speed..

Re: Black Ops 2 PS3 players look in please....

I just bought this, wanted to try a different FPS to see if I experience the same lag issues as BF3. My bandwidth is showing as 687, so it looks like it's based on upload.
Does anyone know what the letters on 'connectivity information' represent? I've googled, but no-one seems to know. I have 5 missing letters.
NAT is open. PS3 is in router's DMZ.

You're upload is capped at 448kbps. I've placed an order to uncap it that should complete at some point tomorrow.

Don't get me started on Black Ops 2 and PlusNet - i've had nothing but a headache from switching over to them...
