Still lagging out of games; online gaming help please

Ive been trying to play the xbox online again the past 2 days, despite having speeds of around 4 down and 0.33 up i am still lagging out of games or if i stay in a game its unplayable. looking at the connection bars the max i get is 3 bars but its normally around 2 and even 1 some games.
is there anything i can do from my end to stop this and speed up the connection?
Thanks

Hi RyanGould,
Have you noticed if your NAT Type is set to either Open, Moderate or Strict? Also would you be able to comment on how you are connected to your Xbox (Wireless or through the Ethernet Cable)?

NAT type is open and the Xbox is wired with a 1 meter length of cat 5 cable into the router.
