    It's crazy how this can vary even among people with the same service. When i'm at my uncles (Road Runner) i can download things from the store literally in 30 seconds or less. Now at home (Windstream) the same 30 second download will take 30 minutes to an hour or more. Things like time of day, IPs throttling back speeds at heavy times of day, and even different brands of router are mostly to blame. Someone should make a thread where people can post their speeds, Internet provider, and router type. People can use these as examples when shopping around. It could even be stickied as this is one of the most brought up subjects about the PS3.

    Mine is 1.3 - 1.5 Mb/s up... heck, even when it was 768Kb/s it was plenty for any online gaming I'd do on 360, PC, or PS3... most of the time someone is using the computer also.

    3.5down and 0.5 up. Not amazing, but it's enough for gaming and every day internet activities.

    I notice this chart tends to fluctuate. That's normal, right?

    1.3Mbit which is about 160KB/sec.

    A fewfactors determine speed of internet through your phoneline.

    1. Quality of the phone line, if you have hisses or crackles then your speed will suffer and there is nothing your ISP can do its all down to your phone company uness thy re 1 and the same however usually phone companies don't have to guarantee your internet speeds so unless it interferes with you making and receiving calls they wont do anythig about it.

    2. Distance form the exchange - Further you are from the exchange the more speed is lost due to the resistance of the cables.

    3. Wireless is worse than wired (proof in above posts) if you want a tip top connection you have to go wired I know people that use wireless and they moan about their net all the time lag spikes slow downlads and I often see them warping about in game
    And do not expect you 1Mbit upload speed to be able to handle 12 players in COD or whatever game you play, it cannot you need at the very least a 2Mbit upload and thats pushing it

    No you don't, I have only 768k upload and play COD fine and host 16 player rooms on GT5 on the High quality (Recommended)

    Even Virgin media's 50MB only does 1.5 Mb upload, so you must be saying that No person in Britain can play COD without lagging and glitching?

    This is a good thread but I think what would be the best value is to compare your home computer to the playstation to see if there is difference (both wired and wireless for both if possible).

    Anyway, just my opinion. Can't wait to frag some n00bs when PSN comes back online. Peace out.

    Expected worse to be honest... internet will be upgraded around here in a few month (finally).
    Then i'll get a 16mbit connection, i could even get "Fibre to home" (up to 100mbit) but im not sure if its worth the price.
    Can't wait till the days of slow internet are finally over (everyone with a 1mbit connection will understand what i mean).
