Practically the same speeds for me. Yea, the quality of the servers make all the difference.

10 or 20 mbps? Is that even possible? Not where I live. The highest i can get is 9 and that's plenty.

I use a 1.5mbps connection. All my games work fine, when my PS3 worked anyway. Now I got the YLOD.

Well I can't figure out why I'm lagging every single online game of Madden. It makes kicking and switching to wide receivers and defenders while the ball is in the air to make a play practically impossible. Lag is not a good thing in a game where split seconds are everything. Just wish I could determine whether it's just me. Surely more people would be complaining if it's like this for everyone. I get about 4-5 mbps download speed. My connection is around 90% most the time. Can't figure this out...
