Why Is My Internet Connection So Slow!? Help.

5 replies 306 views Edited Dec 7, 2012

Alright, My ISP is providng me 5mbps, and when I ran the scan in the computer the results was 4.90mbps. Then when I run the scan in the PS3 it tell me 4.7mbps... So I don't understand what's happening...

Those sound about spot on actually.

 

If your ISP is providing you with 5Mpps & you're getting 4.9 & 4.7 respectively that's pretty darn close.

 

If you're not happy with your ISP or the speed they are providing you then I would suggest looking into increasing that speed with another package from your same ISP if it's avaialble, if not perhaps look elsewhere for a different provider altogether.

Well since you put it that way, maybe you're right. I used to have 3mbps, and it work pretty decent. When playing Battlefield 3 never lag me before, and that's having 3mbps, and how is that I recently switch to 5mbps, and now it lags... what you think?

I hate to say it but I think I am, 4.9 & 4.7 are as I said pretty darn close to the projected speed of 5.00 your ISP are providing you.

 

As for why BF3 lags now & not before, that's a difficult one to answer, does it always lag or just sometimes, could it be worse at say busier times of the day, are there other things also connected to your internet at home using the bandwidth?

Yes, maybe. and no, I have even tried connecting the PS3 directly to the modem, and I get the same reading... so I think you are right. Thanks for your time and help. I appreciate it.
