Will a faster Internet connection help reduce my lag in online video games?

by on June 17, 2010

Q: I love my xbox live and shooting people 🙂 Yay Call of duty.. but my connection has always been laggy. My question is.. would upgrading to a 3mbps from a 1mbps dsl connection help alleviate some of the lag? If not, do you know what might help?

    I would say that yes a faster internet connection would speed up your game play and remove the lag that you have been experiencing. I would suggest maybe trying to bring your xbox to a friends house with a faster internet connection first though just to be sure.

    Talk to your internet service provider about your ping issues. They can help diagnose if there is a problem with the network. You also may want to run a Ping Test: http://www.pingtest.net/
