Use something like http://www.pingtest.net/ to test the quality of your connection.

Dude, that's a very very good ass connection, your lagging because of the host, or another player has a sucky connection. Its not yours, sometimes it can be if its storming and the lines can get little off, but other than that, your good to go.

Dude, you should start hosting games, if possible. That connection is a beast.

Wow, I was paying about $40 a month for 12Mbps DOWN. ...but wasn't Comcast.

What are you paying -- like a $500/mo.? :p

I'm so jealous. I dont know you but i dont like you. jk. to give you an idea i am on the opposite spectrum. My upload is about .51 and my downlaod is about 4. Maybe you are lagging because you're a red sox fan. haha.

Trust me mate your upload speed is absolutely fine;)

That is a fantastic connection you have there. With that speed you could probably download "The Internet" in about 3 hours :woop:. And I thought my 20mb download and 0.75mb upload was good :uzi:

The only three things I would say would be

Is your Xbox 360 on a wired or wireless connection? If wireless that maybe where the problem lies. You could have a connection with a gazillion mb download + upload and it wouldn't really make any difference if your wireless signal is poor

Despite your speed being nearly off the charts your ping is slightly high for gaming I guess. Not ridiculously high but it may cause a few hiccups I suppose. It would be interesting to see if it gets any higher or if that's the highest it gets

Does the connection get worse at peak times? I know my connection can get ropey especially on Sundays

Apart from that I'd take other people's advice and start hosting matches ;)
