      MAG and Sky connect?

      Hello,

      I am on Sky Broadband (Sky connect 8MB) and i just can't play MAG in the day time, anyone else having this problem?

      the problems are

      • Lag
      • Die but still running around (can't shoot, but i think people can see my body on the floor)
      • spawn timer keep resetting ( i had this problem in the beta but thought it was a glitch, video from the beta YouTube - MAG beta spawn timer glitch )


      after midnight i can play a 256 match with no lag or problems.


      does anyone know what speed MAG requires?



      Thats the speed i am getting at the moment.

      Times i can/cant play so far are...

      • Friday 1pm - 4pm (Playable)
      • Friday 4pm - 12am (Unplayable)
      • Saturday 12am - till i went to be (playable)
      • saturday 1 pm - 12am (Unplayalbe)
      • sunday 12am - till i when to bed (Playalbe)
      • Sunday 12pm - i am guessing till 12am (Unplayalbe)


      i had the same problem with Homecall/PipeX/Tiscali on COD4MW years ago, they were blocking ports at peek times, it would seem that Sky are doing the same?

      so like i said anyone else having this problem?

      Hi there are many threads about the connect package look at the one below. 5pm till Midnight Traffic managed more like throttling also weekends the issue is not enough band width for the amount of connect Customers I have seen as low as 1kbps through the Bt speed performance tester which is also below right that is the best speed tester and the only one Sky will take notice off I also use Sky User - Broadband Speed Tester also thinkbroadband :: Broadband Speed Test and Broadband Speed Checker - THE UK's No.1 Broadband Speed Test to see if the speeds are the same. Also have a look at http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-b...tml#post256330 you might find that interesting.
