    Internet struggling to cope with MW3 Online

    This is a discussion on Internet struggling to cope with MW3 Online within the Gaming on Sky forums, part of the Sky Broadband help category; I'm told by Sky that 7mbps is the maximum achievable speed given the distance to the exchange. That's rubbish!...

      Hope it wasn't mine

      I've been doing pretty well, it's just not enjoyable to play when the screen keeps glitching every few seconds.

      By you attenuation, moving to ADSL2+ will probably increase this to around 32db, which should still give you a much better speed. Let's hope it is you internal wiring which is holding you back as that is easy to fix, not so if it is external.

      Here are my stats at the moment you will notice my attenuation is a good bit higher than yours -
      SNR (dB): 6.9 7.5
      Attn(dB): 37.5 22.7
      Pwr(dBm): 19.1 12.3
      Rate (Kbps): 9209 1090
