      The first thing to realise is that these apps, speedtest and pingtest are not really reliable. To get an acurate figure you are better using a Command Prompt and type ping bbc.co.uk, or use the Ping Test in the router settings to ping 212.58.241.131

      Regretabley, if you are on the Gamer profile there is little more you can do.

      If you ping is 30ms then that should be fine. I game with a ping of 30ms. If you connection is laggy then it is generally the host, especially if on Xbox or PS3. I do not notice much if any lag unless the host has an extremely poor connection.

      Just because you are in manchester doesnt mean thats your best server

      you will have to goto london then back to manchester
      London Namesco will be the best for 99% of people
