Hi All

As a serious and dedicated gamer Im concerned with amount of Lag on xbox live.
I mostly play Halo2 where half a second is the difference between life and death.

I have a telecom broadband connection with a 10gig limit, but im pretty sure it all comes down to ping time?

Can anyone tell me how to improve my situation?
Is it a matter of connecting to a NZ server?
If so how or is there a more appropriate connection I should be looking at?

Many Thanks

Hey man, i play call of duty 4 heaps and i find it helps quite a bit to unplug the headset as i guess this frees up a bit of space? also obviously playu=ing a game with more kiwis and aussies speeds it up alot. but other than that i have the same problem, don't know what else to do about t.
