My was dire last night, real nightmare. Quite possibly the worst I have had so far when not host and when host it was not good either. I gave up after 3 games as it was to bad to play. I then went on youtube, that was pants too.
I checked my speeds and posted the test results on the happenings thread. The stats look fine. But it wasn't.

@ craig - Not bothered with that one as I have always assumed my stats were spot on. The speedtest ones seem less accurate, but they are very consistant. I have not done too many pingtest ones, but the do fluctuate slightly. The are generally spot on so I have not bothered. I tend to think that my issue is not something that will show up on a test. The issue, imho, lies with the provider, not my general connection. My Black Ops sessions through the day have actually been night and day different to the evening sessions.

there is a test called glasnost which may be what you want, it measures your connection over HTTP, then over P2P and tells you if your ISP are throttling p2p
it takes about 5 minutes to run, you could try running it in the management period, then outside the management, obviously the results will be pretty different

Yep, I posted it around an hour ago. Basically everything is quicker/smoother. BOPS is not perfect when host because of Treyarch's "host compensation lag", but its miles better than I was getting on VM. The biggest difference though seems to be Youtube esp during "peak" hours. No stuttering at all on 1080p, even when the wife is watvhing iPlayer HD at the same time.
