You should really have a minimum of 512kbps for Xbox Live.

Microsoft recommends nothing slower than 3Mbps down.

You can get High-Speed Broadband for around $45 a month usually.

I'm sure the lag would be fine on his end. It's everybody else running around getting pissed off about how the host is the only one getting kills.

He wont lag when hosting because host gets 0 ping, but everyone in the room will lag bad due to his likely slow upload. To host a match you need at least 300k upload alone, 256k shared wont be good at all.

Yeah the guys at Xbox support line know nothing at all. Like morons.

They told me I need 3MBs too and I have only 1mb download and it is probably actually running at around 115Kbs. I never host though cause it's not fast enough for that.

I've got an average of 10,000 kbps down...and I still occasionally experience issues....256 is in no way enough.

Some people have 256/512kbs and it's enough for them so who knows. But if you have 10mb speed or whatever you have then I think it's something wrong with ur game or 360 or isp.

Think you're confused with your network speed.

Thats your router speed, not your ISP speed.

i've got 513kbps... but my internet speed actually clocks in at 875kbps every single time (with one or two acceptions it'll go down to 750kbps)... anyways, i experience some lag sometimes and it's annoying as hell... i used to have 256... you could maybe play Halo 2 with that online.. no xbox 360 games...
