Battlefield 4 Lag

I've been having problems with consistent lag while playing multiplayer and there doesn't seem to be too much help with it. People are saying to open ports or not needing to open ports so I'm not sure what to do. My Internet kind of sucks but I can play all my other games just fine with slower speeds than what I have now. I have about 40 ping, 1.5 mb download and .5 mb upload. Anyone have an idea of what I can do?

Hey Jolly Green, one tip I can suggest is to use the server browser (Multiplayer --> Server Browser) and have it set to show only servers in your region. You will have better ping times for those servers, you can customise what you're searching by clicking on the right thumbstick in the server browser menu.

Your download speed is good enough for Xbox Live multiplayer games in general, so that may help it out somewhat. Let me know!

I tried that before but it didn't really make a difference. I'm in Texas and k tried the east and west coast games. Any other ideas?

I have 20 mbps and literally cannot run in this game on multilayer.  Every 2 steps forward I glitch backwards one step really sucks cause it's a lot of fun when I can actually move around. Hope they fix soon :(

I feel your pain. The update today fixed a lot. Like crashing ect. Havent had any of those problems since. But ever since the update i have lag spikes every 2 minutes and they last at least 10 seconds each just long enough for me to die.... i dont know what to do. I have the best internet around. Note i didnt lag at all before the update

With Internet, you want a faster upload speed than download.  0.5 upload is near the bare-minimum for being able to play online and with BF4 being such a vast multiplayer experience with up to 64 players, your Internet may be stressing to keep up.  Now, I'm not saying it's your Internet's fault.  BF4 is having tons of server issues ATM so it most likely is their problem.  If, in a couple months, your still having trouble, you may want to upgrade to faster Internet.

I have given up on playing BF4 online... I can't even move from the spawn position. Download speed is 11.5mb/s Upload speed is 2.5mb/s. It has to be the servers. I hope EA fixes their problems soon because I'm about ready to give up on the game and sell it.

Hmmmm...I am not having this problem....I would seriously try to put your console in the DMZ of your router to test, or better yet plug directly into the modem.

got the same feeling since the patch the lag have increase. I know they have tweak the network code to correct/change lag behavior, but it worsn't on my side. And i'm saying that not because of stats, i do get good and bad game, and in both there are multiple occasion i clearly can identify lag and the must notorious one i try to record them, but xbox one fail to record each time as it record 0sec video each time i say "record that"
