Fifa - A new theory what is causing the LAG

OK I have been following a user called JIO22 on the plusnet forums as he was suffering similar lag issues in Fifa.  He is now resolved as he has moved to SKY and is very happy ( he has been posting on this issue for years)

 

http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,108016.864.html

 

Reading the post it seems that the exchange uses different kit Huawei MSAN compared to BT using Fujitsu MSAN.

 

This could be the problem we are all experiencing.

 

Please dont lock this - as this is a NEW valid point which could be causing the lag...

How do you propose to prove your theory?

Re: Fifa - A new theory what is causing the LAG

To be honest, I think it's going to be so difficult to test or prove anything here.

 

Your traffic passes through many, many devices before it gets to your ISP (far more than you would realise).

 

Fibre is different - Sky/Talk Talk and BT Retail use exactly the same Openreach exchange equipment (i.e. there is no LLU FTTC exchange equipment). There is an optical termination card (where the fibre from your cabinet connects) and then a Layer 2 Switch (GEA Ethernet Link) which is essentially a handover point for the BT Wholesale 21CN network (ISPs like BT Retail, Plusnet etc.) and the ISPs with their own backhaul (Sky/TalkTalk).

Re: Fifa - A new theory what is causing the LAG

Oh I see... its just another theory why some people experience and not....

This guy was suffering for years and this switch resolved his issue - albeit it was from TalkTalk ADSL to Sky ADSL (not fibre)

I am just wondering is this possible and maybe could be a cause and worth trying to change ISP?

I feel like everything else has been looked at and this is my final/last hope to play this game lag free?

Re: Fifa - A new theory what is causing the LAG

Have you tried doing some wireshark captures?

 

This probably won't tell you where the problem is, but it could show why you're having a problem. BT Retail would then need to look at the data to figure out where the problem is in the network.

Re: Fifa - A new theory what is causing the LAG

I haven't used wireshark - can that capture PS4 fifa data?

Any guides I can follow

I am willing to try anything to help.

How would one get the captures to BT?

You would need them to get one of their network ops guys to look at it - this could be a challenge 😞

Re: Fifa - A new theory what is causing the LAG
