Check this out if you haven't already: https://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/news/view/new-netcode-update-rolling-out/

Note: "The High Frequency Update is by default turned OFF in this release. You will have to enable this setting to take advantage of the improved networking. To support players with a limited bandwidth connection, we support three different levels: LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH. Most players with a connection faster than 1Mbit upload and 1Mbit download should be fine using the HIGH setting. If you experience any issues, lower or turn off the setting completely."

Will try it later tonight...

I tried the high setting very briefly and just found that I was hitting sod all. Not sure if it was me or the setting. I know I'm not the greatest player but I can usually get some kills! Try and test it properly at some point. Still seem to be getting killed with a high percentage of head kills which I noticed after the recent update.

not had any problems with it and it's making bf4 fun again, what setting is your network smoothing on? when i first tried it i had to up the network smoothing from 0 to 20% as people were rubber banding a little. i know it shouldn't affect you with your upload speeds but i guess it can't hurt to try?
