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.

I've heard good things from players on reddit and those on CTE

Tried it at all settings and despite having 100/10 speed it was unstable, got stable when I turned it off... :(

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?

Played this morning and didn't notice any problems but didn't notice any big difference either. Then again mostly I was defribing and dropping medi packs :)

Sam: I have 100/10 as I chose not to get 100/100 as I don't use upload that much and the price difference was preposterous! ;)
