    How is this possible? I'm rooted with the WiFi Tether app. Why would I lag when I'm faster than some of my friends IP but they don't lag? Any ideas or suggestions?

    Your latency is too high. It does not communicate fast enough with the servers. You will need a land line.

    You also appear to have the fastest 3G in America.

    3G ping times are usually awful. 4G ping times should be better.

    Ping and latency are how fast your computer gets a request out and back. Gaming is pretty much lots of quick information bursts being sent. Each side has to send and confirm and exchange data. When you are just downloading, one side just sends and the other side listens. It would still be 'slow' to get started initiating the file download, but once started, you're flying since one side is basically just listening.

    That's probably the total amount of data sent back and forth, not connection speed. Try speedtest.net.

    3g is probably not fast enough for anything on xbox live other than the dashboard and music. Even if your speeds are high enough your ping wont be good for playing online games.
