Yeah something has definitely improved, didn't know about the hotfix, that would explain the improvement, can't wait for the patch as well.

I'm from the UK and I am on Virgin Media Broadband (Cable I think). I get 20mb download and 1mb upload. My PS3 is setup wirelessly and using the connection test on that it says I get 6mb download and 1mb upload so I'm not too sure how accurate that is.

That pretty much sums up my experience, yesterday everything seemed great. Tonight, everything was a struggle, made all the more frustrating because I was going for my last few blood thirsty kills with the Swat
