I'm not really sure what my problem is called. I'm running Win7 with Chrome and being serviced by Time Warner. My ping is 20-30 ms, download speed is 12-14 mbps (though it's rated at 10), and my upload speed is around 1 mbps. These specs should be good enough to run any game or movie online, but for some reason I get "lag spikes" in which the video will fully load but the movie will still skip and rubberband. Online MMORPG's are the same; sometimes they run clean and without error and other times my frame rate plummets. I am running wirelessly and am working on getting an ethernet cable, but why is my internet performing poorly despite having quality "specifics" and how can I fix it?
