Internet Connection SpeedFollow

After having a difficult time getting FFXIV to run smoothly, I am in the process of checking everything I can to help out. I want to check my Internet connection speed. I can open browsers and even play FFXI fine, but I understood that game could even be played decently on dial up, and isn't as demanding.

Doing a speed test with Time Warner I got a Download speed of 13521 kbps and an upload speed of 102 kbps. I have no idea if that's good or not, can someone help shed some light on how those numbers fare?

No Internet speed connection experts lurking around here?

I think right now the S/R lag is from SE's side. Probably because everyone is in the same zone. I think I also heard it said that SE is forcing a slow connection for some testing reason in this phase (not clear on that).

But I for one have been at 'yellow' connection pretty much all the time, It spikes green sometimes for a second is all.

Download speed's good but you should worry about lagging. If your lag is more than 100ms then you'll have issues. Go to to see your lag.

At this point your connection really isn't important, they are limiting everyones connections to the servers, I don't think i've seen mine go over 50 send
