Currently have poor internet and feel like this is a handicap, so decided to get an upgrade and was wondering if this will improve my connection and play?

So question is, has anyone upgraded there internet recently and did it improve your connection on fifa?

    Ive had really fast fibre and the most basic in the uk and moved house in between and the delay is equal on both. So no it doesn't its EA's servers fault.

    Of course it does. Low ping = faster response times. Upgrading your internet from 5-15 up/down to 50+ up/down won't do much unless there are multiple people using the internet at the same time though.

    lol have like 2 internets now, got one that was really fast but unreliable got a disconnect or two everyday but better gameplay when working.

    Recently got a bit "slower", still fibre, that never goes down and do feel gameplay was better on the unreliable but faster internet thou. Try use an ethernet cable instead of wifi that also seems to impact it a bit.

    this is the biggest difference you can create for yourself. No matter how good your wifi is, cable is always x10

    This.

    Run a test on something like this: https://www.netmeter.co.uk/ping-test/

    What you're looking for is a low number obviously, but more importantly minimal to 0 jitter and a consistent graph with no spikes. I'd rather play on a stable 75ms for example than I would 25ms that jumps up to 120ms every 10 seconds.

    I have a 100/100 fiber with low ping on test. Still struggle in FIFA almost every day.

    Every other game on my PS4 i fine. COD, BF etc.

    But FIFA is BS almost every Day. But EA says its at my end....sure thing EA, sure thing.

    The worse your connection is, the better this game plays online. I throttle my connection down to 2.4Mb, the game plays a lot more consistent than when I'm using 160Mb. Every other game online plays fine when I use 70% of my upload, download, my connection is stable.

    I've been experimenting with different settings on Fifa for three years, using 1% of my upload/download is the most consistent experience. Their netcode is atrocious, it's still not perfect with them settings.

    Obviously gone for virgin media max package then. Doesn’t do anything mate. I’ve been BT fibre max and virgin max and exactly the same issues because it’s EAs Servers which are trash
