Xbox live on verizon wireless

I've had verizon wireless for over a year now and i use it to play xbox live. Over the last few months i have had problems with my connection while playing xbox live. For example when i play call of duty i will constantly go from green bars to one red bar and back to green. It will do this the whole match pretty much every game. Yet if i play on a game with a dedicated server i have no problems. I was wondering if maybe verizon was causing these problems since they would view it as a peer to peer connection?

i play a lot of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 with my Verizon Wireless mobile broadband.  I do experience a constant lag. i am usually 1 bar, sometimes 2 bars if that host is a good connection.

 

i am usually 1/2 second  or more behind everyone else.  and i still do pretty good.  I think verizons speed is there, it is just the latency of the connection.  Also, they are not NAT'ing their ip addresses correctly.  It gives me a NAT status of moderate. and I can not make it OPEN.

 

 

I am perfectly happy that i lag because without this connection,  i can not get on live at all. i live 4 miles out of town, and about 1 mile out of dsl range.

 

 

I just wish verizon would support xbox live more, maybe partner with microsoft on it.
