3 bars vs 4 bars connections

CowboySr

Ive really been struggling since the matchmaking fix. My guess is because the people I play with live almost exactly 1000 miles away from me and host. With the new matchmaking we play all of our games  on Tampa servers now. I never have a 4 bar connection anymore and the lag is horrible. We discuss the bars in game and they say they see I have 4 bars when I clearly have 3.  So Im wondering if the bars arent a reading of how Im connected to the host, but rather it measures the connection i have to each individual in the room. Anyone know? Why else would we see different bars for me at the same time?
