If you are using wifi, try connecting directly to your router.

If you are using wireless internet (i.e. over a cellular network or other wireless internet) or Satalite Internet, then you will probably have more issues like that.

Otherwise, it might just be your ISP that sucks. We would need more information to really give any good advice. What ISP? What kind of connection? Do you use a router? Do you use wifi? etc..

Or, you might be downloading something. That can often cause lag, jitter, and packet loss. By the way, it's not "pocket loss", it's "packet loss".

Most of the time when I have lag/jitter problems its because someone else on my wifi network is downloading large or multiple files.
It helps most of the time to "reset" or reconnect to my wireless connection
