Is this kind of the norm for online play, or have I just gotten unlucky playing with people that live super far away from me, have bad connections... or both?

the lag issues, as far as i know you cant do much about, just try and figure out a way to work around it i guess...as for the mic issues, using things like AIM and Skype greatly help with this if you really want to have communication...PSN text chats are always there, but are a bitch to use at times.
I reserve my right to feel uncomfortable reserve my right to be afraid.
I make mistakes and I am humbled every step of the way.
I want to be a better person. I wanna know the master plan.

I never play with randoms anymore, only with people I know, and ever since, my online multiplayer experience has been so much better.

I haven't really noticed "lag" but, the audio chat is unbelievably terrible! Like McLovin stated above, you only get every couple of words ... that's worthless! Any tips/tricks to make this better other than an external chat client?

Also, in case anyone didn't know, whoever hosts the game is going to get very little lag, if any at all. It's the same with BL2, too. I remember when me and my friend took turns hosting, so it felt fair. :3

I'm leaning toward not my problem (or my friend's problem). We have been friends since grade-school and play frequently together. We don't typically have these types of issues. We are both NAT Type 2 and both have good ISP connections. We also both use the official Sony Wireless Headset. The day before we played BL, we were enjoying some Awesomenauts with flawless chat/connections. The only other game we've really had issues playing was Dead Nation; those issues were with dropping connection while playing the DLC though... chat was always perfect.
I've never had any problems connecting with anyone or hearing them on Borderlands. Perhaps it is your connection or mic?
IDK, we'll give it another go and see how it turns out. We'll also try swapping the host to see if that makes any difference. Thanks for the replies fellas.

Well, we are now using Skype. My buddy uses it on his Nexus 7 tablet and I have the Skype app for my Vita. Works quite well.

I have NAT 2 with my ps3 under dmz.
