What is considered "good" Internet speed

and here i was thinking my 150 was good.

I’m sad :frowning:

How am I doing guys?

Very sad. I wish my internet was a 10th as good as yours.

that’s almost 500x my speed. I’m gonna step out of this thread to avoid more sadness.

The joys of slow (relatively of course) testing servers is very few will be accurate in Los Angeles. Saturation tests show that the connection is 1500Mb/s by 1500Mb/s. I really need to update to something better than a 1gig ethernet card on this rig. :o

Wow these speeds are crazy. So when it comes to patching and KI updates it’s nothing. Must be nice. I have to let mine run all night long or longer depending on the size.


Honestly anything around 100Mb/s down and 10-15Mb/s up is all a gamer currently truly needs (obviously a low latency below 30 would be ideal but meh). For full game downloads off steam, they tend to cap out well below, so I doubt I ever truly utilize even 100Mb/s.

The only time it really shines is when we’re streaming 1080p to a few tablets, downloading a game, and maybe watching or streaming our own gameplay streams.

On my connection, which was stated above earlier, i know that it takes me ~10 minutes just to upload an average 30 second clip to Xbox Live and OneDrive.

Help. I have a horrible speed. .03 download and .03 upload.

Let’s just say I love fiberoptic cables.
Pay for a 60/60 connection and usually have 69/69 in actual speed… NEVER below 66/65.
Could have a 1Gbit up and down, but that connection is like 200$ a month, so I’ll survive… and honestly I have no use for those speeds…

But actually what is most important for gaming is your latency/pingtime… I usually hit 0ms, but have seen up as high as 5ms


Is that yours?

I need to call your ISP ASAP.

I wish I could get faster internet like that. Business/Company Internet?

Mine, but I’m afraid I live a few thousand miles away from the US, so I doubt I can be helpful.

Out of the US huh?

Damn. Sometimes America’s internet sucks…

So true. Damn greedy corporations.

Glad I can enjoy most aspects of the game without internet.

Mine is nothing compared to any of these, but I really don’t experience too much problems playing online must of the time. Sometimes my connection seems to fluctuate (Like it feels smooth, then gets funky all of a sudden, and be fine a minute later) idk why that happens though. I am wired from my router to my consoles when I play…but I am using an ISP provided router so maybe its just a garbage router or something lol

How did you get this? Is this a troll? I thought Google Fiber Was the only company that gave gigabit internet commercially, and i thought you could only get 1 gigabit EXACTLY.

Is this a screenshot of a computer from inside Microsoft studios, or what?

I have 10 mbps down and 1 mbps up with ~ 80-97 % latency

I think what counts more for gaming online is the down rate.

I used to have between 5-6 down a long while ago (my old internet provider was screwing me - long story) and switched to this so I have no more lagging or booting from matches

My latency varies. On my PC, it usually reads ~60-80ms, but on XB1, it always seems to jump to about ~100ms.
