40Mbps download, 30ish in upload



Around the Network

83 down and up.



I'm supposed to get 400mbps download but over wifi I get like 100-150 mbps. So either way I'd be good to go.

My apartment is pretty old so only DSL for me here. I could switch to mediacom, but they want 80 a month for their internet, and I'm not paying that.



The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true. 

100/10 at the moment, but in a few months I'll be back to Australia where 10/1 is acceptable... Not looking forward to that.



Around the Network

Bandwidth means absolute shit for realtime applications. I can already hear the people with their 400mbps LTE modems complain about issues because of the lag spikes. And even your super 1Gbps fiber will not help you if you're using wifi.
The latency for streamed games is not at all comparable to the latency we have with locally played online games. Latency in streamed games affects input delay and as such effectively doubles your latency while playing. Short and smaller spikes will not be noticeable on local games because the game is using prediction, that is not possible when streaming video.

But while this sounds very dire I'm hopeful for its success due to 2 factors. Latency will improve significantly in the decades to come and the vast majority of gamers don't give 2 shits about quality or high fidelity.

So with Google Stadia announced, PSNow becoming bigger and Microsoft with its xCloud - and the apparent nature of the Streaming world with Netflix, etc.

 

 

What is your internet speed and stats?

--------

 

Mine for an example is....

 

 

I dont know whether if its my equipment that is messed up or there's something going wrong with my internet but I have Fiber internet from Windstream....


Company: Windstream
Type: Fiber
Download: 95
Upload: 95
Price: $60
No Cap

I know they say up to...but when I first got the service it was around 200 to 300 mbps for both download and upload - now...its like this hmm.



---

At my old home, with Comcast - my download was around 30 and upload was around 5  with a 1 TB Cap lol - was paying $50...

but, the server didn't wanna take my upload, it is 1GB DL & UL. for ~25$ a month (included in rent)
Sweden is awesome with bandwidth / cost

Switched to 4g now entirely. Off peak times Netflix will run smoothly in 4k, at peak times it can stay stable at 1440p with the odd jump up with weather effecting if it drops below that. I fall in the 10-50 but it rarely gets over 28 Mps. 12-28 would be the range with dips in certain whether conditions. Ps NOW ran well for ps3 games at off peak times but with lag and the odd stutter but terrible the peak 4 or 5 hours of the evening.

yeah, thats the only sad part about wireless, that it is prone to fluctuating. but 4G is well enough speed-wise and latency is usually only an issue in games pretty much.

what city are you staying in btw? i'm in the suburb of stockholm myself

if you don't know shit about how to manage a local wifi yes..
but the stuff you buy gets better all the time and crappy wifi's have started to go away since 802.11n standard and beyond.

But if you don't know why you should split your old devices that use old network standards from your newer devices then yes. then it probably doesn't matter what your WAN is capable of.
cause you screwed yourself on the wifi

100-200 mb/s down, 30mbps up and ~20ms ping on EU servers.
Enough for cloud gaming too bad no ISP in my country allows for more than 1TB per month ¯_(ツ)_/¯
