On wednesday I get access to the gloriousness of 1GBPS internet, it is a very slight upgrade from an internet at peak performance that gets 30 mbps.
This is the ideal internet speed. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like
30mbps is nothing running but i have 3 other family members that all stream, ie netflix, hulu, youtube, etc.
Also 30mbps is on a GREAT day normally im getting 20 or lower
God, I get 100mbps and I think even that’s too slow. I’d be dying with 20-30.
I rubber band with every game, battlefield 1 sucks because my comp is fast enough to look around but my internet is to slow to tell the game to move so when i see an enemy i literally cant do anything about it. Also tower is hard to play due to the same issue because i have run tower at 4k, ultra settings with above 100fps so the internet is the only conclusion i could find, further reinforced by i dont get the effect in my condo server
The thing im really excited for is being able to host servers again
That’s strange because you can play online with even DSL connections. You don’t really need a ridiculously fast connection. Up until about a year ago, I was gaming online on a roughly 15-20 mbps connection.
20 is the total i get but thats not counting from the 3 other devices running in the house yet
Fair enough. When we were on that slow connection I was definitely the only one really taxing it. Worst case scenario was one other tv streaming Netflix and that wasn’t often, so yeah, guess it would be worse.
Wut, I get 30 megabit per second, and I think that that’s pretty fast! I’d love to have 100mbps!
You won’t really notice the difference, the human eye can’t see more than 30 mbps anyway.
Meanwhile I lived with a 1 - 3mbps connection for 15 years
I have a 25mbps package right now, but recently took in a roommate. He streams a lot of Netflix. I notice it the most when I’m playing Rocket League and i suddenly start moonwalking around the map >_< lol. May have to bump it back up to the 75 I was at.
Oh god. I remember those days. DSL was painfully slow. Haven’t had that slow of a connection in probably like 16 or 17 years.
It really was, jumping to 150/150 was a really smart idea!
