Post your internet speed
Posted 26 July 2012 - 10:03 AM
My older connection was max 2Mb and I played loads of online games with it surprisingly well, so I think this connection should be more than enough. Especially if/when European servers come online.

Just for your information, I attempted gaming when Battlefield 3 came out, and before that Crysis 2 (which is the game engine that MWO runs off of.) and was running on a 10 mb/s down, 1 mb/s up connection from AT&T. Lets just say there was no point in even starting the game up, because having that little bandwidth killed any fun I might have had with enormous amounts of lag, even on servers 1 state away from me.
I switched to another provider, Time Warner, for 30 mb/s down and 5 mb/s up, then my performance vastly improved. The extra 20 mb/s down was a huge improvement but mainly the upspeed made most of the difference. So I would say you probably wont be doing any "fun" gaming with under 15-20 downspeed and anything under 5 upspeed.
My internet still isn't perfect, and I have some issues, but I can play everything comfortably unless I try playing on some server located in another country thats full of high pings. So hopefully I'll get the job at Verizon next week and switch to FiOS with a hell of a discount.
Ummmm, what was the latency on that 10 Mb connection?
I run on a 1.5 Mbps connection and can comfortably play many online games. There are two things that come to mind immediately if a 10 Mbps connection isn't playing smoothly: Either horrible netcode on the part of the game devs, or you're running something like Satellite internet, which sends packets in groups, and so leads to major lag in games.
I actually remember when we first upgraded from Dial-Up to Satellite (it was all that was available in the Colorado Front Range) online games actually got worse. Diablo 2 went from mostly playable with occasional lag to standing in one place for 2 minutes to try to pick up a pile of gold.

Are you ready...
you're going to freak...
Don't say I didn't warn you...
You're really going to be sitting there scratching your head, I promise...
Wait for it...
You know you're really not going to believe this so I'll tell you first. I've actually had ZERO problems with lag, latency, rubberbanding etc.
But here it is:
And I'm not lying either.

In game though, my latency registers between 230ms - 300ms

Hard to beat that for the 25$/month I'm paying. But these tests aren't accurate fyi. In fact they are pretty bad. In reality I average 1.5MBs download, or 12mbs, with a 100-150k upload. I'm never actually at what this speed test says I am at. If you want to see how fast you can go, the best way to do that is to file share something on Bitorrent or queue up a pile of downloads. This will allow you to much more accurately see your limitations. I've done this a lot and I've NEVER been as high as what this speedtest says I am at, not even close.
