Really is no such thing as a good internet speed for gaming unless your on fu*king 56k. Even the most basic DSL should cover you in a good amount of games. Ping is really what matters most to online gaming I believe though. Its how quickly your system responds to the server and back. Check it here.

your biggest concern isn't how fast the internet is, you should be more worried about the ping that is what is causing the delay and lag in games. Most internet speeds are plenty fast enough to do online gaming today if you aren't sharing your bandwidth with anything else in the house.

Do some research about cable and DSL providers in your area that have a low ping

test out your speeds on a website like

That's BULLsh*t. I have a low a.ss ping (30-40) and get my a.ss handed to me because my sh*t doesn't register as fast as theirs. (I have 2.36 KD/R and I ONLY play TDM, So don't say I suck...) There's been times I'll get in a lobby and shoot them and they'll die. Other times I'll shoot at them and it takes 6-8 bullets to k!ll them. I know if I had 20.00+ mb/s speed instead of this 2.50 speed I have, I'd have A LOT easier time with k!lling people.

Strictly speaking on FPS games. Racing games it doesn't skip, doesn't skip in Madden either. If you're playing FPS games, Speed DOES matter...If not, internet companies wouldn't be asking if you do a lot of gaming when you sign up. People can say ping is the only thing that matters but that's bullsh*t IMO. It makes a big a.ss difference. The people saying this have super fast connections and sh*t.

I'm not saying ping doesn't make a difference, but it goes hand in hand. You can't really have one without the other or it won't be adequate.





Good ping + sh*tty connection = Average speed. Give me that pign with 20MB+ of connection and I'm kicking a.ss every time cause I'll always pull host...

Ping is most important, so they are indeed right. But yeah, its better to have both still tho.

Yeah it is most important, but you really need both. Especially in a game that Requires you to transfer info faster like cal of duty.

you wont pull host even with a good connection like that, my connection is unreal, like 50+ download and 30+ upload, and i still dont host that much. i always wondered why tho. but once i do start hosting its a completely different game lol as for ping, i feel like everytime i take the test its a big difference between the last time i took it, why would that be? and is there any way to improve it? i just tried and it said ping was 17ms, and graded a b+

I never hit any lag. I used AT&T DSL for about 3 weeks which maxed with a down of 6 and up of 1 with a 40ms ping and it drove me crazy. I had been using cable for years, and downgrading to DSL was such a sh*tty experience. I noticed a huge difference on FPSs.
