Internet Provider

Post by FranchittiFan on Wed 27 Jan 2010 - 0:12

Hey guys do you have any ideas to help me as im moving to a flat but cant find a good internet provider, BT only lets me have about 5MB speed. Is that enough for online gaming not to lag?

I had Sky which used the BT copper phone lines and it was crap. I'm now on Virgin Media 20mb which used the Fiber Optics and never had a problem. If you need to get it cheap then BT or Sky will have to be the way to go but if you can get Virgin up there try and get at least their 10mb line Very Happy

That will be the Download speed, which will be fine.

Perhaps more importantly what is the upload speed? As if that is crap you will kill people, like race-leg-end did last night lol.

I'm with Talk Talk and I think most people know the problems I've been having.
To be honest it's mainly because their helpdesks aren't that great and it takes an age to get through to anyone who can actually test the lines.

The actual service (when it works) is pretty damn good. Virgin isn't an option down here yet sadly. The closest it gets is Exeter and I'm not moving just for better broadband.

Isn't it your ping which dictates the level of lag you get?

The ping is the speed at which data transfers back and forth between the host and the slave.

You'll be very lucky to get a good upload speed in the UK. Your pings are pretty bad, mine us usually in around 10ms.

My laptop isn't what it used to be either but it gets the job done. Never had any problems with my ISP, only with my router and I caused that myself.
