Care to share experiences? Been using BT for the last year and it's horrib, barely been able to play a game online. Thinking of switching over to Virgin on either to 100 or 200 mbps packages but looking for advice.
Is 200mbps overkill, will I notice a difference to 100? Currently using 50
I just don't understand it, it's all mumbo-jumbo to me.
I used to get better online gameplay 5+ years ago living at my mum's when we were on copper. That was like 10mbps if that!
I bet that is because you're on IPv6. Get on the blower to them, tell them to change you to IPv4, you won't have disconnects. It only takes them about 10 mins to change. I'm on the 200mbps package, but speed isn't that important for gaming. I only use 70% of my upload, download because that gives me the most stable connection.
The super hub router is bloody awful though, you need to buy a gaming router, set the super hub to bridge mode. I rarely disconnect in Fifa, but I did when VM had me on IPv6.
It’s perfect for me every single day.
Guessing the 200 may be the way to go for piece of mind
You don't need to spend a fortune for a good gaming router, watch this video.
wont 200mb d/l cost you hundreds of £££££ per year?
a £300 router is expensive but its cheaper than going 200mb d/l
200mb a month with a tv package will cost me £45 a month, whereas 100mb a month with tv will cost about £35. That's £120 more per year. Will 100mb and a decent router in that 100 quid budget be better than 200mb and the basic virgin one?
Cheers for all the advice
I assume it’s the former, Mbps, if so that’s all you get for fiber service in the UK?
Yeah pretty much, that's t highest common package available, there are higher ones I think but it becomes silly money
Damn, that’s pretty poo. But I assume: regulations, infrastructure and another thousand variables limit what you can have in the UK.
I just have to say that I have a slow fiber connection and it’s 800 Mbps, the faster connections get the full gigabit (for prospective, I can download a a 60-70 GB game in about 30 minutes). My internet and phone is $75 per month and that’s including a rental charge.
that's an amazing story. one you'll be telling the grandkids, certainly.
Still roaming in here huh?
That's because you play offline
Incorrect. Still smashing WL.
Impossible.....virgin media don't have IPv6..//
Same here. Only issue I have with fifa is input delay. EA need to add more servers in different locations.
I believe there’s a website where you can check your local area if it’s good for certain internet
