Re: Gaming speeds!

I can't see any reason why not.  I think I was already on 152Mbs when I got my PS4, but I know 100Mbs was OK for my PS3. In my experience download speed seems to be limited by Sony's servers rather than my connection.

I do use my own router and connect my consoles via Ethernet rather than wireless.  I'd always recommend using a wired connection for a better chance of smooth online gameplay.

Re: Gaming speeds!

Gaming requires upload speed. Yes VM have fast internet but line quality for most EU servers will have Jitter issues and packetloss.

 

VM is not the best for a gaming connection but unfortunatly its the only choice i have other than 7 meg from BT or Sky.
