Hello,

 

Vivid is just the name for the Broadband Package now. They don't make any difference unless you go for a Higher MBPS internet.

Hi Zxdeltaxz,

 

Higher speeds will mean you can do more with your connection. Gaming doesn't typically take a massive amount of bandwidth but combined with other users in the household taking up the rest it will mean more wiggle room for you. 

If you are affected by a contention fault, the upgrades made to the network to make it ready for 200mb will increase the capacity and fix these issues too. 


The do's and don'ts. Keep the community welcoming for all. Follow the house rules
