Best Broadband services for gaming streaming, and University Students

hello i am a student and don't have any experiences with internet providers so was wondering what are some of the best services you could buy and for how much? going to have to switch from VM with all the issues and zero response or acknowledgment for a fix, so as gamers were being ignored because all VM care about is speeds and not quality, thank you for any help you can provide 🙂 I'm currently on the Fibre 100 package with VM rn

Unsure what you mean, 100Mb is more than fine for gaming and 200 would be for those who do constant downloads, are you facing an issue with your broadband or something?

Re: Best Broadband services for gaming streaming, and University Students

My guess would he is talking about the latency, making online gaming impossible. I have the 500mbs package and it's unplayable. The link below shows how my latency spikes from 9am till 11pm.

I imagine he is talking about the high latency, making gaming impossible. I have the 500mbs package I cstill cannot play online games. The latency between 8am and 11pm can be seen here:

Think he's talking about latency/ping mate like the rest of forum but sure feign ignorance.

Customer service is a complete joke.

Network capacity is a joke.

I actually regret disconnecting sky last year.
