How would you rate this connection for gaming?

Here's my think broadband graph from today. Currently 200mb using the hub 3 only. Will be upping to 350 next month 

Just wanted some feedback on how this graph looks for latency and packet loss for heavy gaming streaming and downloads compared to some others out there.

There's no packet loss on that BQM and the results look very normal for the super hub and docsis.

I game on Wired and Wifi, and have no issues, so its a 10/10 for me.

Re: How would you rate this connection for gaming?

Looks pretty good for a docsis connection:-

- average latency holds up OK on Friday evening. I'd check Saturday and sunday as well

- the 2 or 3 lost packets are a slight concern, but mine can go a week without any and then have 1 or 2 randomly like your BQM with no noticeable impact. Are they happening each day?  Do they coincide with anything in the logs ( would assume not) 

- I'd do some dsl reports / line quality checks and tests before and after the upgrade

They can be intermittent but some slight notice when gaming heavily when the packet loss occurs. Looking into an asus router for an upgrade
