Is switching to business broadband a great idea for gamers?

We dont need a landline. We dont have the TV. We are huge gamers and starting to stream games more and more. 

Is the business broadband a good idea for gamers? 

Can you still have all the functionality with the router you get like forwarding ports and placing into modem mode for plugging in your own router? 

Latency and packet loss are a big thing for gamers. 

Is it worth going business or sticking with residential and why? 

 

Help would be appreciated

maybe be the only benefit.

Also, remember you can't get TV on business accounts

Yeah we dont use any TV packages now. We are fine with the likes of streaming services like Netflix and Amazon.
