Gaming

Hi, does download speed affect gameplay? (Ping). 

I currently have 40mbps (nbn50), and unsure if I should upgrade to 80mbps (nbn100). Thanks!

Re: Gaming

No effect at all unfortunately. You can check out forums such as Whirlpool for discussions on what RSPs offer the best pings (local or international). It seems to me pretty hit and miss with no definitive answer. Main things affecting your pings would be:

 

RSP

Modem

NBN technology type

 

And of course the destination server capability.
