Online gaming-connection speeds

  bukkaz 16:10 21 Jan 2005

For online gaming,specifically FPS games like call of Duty, is there any benefit to having a 1mb connection as opposed to a 512kbps connection given that the upload speed of both is 256kbps?

The speed is dependant on the server as well as the other people on the server so if you have a 30 ping and e1 else has a 500 ping you will lag with them,but i have played cod with both 512 ans 1mb and i havent found much difference between the 2,only reason i upgraded to 1mb was so as my lad can play as well,and we both play with no problem.

As online games depend on your upload speed and there both the same I wouldn't think you'd notice much difference
