Will 1MB BB improve Video streaming

The kids watch downstreaming music videos from Yahoo. I am currently on Blueyonder 512KB if I upgrade to the 1MB service will this improve the quality and realiability of video streaming.

Thanks for the reply.

By quality I was really referring to the fact that on 512 the picture can break up or freeze, is this likely to improve on 1MB?

Thanks to both of you.


I would be grateful for an update from you when it is installed.

I have an Athlon 2000+ 512MB PC2100 Ram and a Radeon 9500Pro graphics card. How does this compare with your set up in respect of the video and what settings could I tweak to improve performance.

Thanks for that, it doesn't seem to matter if I have a few apps running or just the downstream, the result is the same, jerky video which sometimes freezes.

I will explore the settings and see if I can work an improvement.

I will be keen to hear from Steve71163 when he has his upgrade.

Thanks for the update, will wait to hear from you after the 31st

Thanks very much for the feedback.

I think I will be upgrading to 1MB in the near future.
