Decent dl/up for gaming?

#1Deathx113Posted 8/25/2013 6:10:46 PM
I'm a pc newb but is this decent for gaming or will I be experiencing a lot of lag?

Side Q: Whenever I upload something it tends to upload at 1 mb/s and my downloads are almost always 2 or 3mb/s, so what does that 21mb/s really mean?

Thanks haha

That website lists your speed as megabits. When you download something your browser lists your speed as megabytes.

22.8 megaBITS = 2.85 megaBYTES

Only your ping matters for gaming, any broadband connection will have enough bandwidth
