Internet speed question

#1susandakilla19Posted 10/1/2013 3:30:49 PM
What is the difference between 50 Mbps and 60?

I plan to play games online, stream tv shows and download games off steam.

The difference is 10 mbps.

I was looking more for real world application. I did fail 2nd grade math though. :(

At 50 Mb you would download at around 5 MB per second, with 60Mb you would download at 6 MB per second. Gaming wise, there would be no difference at all when playing online, as the important thing for gaming is latency, and that is about the same for all the speeds a internet provider offers you.

The difference is 10Mb/s

Do you want us to tell you stuff like that will mean you download the latest 1D song in 36 seconds instead of 42 seconds or that you can watch streams of Minecraft at 1080p

If that's the case, don't be so fat, work it out for yourself.

Pointing out your stupidity is not trolling

One is faster. Doesn't matter much as they don't point blank show throttling policies. You may max one type of transfer and not even half another.

If your talking upper/lower case rule of thumb is divide by 8 isn't it?
