Internet Speed to Play WoW Mbps?
Return to board index
I'm looking into getting internet for my new place and I was trying to figure out if the plan for 3 Mbps would be good enough to play WoW without much lag? Through Comcast/Xfinity for that plan it says "Get download speeds up to 3 Mbps and upload speeds up to 768 Kbps" I was wondering if that would be good enough for WoW? I know that's probably pushing it but the next one up is 20 Mbps and says "download speeds up to 20 Mbps and upload up to 4 Mbps" but that costs twice as much and I'm on a pretty low budget. Any thoughts?
Is it just you? If so, then 3mbps is fine for playing wow. We have a 15mbps connection at my place, but that's because there's always 3-4 computers using the internet. Between streaming netflix and 2 wow accounts, we still don't have any lag.
Hope that gives you an idea of what you need.
My connection varies between 400-500KBps (which Google tells me is 3.1-3.9Mbps) and get very low pings, usually around 30-40.
So I wouldn't imagine you'd have any issue with a 3 meg connection.
