    Here my speed test. My download fluxes from 1 to just under 3 Mb/s. I hope my ping is low enough too.

    Mines about the same and it works just fine, so you should be good. Ping might be a problem though.

    It would work yes.

    Online gameplay might be laggy.

    I used to play on 300 KB/s download and maybe 50 KB upload.
    All worked fine.
    Had lag but voicechat was fine.

    How so?


    Also.
    XBL has a 100 ms ping limit but it still worked fine for me at that time.

    Oh good, now that I know the almighty retrodoctor feels sorry for me I no longer have shame for my internet speed.

    Not everyone lives in an area where high-speed internet is available, let alone can afford high-speed internet.

    I agree with Supr.

    I'm in a "new" part of the city and the cheapest connection here is ~3 MB down and ~1 MB up.
    It's not one of the fastest but I still pay 20 quid a month for it or something

    At my parents place it was 300/50 KB and it went up to 800/200 only a year ago.
    That's pretty much one the fastest connection there

    I have 8mb d/. 5mb up.. With an average ping of 150+. You should be fine as long as you don't share the Internet with too many people

    Where I live we could pay $50 a month for 6mbps download and...Which is fucking ridiculous. Right now we pay...I think $20 a month for half that speed.

    I dunno why or how you guys could take my comment as meaning anything but jest. Anyway, I wouldn't worry about it much. You probably don't pay for your ISP, so it's safe to say this is someone else's (parents, college) problem.

    Yes I pay for my own Internet.

    I can't afford faster Internet.
    And I'm pretty satisfied with the current speed.

    I used to get 300 KB for years and years and years

    I moved a location where I can only play on 3g from Verizon and my speeds run from 0.80 to 1mbps download and 0.06 upload with a 150 ping and I can play MW3, Halo & Mass Effect 3 online just fine with small amount of lag. I know you can run most of everything fine.

    My mobile broadband is a bit slower than your speed and I can play pretty well, so yeah it does support your speed.

    I feel you guys. For about a week I had to climb a tree in order to get a good signal on my laptop by leeching the neighbor's unsecured wifi. But now I convinced my father to start paying for internet, since we originally were using a hacked modem that Comcast deactivated. But now we officially have Comcast, $25's a month promotion and I get this.

    I've had my Xbox Slim work by tethering it to my iPhone's 3G connection. You'll be fine.

    that speed is fine, I used to have 1.5 mbps and I almost never lagged. That was even with 2 xboxes playing halo at the same time...1 computer on youtube messed everything up though.
