    Anyone in here using a net connection from Zen playing Smash bros regulary?

    Just wanted to see if it made a noticable difference to the effects caused by lag by playing with someone who is on the same network as me?

    Would be good to swap friend codes.

    zen is an isp in england, they do broadband, up to 8mb down/ 448k up, if you have that connection you shouldnt have problems connecting to anyone. not knowing much about isp's in england it looks like a fairly good service, albeit the upload speed is a bit low, but should be enough to do wiiconnect.

    run a speed test, i dont know if theres a speedtest of choice in england, you could use www.speakeasy.net but then the connection test would be across the atlantic.

    It is a somewhat high performance ISP based in the UK.

    I have 8mb down and 832Kb upload speed as I am on a business connection. It wasn't the bandwidth that I was concerned about, but more the latency.

    Playing with someone who is using the same ISP as you will reduce latency and I just wanted to see how well the game performed when playing with someone at the lowest possible latency.
