    I'm switching to cable internet soon. For one I am doing it so that my ports open up for Black Ops 2, and so that I can Stream in higher quality and download games ten times faster. I was wondering if my upload speed is going to be good enough to Stream games without any ingame lag but with good quality. Or is this a bit of an over kill? :confused:

    I'd say that that speed is perfect for streaming. As long as you use ethernet and not wifi you should be able to do good quality streams. While streaming you might experieince some multiplayer lag in games but it shouldnt be anything too extreme.

    The terminology is wrong, but a 30MB connection is more than enough. It wil allow you to play games online while someone else is streaming video (Netflix / Hulu / at.el) without no issue. The upload is not a factor. For gaming you are only sending miniscule of data. Your concern will be with the download if there are any problems.

    Ethernet is the best connection as you would not be affected by any wireless interference, but wireless connections are fine to use, you just need to make sure you have the correct settings.

    Is Insight Communications still available in Indiana?

    Oh and GO HOOSIERS! :p

    Well, sadly we just got turned down by Comcast and I can't get what I need. I have 5mbps and 1mbps for this At&T connection now. I'm going to look into upgrades but if I can remember they don't support it out here.
