speedtest.net

This will tell you your speed to the nearest hosted server. Keep in mind that what you buy from your ISP is the speed from your network to theirs, and to get more you contact them, get a better plan, and pay more.

Heres mine (wish I could trade some of my down for up):


I pay (a lot) for a 50x5 connection, and I usually get an upload of around 5.4 but I have my backups running right now.

The test does nothing. It simply downloads and uploads a test file. Takes about 1 minute.

If you have others gaming, torrenting or streaming you can and probably will experience latency, jitter and overall slowness. You can attempt to help the issue by enabling QoS on your router, if supported.

Oh yeah i meant download or upload. Like do you only need high upload for hosting or does it still majorly affect gaming too

You need a fair bit of both, but upload is normally lower from ISPs so that's why we ask. You want a good upload for sending the data to your users.

is this good enough for a 32 player game? i seem to remember each player uses around 40-50k but im not sure if thats true as the games players numbers scale out im sure so does the bandwidth requirement for both client and server.

That looks like BT Infinity or the same from a different ISP. Is it?
