Yes reason why I'm asking is I will play a game or two at some point but have not yet. My BB provider is WI-FI & 4G but for some reason is being put through 3G but I'm paying for 4G but the speeds are not what they were now I've been a customer for 6-7 months.

Some people I know speak of 50-60 Mb/s (mega-bits)-whilst the service I have when it first started was 23------25------30_____sometimes_+__mega-bits_per_second.

Recently though it was down to 6-7__Mbps___which is not what I'm paying for.

Now I complained to BB provider__speed today is 2 Mbps (maybe a game is going on)__???_we'll see!!!!

Few years ago it was telephone 5-6-8---Mbps____

Ping varies____but I can't speak of packet loss yet.

Anyhow, that is why I'm here to ascertain the minimum speed for all games.

Someone here mentioned 10 Mbps - or way less.

For downloading drivers I've had speeds at 500 KB/s - to - 2MB/s -mega/bytes.

If BB provider doesn't fix the speeds I move service to another provider but need to know minimum speed which I now know.

And packet loss is most important ---

Yes I do BB speed tests via Google search then a list of TEST pop up from different sites to test the speed - If they are good and accurate then all when and good !!!!

Like mentioned before I've not gamed yet online but will at some point when I get round to it.

And it seems quick speed not necessary (but I took out 4 G contract now I get 3 G speeds even though 4 G is available that is a gripe but not a deal breaker to gaming online with according to the other members here.

Latency - what is the highest acceptable just so I know?

And naturally packet loss is not wanted - someone mentioned

Still, it merits a correction for my previous statement conveying that 1 Mbps is enough. Considering Battlefield is the worst offender, perhaps a general rule that 2 Mbps is enough is more truthful.
On you're right, I misread what I had seen about BF5.
