Almost all gaming devices these days are connected to the internet – whether you’re on Playstation, Xbox, PC or other device.
If you are serious about gaming, then you know how frustrating a standard broadband plan can be. Whether you play online for fun or competitively latency and packet loss can greatly influence your gaming performance.

Speed is just one factor to consider when choosing a broadband plan for gaming. Other key factors to consider when optimising your online gaming experience include download speed, upload speed, and lag:
