Re: Is 1.5 mbps Fast for the ps3?/?

Jul 15, 2007
do you guys realize that when they advertise: 1.5Mb or 2Mb, they refer to Mb as Megabits?
 
1 bit is the lowest unit in binary.. it's either 1 or 0
8 bits = 1 byte
1028 bytes= 1kilobyte
1000 KB= 1 MB
 
and so on..
 
so when they advertise 1.5Mb (megabits) that's actually around 187kb/sec
 
unless of course they specifically mention 'BYTE' for the acronym MB

Is this good for online gaming on the PS3 with minimal to no lag?

Connection is not the only thing you need to factor in here. Lag can occur on the fastest connection if you have a poor CPU & poor amount of ram so testing your speed online with your PC is not always going to net you the right statistics, however to lower your chance for lag & latencgy issues you should try to stick to servers that are closer to you & any broadband connection should be fine for playing online but the recommended minimum is usually 1.5 mbps.

You're probably gonna experience some lag, just being honest.  My connection speed is:
and I'm not always happy with it.  But hey, to each their own.

I don't really like cable and plus I'm only 14 so I can't get my parents to up it up a bunch. We pay $32.95 for our connection and that's just for 1.5 Mbps downstream and 256 Kbps upstream. I may save up $60.00 from my Christmas money and upgrade our speed to 3 Mbps down and 384 Kbps up since it's only $5.00 more per month so $60.00 would get us that speed for a year and then I'd just keep giving them $60.00 of my money for the upgrade each year. Does that sound like a good Idea?
 
Also, is this "PING" good for 650 miles?

It's alright I suppose for your connection, I'm sure many people work with that speed.  Mine is at about 105ms latency for a 2200 mile connection.
