How fast must my internet connection be...
« on: February 15, 2006, 01:11:52 pm »
...for me to use XBox live?

Right now I can use it at an upstream speed of 50 kb/s.  Is this fast enough?

50 kb/second is my UPSTREAM time!  Meaning that if I'm downloading something, it goes at 50-70 kb/s, but on P2P and other ideal situations, I can go at 600kb/sec.

Geez...

And YES it's DSL...

On a side note, just upgraded to 1M up; 9M down...
Not as sweet as the T3 we used to have at the shop but, it'll do.
