Video Game Bandwidth

Now that you’ve picked out your ultimate collection of video games, how much bandwidth is required to stream them without having hiccups and interference?

Online gaming for one connected device requires a minimum of 25 Mbps over cable or fiber. If you have two gamers in your home, you're looking at double that requirement for a minimum of 50 Mbps. Multi-player gaming and streaming HD on multiple devices can easily require 300 Mbps for fast speeds.
