If you’re an avid online gamer then you will be looking for a certain type of broadband package, as there are a few ultra-cheap options that might seem an attractive prospect, but actually won’t provide you with the service you need. You will want fast broadband, and really you are looking at a fibre package.
There are plenty available which won’t break the bank, and with fibre you can count on consistently quick and reliable web connectivity. You will also want a package that has unlimited usage, since hours of dedicated gaming would almost certainly wipe out any allowance you have in place.
Another important factor is latency, which you want to keep low to ensure responsive, fluid gameplay. It is difficult to assess the potential latency of a broadband package, but you can be sure that fibre packages offer something much lower than ADSL, making them a far better choice.
There isn’t one right choice for gaming broadband; a lot of the unlimited fibre packages would work well, so it’s simply a case of comparing the deals and seeing which ones provide you with best value for exactly what you need.
