Speeds of 10 Mbps and higher are good for gaming, but what you really want to consider when choosing an internet service for gaming is latency, or ping. Latency is the measure of how long it takes for your device to communicate with the server and is the main contributor to lag. The higher the ping, the more likely you are to experience lagging. Shoot for an internet service with latency below 100 ms.

If you suspect your slow speeds are the result of your internet provider throttling your connection, the easiest way to determine if you’re being throttled is to perform two speed tests. Run the first test on your regular network, then run the second one on a VPN. If the two speeds are drastically different (and the VPN test was higher), your internet provider may be throttling your speeds.

Fiber and cable internet are similar internet service types, but fiber offers a few advantages over cable. Fiber internet can deliver faster upload and download speeds than cable in most areas, and is less vulnerable to slowed speeds during peak usage times. Cable does have the advantage over fiber in terms of availability, covering 89% of U.S. households compared to fiber’s 38%.
