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.

Downgrading services or cutting extras, such as Wi-Fi extenders or premium tech support, can lower your monthly internet bill. You can also try to negotiate with your internet provider for a lower rate. Switching internet providers and bundling internet with other services is another common way to lower internet costs.
