Internet speeds when gaming

Hello all,

was looking for some help with my internet my speeds are 30 down and 7 up however when I’m using my pc connected via Ethernet my speeds are what one can assume as throttle.

example; I’ll have an update for a game say around 12gb and I’m stuck averaging around 3mb per second resulting in me being sat around for some time despite paying for the speeds above.

trying to find a solution to my problem especially as updates for games are increasing in size.

thanks.

Make sure you are not getting confused with Megabits and Megabytes.

Downloads are usually measured in MegaBytes/second. 3.75 is close to what you are getting, allowing for transmission overheads.

You can run a speed test here https://speedtest.btwholesale.com/ using an Ethernet connection.
