Re: G.fast upgrade today.


[re: adslmax] [link to this post]
 
Definitely not.
The vast majority of the 4k HDR i watch on Netflix and Amazon could easily fit 2 concurrent streams on a 40/10 service with room to spare.

80/20 can run 4 or 5 4k HDR streams most of the time.
At least 3 streams no problem at all.

In reply to a post by adslmax:
What about UHD 4K streaming online for two TV's at the same time, might need faster than 80/20?
No, it won't. I've streamed 3 at the same time with no buffering on an 80/20 line (that usually returns around 70Mbps on a speed test). Usual 4K stream is ~15Mbps, sometimes up to ~20.

The only time I've ever come close to 40Mbps was the BBC Wimbledon live 4K trial on iPlayer, and they admitted later that was because they hadn't got all the bugs out of the live compression algorithms.

The main difference may be in file sizes for downloading games. With higher speeds it would come down faster but other than that I doubt you would see any benefit out of anything above about 20Mbps.

It has nothing to do with speed. Seriously....... Once the game is downloaded the console does the hard work. The Xbox Live system uses a maximum of 5meg when gaming.

Some confusion there. Your Xbox would still generate 4K at 120fps if you unplugged the ethernet cable altogether. smile

Those frames are generated locally. That's why it's got the fancy GPU.

A multiplayer game (vs single player) uses some bandwidth, but only enough to exchange player position data and the like... usually small, and display resolution has no bearing.

Indeed - the console does not need high speeds, if it did then a large proportion of their customers would not be able to do 4K. Game downloading is faster with higher speeds but game play requires pretty low bandwidth. The only time this is different is if the game itself is hosted on an Internet server and streamed to the device but this is not how the new Xbox will deliver.

Mate,

you are obsessed with line stats and figures, every line will be different, only way to know the real speed is to have it enabled.


He's had it installed before!


He hasn't.

He's made a number of G.Fast orders but cancelled it every time, never once getting as far as the line going live to see how high it syncs.

If i recall correctly the last order he tried to place was refused by the ISP because of his previous time wasting.


I'm genuinely puzzled. He has lots of posts on kitz at the start of the year of his line stats with his g.fast service with 'Green ISP', etc, etc. He managed to get out of the contract with them to save money.

The truth of the matter is that Max tells fibs.

At one point this forum was awash with posts about his FTTPoD order with Cerberus ... they eventually created an account just to make it clear he was fibbing.

Sad, but true.
