I just arrived to Canada, and I'm thinking about using Fizz, how's the internet for gaming, and how's its actual download / upload speed (going for the 400mbps).
this dépenses from the games, fizz is using the Vidéotron infrastructure therefore the speed is there, you will not have any problem for the ping you are around 15ms not bad at all, but for some games this can be border line, if you want to have a lower ping you should consider the ftth which is offer from a different provider.
Speeds are excellent all day in Montreal for me, though what you really want in gaming is low ping, and that doesn't so much depend on your internet connection, but how far you're from the server you're connecting to.
Montreal in general has pretty good ping across the east coast, so I think you'll be more than fine with whichever speed package your choose.
Here I have 30mbps done no games on the internet
Sorry, can't help you with that, I'm not a gamer...
Sorry I don't even have Fizz internet at home... I'm only a mobile user
Paying ( 50 bucks a month ) for 200Dn/30Up
Consistent speeds (getting between 220-230 Dn speeds, and 28 Up), with a latency: unload between 12ms and 13ms, load between 55ms and 58ms)
@Bux remember to get a referral code, before subscribing!
I don't game much! Sorry.
Forgot to say that the speeds from above where taken on wifi.
Have a nice day!
This! Ping has certainly the strongest impact on your gaming
Thank you all for your replies.
If you eventually decide for Fizz, let us know how your gaming is!
I totally agree with you about the importance of low ping for a smooth gaming experience. It's true that having a fast internet connection is great, but when it comes to gaming, the distance between you and the game server also plays a crucial role.
Fortunately, in Montreal, the overall ping is pretty good, especially when connecting to servers along the east coast. So, no matter which speed package you choose, you should be more than fine for gaming.
Having a reliable and stable internet connection with low ping ensures minimal delays and lag during gameplay, making your gaming sessions much more enjoyable. It's always a relief when you can focus on the game itself without worrying about connection issues.
Let us know in the future the ping you will be getting.
I totally agree with you. Great speeds are great, but when it comes to gaming, a low ping is a real gamechanger. It depends not only on your internet connection, but also on the distance between you and the server you connect to. I remember reading reviews at https://casinosanalyzer.com/online-casinos/lemon.casino and choosing a game and the internet speeds were so fast that it was impossible to play.
Fortunately, Montreal usually has a pretty good ping for the east coast. So no matter what speed package you choose, I think in terms of gaming performance it will be more than fine.
@klokeer thanks for the info.
