Each gaming platform and type of game is a little different. But you’ll generally meet the minimum requirements for online gaming with these internet speeds:
Download speed: 10 Mbps
Upload speed: 1 Mbps
Ping rate: Less than 150 ms
Keep in mind that these numbers are for a single player only, and they are minimum requirements. For better online gaming performance, we recommend download speeds closer to 15–25 Mbps per player. (Faster internet speeds will also speed up game downloads and load times).
For multiple players using the same internet connection, multiply the requirement by the number of players who would be online at the same time. For example, if you have three players in your home, you’ll need an internet connection with at least 9 Mbps of download bandwidth. Be sure to check the specific requirements for your gaming system below before making your calculations.
