    Default Internet service providers

    Hello all, I recently moved into a new apartment and need a new ISP. It's a one bedroom apartment and I would like to know what internet speed you think I will need/who I should go with for best latency. Right now I have time warner cable with a nice 50/5 for 35$ a month or fios for 50/50 for 50$ a month. Will the lower upload speed make a difference during online gaming? Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Upload speed will only affect your gaming if you do a lot of uploading at the same time, I.e. Twitch or Torrents.

    imo you can never have to much internet on either end (upload or download)

    either of them will be fine. but since you have a choice, ask around and see which isp has better service. you could have the worlds fastest speeds but if is always going out, it pretty much sucks

    I ran sky on their lowest at 800KBS download and something petty upload wise. I never lagged. Never.
    Be careful of those sites like moneysupermarket or whatever the heck sites try and find you cheap deals.
    It doesn't take into account whether you can actually get it or not.

    I do make signatures as practice material at this time, leave me a PM.

    a 50/5 would be my suggestion.
    I have heard too many complaints about Fios.
