How much bandwidth does BF1942 use when playing online? Because I was thinking of upgrading to 2mbps from NTL but that has a 30gb montly limit (I have 512kbps, no limit from Virgin). Is that limit big enough for playing battlefield? I play it a lot.
You probably wont even need 30gb, unless you play bf1942 24/7
From the EA FAQ'
each player requires anywhere from 50 to 80 KBps.
Now that's Kilobits, not kilobytes, so at max 80 kilobits divide by 8 to get 8 kilobytes per second, 480 Kilobyts per minute, about 28 Megabytes per hour. If you were on 24/7 for a whole month (assuming the month has 30 days) that makes just over 20 Gigabytes per month, no problems!
El w00to! Cool, I'll be switching to NTL soon then!
I'm fine with a 10 GB limit.
ive got a 20 gb limit and i dont get any where near that lol
Yeah, only 1-2 GB of bandwidth is me playing. The rest of it is downloading crap. The only disadvantage of having a limit is you have to be careful with your torrent downloads...
