I can't imagine "needing" to upgrade, but then again, if the opportunity is available and you have the cash why not I guess? lol

you should definately upgrade. those numbers they look pretty terrible... I live in an Anarctic research station and my Internetz does: 55billion-trillion 44thousand 25Mb/s DL and an upload of 90 trillion Mb/s for only 3$ Canada. A year. here is why I think your post is pointless. ONE: if you can read what you just typed, and understand what it means, then wtf are you asking us? Is 10Mb/s bigger than 7Mb/s? YES, thats how it works. So if you do upgrade, your connectivity will improve. Yes, we are learning, here people. This is a learning hospital. THW0O: why does it matter how much you are paying for your intur-n3tz? Do you really think that paying more improves performance? Like I said, I pay only $3... Anarctica... research station. THR33Z: Just see for yourself if your internet is capable of doing what you want. Why go to a gaming forum to do your researchz? and by the way, if you really want to know how your internet connection stands up to the majority of other people's in north america, just do a connectivity test -

While almost certainly not the intent of your post.. it does come over very much as "rawr! look how good a net connection I have/can have".

I mean.. really, what am I expected to say? I have no idea what you use the internet for, and I can't imagine ANYTHING you do really *needs* more than 7mbit.

Wow, it amazes me to see how much free time you have bitch at someone . Scaredlizard, I'm new to the FH community and I ain't that great with computers. I will have more time to spend learning about my computer and FH as I am a recent amputee due to a cancer in my left leg. I'ts all good due to the fact that I'm still alive (got to look on the bright side ! ) In any case sorry for my lack of knowledge on the subject and if the the thread was dumb, I just wanted to know if a better connection would improve the performance of the game. Peace out Jack

Whatever Jessy, don't listen to him. If you upgrade, you'll see mayb an increase, but the thing is, a lot of stuff wont see a difference with. If you have the cash, may as well go all-out, but if you're slightly prssed, your current is more then fine.

Unless everyone on your connection is regularly using all your available bandwidth, all your upgrade will really achieve is buying you bigger numbers to post online.
