Gaming connection.

Hello,

I read in the Metronet blurb that a metronet connection is 'perfect' for gaming:

Metronet’s service is perfectly compatible with gaming consoles that have been designed for online gaming.

In my experience, this has been not entirely correct - I'm able to join games with my XBox 360, but hosting them is not always successful. Some colleagues said that the upload speed is important for gaming and that the metronet upload speed is rather slow. Would it be possible to have faster upload speeds for gamers?

thanks

Gaming connection.

Hi

You will find that Metronet connections are the same standard speeds as other ISP's on the BT network.
You *might* be able to squeeze more out of your connection by being MAXed (if your not already).
Have you done any speed tests?
The technical guys at Metronet are interested in any games that they have not identified and therefore you may find access speed restricted. They generally need the name/address of the game server and which ports it operates on.

Cheers
Bill
