Xbox Live Gaming and Fibreoptic

I have moved onto Fibre from Reg bb to see if it improves my online gaming/Xbox live. Has anyone done this before and has had good results with doing so ? Lower Pings etc

Pings are usually a bit lower on FTTC but unless you're a superhuman you probably won't notice the difference.

Hi buddy
I've got two boys one has the Xbox one the other has a pc .....
They both stream 1080p videos from YouTube on their iPads while playing COD3 and CS-GO and I can Netflix in the front room with no lag or buffering......
So is it worth the upgrade....
Definitely....

I'm finding it far better on xb1 and 360.
End up being host on a lot of games of Call of Duty now so it must be ok  Grin

Considering BlackOps 3 has not been out of my Xbox one since last November this is even more comforting news to hear. I am getting so fedup of seeing "Connection Interupted" in the game though and then Lobby crashes and the Laggy games. This happens several times a day

Yeah, I was in same boat.
Also agree with another post above you can stream off Youtube/netflix/twitch etc at same time and not suffer.
In a nutshell, it's a glorious investment for gaming :- )

Re: Xbox Live Gaming and Fibreoptic

Has anyone moved onto Fibre from Normal Broadband ? and if so how long did it take to see a difference ? I have been on Fibre now since Friday the 4th March and i have just tried to play a game of Black Ops 3 and the Lag was worse than ever. I had to Turn the Xbox off in the middle of the game it was that bad.
