Re: How much do Xboxes need.

So i looked at the games that are listed on the "Ellacoya traffic management database" thead and XboxLive is listed.
Does this mean that it is not thottled down to 2mbs?
What does being on the Ellacoya traffic management database thread mean?

Re: How much do Xboxes need.

It means that the traffic is in the highest priority on the network giving you the best experience.
the 2mb traffic limit is how much of your bandwidth is available to game not the priority.
I suspect that 2mb will be fine for 2xbox's.
If you ask nicely you may be able to trial unlimited for a month to see if it suits your needs.

Re: How much do Xboxes need.

should be fine to run 2 xboxs with 2mb down. gaming uses next to nothing on the bandwidth front. if any speed cap is to be reachd your more likely to hit the 448kbps upload  with 2 xboxs than the 2mb down.
i know people that are not on PN but live in my street  which gets 2500-3000kbps and they have no probs with such low speeds running mutleputle xboxs an (cough ps3's)

2Mbps will be more than enough for XBOX Live.
Bear in mind that the 360's were built when lots of people were still on fixed rate products and that sort of thing.

I'll sell you my original 60GB model ASBO.
You have to get it fixed mind you, but there seem to be more and more companies offering 100% success rate!
