moved to Gaming as there may well be some rules you need to add depending on the Game

Re: fibre/gaming

I'd imagine you'd be fine with that bandwidth. The important thing whilst live-streaming is not to saturate your upload. I'm on ADSL2+ with a 0.9Mbps upload which means streaming is pointless for me as 360p is pretty much the best resolution I can manage. My capture device shows the highest quality 720p requiring 8Mbps upload. If the upstream is saturated you will have awful lag, with latency very high and inconsistent.
