What speeds do I need for streaming? #
To get the best possible performance, you generally want upload speeds at least as fast as the following:
- 5Mbps is preferred for HD streaming.
- 25Mbps is preferred for 4k and beyond streaming.
What’s an acceptable ping (or latency) for streaming? #
If you’ve noticed on your Speedtest results a high ping number this means there is latency in your connection.
Here’s a rough guideline:
- Winning: 0-59 ms
- Live: 60-129 ms
- Struggling: 130-199 ms
- Game over: 200+ ms
