    I don't think it'd be too much of a problem for gaming but your actual download speed might be a bit low

    You should definately be good with that as my boss owns a farm and lives in the middle of scenic nowhere and he only gets 1 mbps and he sometimes he has good days and sometimes he has bad days so 6 should be good.I use to have 10 mbps broadband and have just recently upgraded to 60 through a shit hot deal from Virgin Media

    When I had DSL, I was operating at 6mbps down, 1.5 up. It was sufficient for gaming.

    6 megs is more than sufficient.download and upload speeds arent the most important things when it comes to playing online without lag.i had friends with connections 4 times faster than mine on rainbow 6 who couldnt run a lag free room.

    Fuck me running. My phone has faster internet than that. Lol.

    But yeah...6mbps should be sufficient for you to play online. The only thing it may affect is how long it takes to download stuff from the PS Store.

    My neighbor uses the free WiFi that comes with our housing and it's less than 6mbps and he can play online just fine usually.

    Keep in mind though that you might want to make sure that when you're playing online, nobody else is using your bandwidth (other PCs, wireless devices, etc.) in the house.

    I downgraded from 12mbps to 6mbps a few months ago and I really can't tell a difference while i'm playing online.Downloading from the PS store takes longer now but it's still not that bad either.

    go to pingtest.net to test the quality of your connection,the site tests your latency,jitter and packet loss,these things matter more than a super fast connection.the site will give you an overall grade and let you know if your connection is good enough for online gaming.

    I get 8mbps and it is easily fast enough for gaming. I think you could get away with 4mbps without any issues.

    Just out of curiosity, I checked mine to see what grade they would give me.

    B+ ? WTF? Maybe because my upload speed sucks balls.

    you probably didnt have jaxa open so it couldnt measure packet loss.

    I at one point in my life had 1.5 mbps and I played online just fine. 6 is more than enough
