I am getting Verizon DSL High Speed Internet due to the fact that FIOS is not yet available in my location. My question is what kind of speed will i recieve with the PS3 Online set-up. I am using a wireless router to connect my playstation 3. I am wondering what kind of speed i will recieve and if i will recieve any lag????
NO simple answer!
What speed you get depends on 3 things:
1). How much you pay. You can order 1mbs, 3mbs or 7mbps service
Each represents a maximum speed, and a different price.
2). How far are you from the Central office.
(7mbps is only available if you are fairly close to the CO)
3). The quality and condition of the copper pair between your premises and the CO.
You can be next door to the CO, but if the copper pair stinks, so will the DSL data rate.
Ultimately your speed will the the lower of either
The speed Verizon provisioned you for (what you ordered)
The Highest speed the Modem can successfully negotiate with the CO equipment.
For many users those are the same, but if you are toward the edge of the DSL 'footprint', you can order 3mbps, but you the copper pair length/quality may limit you to something considerable lower that may even be sensitive to changes in weather.
Once you are connected, you can look at the connection information on the modem/router, and it will tell you the data rates in both directions from the CO.
You will recive excellent speed, I have mine on wireless and it works better then my PC on Ethernet. I havent experienced any lag so far, except for what is caused by connection problems.
