First-Person Shooter

First-person shooter games need a decent amount of bandwidth to experience the action of the game through the eyes of the protagonist. If you like talking in real-time with other players, you’ll need a speed that can support your mission.

Role-Playing Games

Commonly known as RPGs, these games are all about decision making and endurance. Symmetrical upload and download speeds will keep you in the game for the long haul.

Offline Gameplay

Even if you play offline, you may need to download content and updates for your game online. Most speeds should work for you, although faster speeds will help you download your updates quicker to get you back in the game.

Fast Ping Rate for Fast-Paced Gaming

Ping rate measures how fast information is sent from your computer to game servers and back again—a critical part of a smooth gaming experience. Internet speeds are important for online gaming, and ping rates are pivotal to combat latency issues. With FiberOptic internet from Frontier, you can rest easy knowing your ping rate supports your favorite games and consoles.

What Are Your Go-To Devices for Gaming?

From games on a PC to those on handheld and non-handheld consoles, symmetrical upload and download speeds from a fiber-optic internet connection keep your devices steadily sending and receiving information for lag-free play.

So what exactly are upload and download speeds? Simply put, download speed is how fast your device pulls data from the server, which is important for PC gaming. Upload speed is how fast your device sends data to servers and is necessary for sending big files or using video chat to communicate with teammates on gaming consoles.

Symmetrical upload and download speeds ensure that, no matter your device, you’ll never have to worry about lagging behind the crowd.
