      Sky Broaband base and Ps3?

      Is the Base BB package quick enough to handle ps3 gaming? I'm going to book up but just wondering whether it will be good enough to play COD4 and FIFA or should I pay the extra 5 for the mid?

      I know someone who has Base and they play online games like COD4, BF2, CCS etc and they said that they never had an issue.

      Saying that I think he configured his line himself - Which was still 2048/ 416.
      Not a single error on the line either.

      When customers contact Sky looking to take out broadband we will generally reccommend they take the Max package if they are gaming online a lot (as it has an unlimited usage as well as providing upto 16megabits speed [depending on your max line speed obviously])

      Aye then us at Sky Tech get a bollocking because the Eu was told they can receive 16mb.
      Mid should be fine for gaming.

      Like I said my Mate hasn't had one issue with Base and he games a lot.
