Hi all,


new here so hopefully i'm not repeating anything as i have looked to see if there have been any comments on this.

I am looking to get Xnet Fusion as i have just moved and don't want to pay Telecom for something i can get far cheaper with full speed internet.

I'm a gamer so i really need assurance that this will work and i don't want to waste the $$ on buying the hardware to find it not fast enough to use.

If anyone can advise if they have Fusion and they game if it is up to standard it would be great as both me and my brother will be moving to Fusion (He is currently with Xnet so hopefully Fusion should just work fine)

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Andy

It is up to standard as long as you don't game during peek period between 5pm-pm because thats when it lags so much you bang your head across the wall

I know i got frustrated...I couldn't play between around 5:30pm to around 9pm because the speed was so slow but other times were fine.Didn't get disconnected.Speed was fast

We don't have any problem with online gaming either. At times we have 3 computers online and up to 4 xbox360s playing Halo3 online during peak times and we do have some lag happening sometimes but overall happy with the speeds. Outside of the peak times are definitly better.
After reading a few forums, i beleive xnet is in the procces of fixing peak speeds but won't be done over night and would be done correctly.

I game with Fusion. I have interleaving off.
It's fine most of the time, the only real issue I have had is bad ping times to Australia during peak time. This was due to a problem with an Optus router. Recently it has been fine.
I get ~40ms to the Internode TF2 servers.
