Here is my banging gaming setup:

 

 

Which is literally just my work/home setup that I happen to also game on. I have fibre (100/10), but with an Orcon Fibre Pro connection I would absolutely play less like a noob (and my Team's meetings would be a hell of a lot smoother!), and with the awesome Razer gear I wouldn't look like a noob either!

My current broadband connection is Stuff Fibre gigabit Fibre with a static IP from back when they'd still do those.

 

I do have a gaming setup!  Pictured below.  The most taxing game it runs is Minecraft, which I bought back when it was still in beta.  Now I get to play it with the kids...

 

Fibre Pro ... I'm already on a Vocus/Orcon Group Gigabit UFB connection so speed/latency wise I assume it will make no difference.  But FREE Fibre Pro puts a grand back in the tech budget, right, and that will improve things!

I've got Fibre with another provider.  My main gaming setup is an Xbox Series X.  A Fibre Pro connection would be heaps faster than my current connection and would allow me to download games from Xbox Game Pass heaps faster.

Hello!

 

Currently on Fibre. My son has a pretty decent gaming setup, but my own PC could use a few perks. Don't think that FibrePro would improve our gaming much, as we're already on 300mbps and I doubt ping times would improve all that much. Besides, we don't play a lot of FPS games. The increased download speed would be appreciated for movies and TV though. 

 

Thanks!

Current broadband: 300/100 Voyager Fibre connection

 

Gaming Setup: Well...uhh...

 

 

That's my "gaming" mouse for my laptop. Would definitely appreciate a few more buttons on that mouse!

 

How a Pro Connection would improve gaming: I play MMOs and have to connect to US servers for better populations. I'd be hopeful that the increased upload speed may improve the latency to those servers.

Still on ADSL

 

Do you have a gaming setup?

 

Not really; just 2 laptops and mice so I can play anywhere

Our connection can be slow at times so there can be lags or it taking a long time to load things. Hopefully a Fibre Pro connection will speed things up

My Republic fibre. Yep, I play games. Fibre Pro would free up money for beer.

"What is your current broadband connection (xDSL, fibre, satellite, dial-up)

 

Vodafone Gigafibre

 

 

 

and do you have a gaming setup?

 

Candy Crush variant on my ipad, I had a PS3 but I'm not sure where that is now.

 

 

 

 

And a Logitech keyboard and mouse for WORDLE!

 

 

The zero is wearing off so in desperate need of a replacement there.

 

 

 

and this skungy chair which I've had longer than Himself, so over 20 years.

 

It squeaks and is a bit wobbly. A bit like Himself really.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How would a Fibre Pro connection improve your gaming?

 

It probably wouldn't.

 

But apart from the chair, I would gift the rest to my 13 year nephew, thus becoming the BESTEREST AUNTIE IN THE WORLD!!!!! bwahahahaha

Currently on 30/100Gbps fibre and my gaming 'lounge' is just next to my 'office'.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How would a Fibre Pro connection improve your gaming?

 

The fibre probably wouldn't improve my gaming (unless I get some sweet Orcon special low-pings and a 35-year rejuvenation to my reaction time?), but it would definitely speed up downloading games and the accessories look pretty fab.

"What is your current broadband connection (xDSL, fibre, satellite, dial-up) and do you have a gaming setup?"

 

My current broadband connection is on a congested 4G Wireless and this kit deserves to be let loose on an Orcon Fibre Pro connection.

 

 

 

How would a Fibre Pro connection improve your gaming?"

 

A Fibre Pro connection probably wouldn't improve my gaming and would only remove my current excuse of "It was the lag"!
