Re: [AZ] Moving to Arizona. Apartments with Cox? Good/Bad?

If you even had a multi-player game from the 80's it would have worse bandwidth consumption.

If you're streaming your video gaming on twitch, that's where your bandwidth usage is going... Gaming doesn't take up much at all..

When you consider a multi-player game and the fact that latency plays a huge part in a gaming experience, the game will want to send many small packets as fast as possible. Most games use UDP because it's a fire and forget protocol. No error checking, no negotiation.. Sending large packets would cause greater delays, leading to higher latency and a poor gaming experience.

For example, an average 20 minute Battlefield 3 session consumed the following:

Received data: 9.33MB
Sent data: 4.92MB

Total data: 14.2MB

So if you convert 14.22MB to kilobytes, you end up with 14561.3KB [1MB = 1024KB]. If you divide 14561 by 1220 seconds [20 minutes * 60 seconds] you end up with 11.93 kilobytes per second in total usage..

Using the average of 12KB/s consumption:
With a 250GB cap [262144000 KB] it would take you 21,845,333 seconds of gaming or 364,088 minutes or 6,068 hours of
gaming to reach your 250GB cap.

Considering there's 720 hours in an average month, it would be completely impossible to hit your 250GB cap just from gaming alone.

From what I've read BF3 is one of the "heavier" games for bandwidth consumption...

Please stop spreading FUD. Everyone of your posts is how awful cox is, how high their prices are. Boo hoo.
