Speed

Contrary to popular belief, gaming doesn’t actually need very high internet speed. If you search the internet, some claim that smooth gaming can be experienced with rates as low as 1 or 2 Mbps. But we both know that is not true. To be on the safe side, you must have a speed of 5-10 Mbps. Keep in mind that this is Megabits per second and not megabytes. The effective Megabyte speed would be when you divide this by 8. So the real speed needed is approximately around 700 Kb/s to 1.2 Mb/s. Most internet service providers offer more speed than this, so this is covered for you. This is the requirement for gaming, though. Keep in mind that the necessary speed for smooth streaming will be a little higher than this. Higher resolution videos will require more speed.

Ping

This is what really matters in gaming. Ping is essentially the speed of data sent from your device to the game server and back to your device. Ping will be higher if the game server is located very far away from you. Luckily, PUBG has set up a server in India recently. So the ping rate should not be a problem. The ping rate should be as low as possible for lag-free gaming. Ping rate of below 100 ms is considered best, but that has been a rare site in India. 

Data

This is where you might face problems. The game itself will use very fewer data. On average, you can assume that approx 50 MB of your internet data might be consumed in 1 hour. That is very less, I know. But the issue arises when you stream. That takes a lot of data. Especially when you will be streaming HD videos, your data consumption will increase drastically. For streaming an hour of gaming, you’ll need almost 1.5 GB data for HD videos. For 4k videos, this might go up to 8 GB per hour. So you’ll need an uninterrupted supply of the internet for this. Those who want to do this on the data packs with daily limit, they might be treading on dangerous territory. You don’t want the stream to end abruptly because you are out of data.

So this is it. This is our take on internet requirements for PUBG Mobile streaming.
