    I am moving into new apartments at college and have heard they have horrible internet. So my love for gaming and community leagues has inspired me to look for internet options to upgrade. Only option we have is Cox Cable. Was looking at their packages and was wondering what speed I should be looking for. I understand the higher the better but let's be reasonable i'm in college and am not going to pay 100 bucks a month for the fastest internet. Was wondering if the 18 mbps was good enough to be able to connect to people?

    You'll want to have good upload speeds as well - too often ISP's advertise your down but not up. Granted, 18 down means you probably have a decent up as well but just for future reference you'll want to consider that speed too.

    Time Warner generally offers up to 1mb up with their basic and turbo packages so if your ISP better be offering at or above that, even if its only 2mb

    Direct from TW's site...

    It's too bad it never actually gets close to those speeds, lol.

    I have TW Turbo and usually get 12 down and 1 up. I do not have any problems playing other users.
