Beingthinking of changing ISP's. Seen a couple that mention Static IP address- suitable for gaming. What, if any, improvment does this give over a dynamic address? I'm on 2mb with 256 upload. Would an 8mb connection with 484 upload show any noitceable gains for gaming?

yes having a 484 upload speed will increase ping time in gaming

With regards to static IP no it wont make any difference

Thanks. So having a static IP address is of no benefit in gaming? As I I said Ihave seen some ISPswho have made a point of saying you can have a static IP address and that is ideal for gamers.

Its only ideal if you have Own Server and run it from your own computer

Or

You have teamspeak and run it from your own computer
