Ok so my internet renewal is coming up in November and I was thinking I can save money by going to a lower speed data plan and I saw 10 mb/s for 9.99 would this be enough for playing EQ?

Well here's a way to look at it, when the company say 10mgb (speed) what they are really doing in selling you bandwidth. Bandwidth is basically the amount of devices that share the connection. small bandwidth means you can only have a few or one device connected. So yes 10mgb internet speed is ok to play eq as long as there are no other devices connected. But in most households this is impossible (computer, cell phone, gaming system....) the more speed you have the more devices that can share the connection with out slowing down.

Thanks
