I think i had to go payg for a stupid spec. I did a speed test and got some silly number like 4000gb. I used to work in a internet provider and its because people like Microsoft dont just have the odd rack mounted server in a data centre but a whole data centre.

I went to one called Telehouse in London and its like Terminator 2, rows and rows of servers all managing internet traffic,

If you use the search function and search for all Nvidia and do a bit of Googling - there’s a load of specific server side settings you need to change in the registry then i was getting ridiculous numbers on various tests.

It can definitely play AAA titles at ultra FPS and for a few pound a day works out cheaper for me than buying a machine.

Mind you I’m currently playing on my new Xbox Series S lol

Just got the new Xbox Series S home earlier - left it downloading some games whilst i popped out for some gaming headphones..

Ive got 500gb full fat fibre and its taking sooo long the games are huge - Destiny 2 is 104GB!

Ive got a few games in the queue - Microsoft Games Pass was £1 for the 1st month and there’s loads of free games.

So in my download queue -

Forza 4 - Downloaded
Fortnite
Division 2
Fallout 76
Star Wars Battlefront2
Destiny 2 - Downloaded

My hard drive is now reading at 96% full but those games aren’t bad for £1!

Used to play a lot of wow- a lot meaning 8 hours a day with a hardcore Dutch guild lol!

My healer was rated 16th on this European server - considering there must be thousands and thousands of active players on each server i was pretty chuffed with that.

Just downloaded Elder scrolls online as well

I work for company providing services to Microsoft, Amazon etc and yes they own whole data centres. Sometimes even a few data centres.

You are getting insane speeds because big players like Microsoft upgraded their connection to 40Gbps which is top of the range.

I might have a look at PAYG. Struggling to get hands on 3080 FE now anyway lol.

P/S: I also used to play WoW but back in the classic days. Grinded for hours to get High Warlord title... also been part of one or two EU first kills. (40 men raids). Those were the days.
