Im trying to be serious, even though its HLTV :D
Starlink will make online gaming between NA, EU and SA possible
What is ur current ping in like east coast usa servers?
5G is going to cause a massive disruption to infrastructure with all the towers that need to be built. It's also not going to benefit the average person that much, mostly big business.
I would require a lot from the hosting side of things. So I really dont think that 5G will be the solution.
Should be slower at least in theory since the actual connection still goes under the sea from EU to NA and vice versa. Adding the additional layers of 5G infra it should be slower than normal internet ping-wise.
idk shit about it but why would it be faster than fiber?
I think broadband fiber is better than 5g. I think wired connection >> wireless.
the ping is given by the amount of time information needs to travel from point A to point B. At this time when you connect to NA servers, information travels by wire across the ocean to the NA server (which takes 1-200ms). There is no faster way to transfer information than by wire (except maybe in cases when the wireless distance is smaller than the wired distance). When they say "it's got much better ping", that is just compared to 4G, 3G, etc.
Nah, that's BS… 5G might lower latency between the receptor and the antenna, but the reach is pretty short. After that, you need another antenna (which multiplies latency) or fallback to wired connection.
5g is only an improvement over 4g. Fiber-optics will always be the best
yes pls so i can play LoL on asians servers, i will lose my mind if i get one more Polak on my team
only function of 5G is to fry ur brain and turn men into creatures that celebrates June month
There are many new features for latency reduction, such as improved QoS framework for prioritized gaming-related packets transmission, physical layer flexibility and settings for low-latency coding etc. Although latency will somewhat decrease, you should still stick to wired connection if possible
no, 5g is nothing special, 6g will be huge though
