Thread: MTN Uncapped lite with gaming

  1. #1

    Default MTN Uncapped lite with gaming

    Hi

    I need to get a new internet contract and I'm really interested in the uncapped mtn is offering. Adsl is not an option as telkom does not give adsl support to were I live. 8ta is also not an option as they got no 3G towers in Upington.

    Can someone please provide me with pings of the following games:

    -League of Legends euw server.
    -Call of Duty 4 SA servers.
    -BattleField Bad company 2 SA server.
    -Teeworlds SA server.

    If you don't play these games any other pings will do.

    Thanks in advance

    I would not recommend it at all, let alone for gaming. I never get the advertised speeds even when I should be unthrottled (and it's not because of bad coverage because I got good speeds on the first day). Pings are 200ms to local servers on a good day.

    It's really just very inconsistent.

    Are you connected on 3G or HSPA+?
    I will test today with my cousins phone, as he got 100ping on Teeworlds the other day....
    And just to make sure, it is true uncapped (no oob rates).

    Thanks for the reply

    It's true uncapped. There are no OOB charges.

    Gaming is terrible.

    If I may ask, what games do you play?

    I play MMOs while throttled. Haven't had any problems yet.
    I wouldn't try to play any FPS games.

    Test the mtn connection in uppington never trust a coverage map. i have the mtn uncapped lite package. And play bf3 every single night. So little to no problems. But i am in dubanville so yah i get about 7mb/s constantly with a ping between 40 and 100 to local server mostly always.

    I get 3G where I stay, although it does go down to EDGE sometimes, but that's beside the point since I have had reasonable speeds on it before.

    I'm also busy download at 2mbps on usenet, reason for poor ping (I'd say the lowest I get is around 100ms, though). I'm 'throttled'.
