How quickly can our unlimited Ultrafast 900 broadband download a game?

Based on a cable connection with no other network activity or external factors

Why is unlimited broadband good for gaming?

On the newest generation consoles, downloading a full game to your console can require as much as 225GB. A figure that could increase with new releases in the future and larger updates. If you’ve got a data limit, downloading games can eat up all of your allowances very quickly, leaving no bandwidth for other users of broadband.

However, with unlimited downloads players can have all the latest games without worrying about using up the usage limit or hampering others from the broadband. Each of our climate-positive broadband packages comes with unlimited downloads, so there’s no need to worry about running out of data.

Award-winning service to customers

Your Co-op Broadband and Mobile have been awarded the Trusted Service Award from Feefo, for the fourth consecutive year. As part of our gaming broadband service, we ensure that our UK-based call centre is able to handle all queries quickly and fuss-free to provide industry-leading support.

    Gaming broadband FAQs

    What is ping in gaming?

    Another factor you should also think about is the ping rate, which is the reaction time of your connection, that is also affected by physical distances and broadband traffic. Ping is important as it allows your inputs (your actions through a controller) to register faster, and therefore gives you a better reaction and input time in gaming. Players with a bad ping will suffer from more lag in their communication with the online game, though by using an ethernet cable you may see a slight improvement.

    A good ping for gaming is less than 150ms and will also mean that your latency will be low too, as the ping is the measurement in milliseconds taken for a signal to reach two devices (the latency). With our gaming broadband your ping should always be under 20ms at all times. The ping will be displayed on the results page of an internet connection test.

    What is latency?

    Latency which could also be called lag, is a delayed response time while playing games. A low latency is desired as this means you are experiencing smoother gameplay.

    What speeds do I need for 4K gaming?

    The PlayStation and Xbox consoles introduced 4K video games, and with the release of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X, the market for 4K video games is expected to grow dramatically. Currently, you need a download speed of around 60Mbps to enjoy 4K video games online. These speeds can be achieved with fibre broadband, though you can also cut your carbon footprint each month by 50kg with Your Co-op broadband.

    Why do I need Ultrafast download speeds?

    • You can download an entire hit-series in under 3 minutes, versus 48 minutes on average broadband in the UK. 
    • Downloading new games to consoles can take minutes as opposed to countless hours while waiting to play. 
    • The bandwidth for the whole home will be more than enough for all users, no matter what’s happening at the same time.
    • Remote workers have enough upload and download speed to comfortably work, or even run a small business from home, without slowing down anyone else.
