    That's enough if you get the full bandwidth. But the problem is, when you get a 300kbps speed(usually 512), you really get only 100kbps max. If you get 1mb speed then your actual speed goes about 260kbs max. The service providers mislead you with speed, b/c they highlight max bandwidth but it is always SHARED among many people.

  • Most LIVETV and LIVE video requires around 500kbps and above

    to support normal video streaming, better quality when broadband speed is higher of course

    For example:

    Instructions on SopCast / TVU Players

    SopCast Player

    Minimum broadband internet speed of 500kbps

    1) One time downloading of SopCast software (from www.sopcast.com) required.

    2a) Works fine on Internet Explorer after the downloaded software is installed.

    2b) For it to work on Mozilla Firefox, you will need to download a plugin. Click here for the instructions.

    3) Refresh this page after installation.

    4) Wait for couple for minutes for the buffering to end.

    TVU Player

    Minimum broadband speed of 500 kbps. Click here to download TVU Player

    I have 256 kbps and it isn't enough for me.

    i have to wait for youtube video's to load and so on.

    I would recommend a minimum 512kbps internet speed.

    Otherwise browsing sites such as youtube.com isn't very nice.
