ISPs for online gaming 2014/3/18 23:54
I was thinking of contracting a mobile wifi service (either Wimax or LTE) to use as a home internet and mobile wifi for my smartphone.

One concern I have is whether such a system will be suitable for my expected usage at home. In particular would be for online gaming usage. I play online games regularly (mostly multiplayer games such as World of Tanks, War Thunder...etc).

I did use a CATV connection that was provided in a rented mansion before but found out they blocked a required port after the game client downloaded an update patch using a P2P port. I guess some ISPs are rather strict and don't care what's been downloaded over a P2P port and puts a blanket block on that port...

Anyways, I just wanted to find out if anyone has any idea what are some of the ISPs out there that are more online game-friendly and won't block my ports or throttle my speeds?

I donLt know about providers but just a tip any form of wireless connection is a no go for games.

If you play RTS itLs not a problem but in any other form of game you will be frustrated about the package lost.

Sorry for the late response, got to Japan recently and had no internet till now

Thanks for your reply and advice, I didn't realize that latency would be an issue with these pocket wifi devices.

Thanks anyway! :)
