A Google and futures.io (formerly BMT) search turned up the following brokers that offer the Rithmic data feed. Are there any others not included in this list?
  • Optimus Futures
  • Zaner
  • Deep Discount Futures Trading
  • Olympus Futures

A Broker who provides a feed must be familiar with itís backend, risk management features and have the ability to resolve emergencies ASAP.Believe me, I've had things go wrong with some other brokers in the past and it cost me money. So just because another broker, or for that matter another 100 brokers offer it does not mean you will get the right support for it. From what I've seen, Optimus has been an advocate of Rithmic for a long time and has really good familiarity with. In fact, I know from experience that they can identify my position as soon as I call them and help me out ASAP using the Rithmic infrastructure. I do like the fact that Optimus Futures chose to have a core feed that they support and not just 10 technology feeds that they vaguely know.

I have a Demo account Zen Fire, Feed is from Rithmic Paper Trading Server, it lagged so much, for CL, at 10:07, it lagged 50 seconds comparing with IB data. Is this because of the Demo feed quality or you had the same result in live account? Thanks for your sharing.

This is exactly the type of information that gets around on a public domain, viewable by many and is wrong.
First, try a Rithmic DIRECTLY not via another feed.
Also, I have checked with Rithmic, my charts (demo) and I have not seen anything like that.

In instances like this please call us and we will assist because this could be something on your end that was not set up right.
I am not saying that Rithmic is perfect, and any server could be affected, but it does not lag and there are enough people on this thread that can attest to this.
In this business a second is one too many.

I would also like to add that I was watching and trading CL yesterday during the time period mentioned, and I saw no lag whatsoever. The markets were moving fast and with a lot of volatility since Bernanke was giving an important speech . My feed is from Rithmic through Optimus, and I took a few trades while Bernanke was speaking and they executed immediately and with no slippage either. I also reviewed my charts to see if there was any sign of a data feed lag and I saw none .

There was no lag on rithmic feed at 10:07 on CL or any other time yesterday. May be an issue with your computer or internet connection is my guess.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Right on the money.
I have seen many instances where platforms freeze and/or pause where the amount of data that came in could not be handled by the net provider. If you want unfiltered data and see every tick you must accommodate that.

Could you be more specific, what type, quality, and down/up speed connection is needed?

How does a typical home broadband cable company setup of 15mbit down/2mbit up/35ms ping to Chicago fare, with a fast unfiltered tick by tick feed?

Is there benefit in going faster, or how much bandwidth can the feed effectively make use of?

This is a really good question.
I would say that most cable companies would facilitate Rithmic, but I promise to get back with what would be minimum and ideal.
Let me check with Rithmic.
@liquidcci and @lancelottrader are active and highly knowledgeable traders that could share what they use.
