I think it's enough, the latency is more important. Take a look here https://futures.io/brokers-data-feeds/3985-two-data-feeds-same-network.html.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

If it's 2.6 Mbps, that is plenty of bandwidth for trading unless you're doing something highly unusual.

Speed is more of a latency concern. Really depends on your physical location. Running different types of ping tests can give you clues. If it's a cable connection, looking at the diagnostic menu of your digital box will reveal the quality of your connection. You would see pixelation on your tv before you'd notice poor performance on your pc.

Speedtest.net is good for checking bandwidth. Bandwidth is important for a lot of things, but not really trading.

Pingtest.net is good for checking latency. Latency is far more important than bandwidth in trading.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

very nice... how about some tests to your TT Gateway @ CROSSLAND, that would be an interesting one to see what latency exists over that fiber network as it exits off your vendor ... better yet, get VisualRoute and map it out, curious to see what EU is like in terms of latency within their networks before the cross the ocean...
