Gamers all over the world face a common dilemma, how to find the best internet connection with maximum download and upload speed and minimum ping rate. Finding the perfect blend of price, speed, and quality is a challenging game on its own. Being an enthusiastic gamer myself, I have faced this issue of slow and low-quality internet service several times. Therefore, in this guide, I am going to walk you through various factors that you need to consider when purchasing an internet service for the sole purpose of playing games. After that, we will discuss some of the best internet service providers who are known for delivering high-speed internet and value for money. Finally, I will enlighten you about the practices through which you can make the most out of your internet connection. So, without further ado, let us dive right into it.

Factors to Consider When Purchasing an Internet Service

Internet Speed and Quality

For online games, you want a fast internet connection with maximum speed and minimum ping or lag time. Thankfully, the days of dial-up internet connection are behind us. With the advent of fiber-optic lines, you can get a connection that is incredibly fast and stable. When it comes to online games, the quality of the connection matters a lot. Therefore, I highly recommend getting your services from a renowned service provider.

Ethernet Cable vs. Wireless Router

When playing online games, the Ethernet connection is without a doubt a better option than a wireless one. This is because the Ethernet cable eliminates the lag time and provides a direct connection to your gaming platform. Sending signals through airwaves opens doors to other instances like multiple connections or low-quality signals, etc. In addition to this, when you connect an Ethernet cable to the gaming platform, the download and upload speeds improve significantly, ultimately giving you a better gaming experience.

If for some reason, you cannot connect an Ethernet cable, there are several high-quality wireless routers available in the market that consistently provide good quality signals to your gaming device.

What makes fiber-optic connections a better internet service?

To enjoy an exceptional gaming experience, you need to install an internet service that is beyond amazing. This is where the fiber-optic connection comes in to deliver that sensational experience to you. The infrastructure of this particular internet service is different from all other connections available in the market because it is delivered through fiber-optic lines, which is, practically speaking, an instantaneous service. However, this internet service is not widely accessible and you need to check its availability in your area.

Top Internet Providers for Online Gaming

Here is a shortlist of quality service providers so you can easily compare their services and choose the one that best suits your needs and requirements.

  1. Spectrum Internet

Apart from the quality service, Spectrum offers various packages to its customers to facilitate them in the best possible way. So, Spectrum Internet, is without a doubt, one of the best options for an outstanding gaming experience.

  1. Verizon FiOS

Verizon FiOS is a service provider that brings internet connections to consumers through fiber-optic technology. The company claims to deliver equal download and upload speeds so that customers can play games, stream HD videos, and download files uninterruptedly. Just like Spectrum, Verizon FiOS also offers a variety of packages to its customers.

  1. AT&T Internet

AT&T is well known for its consistent speed and quality service, a combination that every gamer needs. With internet speeds starting from 15Mbps, AT&T is widely available throughout the nation and offers premium services to its customers, especially the ones living in Maine, New Hampshire, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

How to make the most out of your internet connection?

Here are some tips you need to adopt right now to improve your internet speed and stability.

First of all, choose a provider that offers fiber-optic service. Secondly, analyze the provider’s actual speed and the claimed speed so that you know what you are paying for. Thirdly, use Ethernet cable whenever you can to maximize your download and upload speed. Lastly, choose a computer that has a solid-state drive so that you can load your data instantly. Keep all these factors in mind and you will be on your way to enjoy quality internet service.

Louis Vuitton artistic director and Off-White founder Virgil Abloh died Sunday in Chicago, Ill, after a private 2-year battle with cancer. He was 41.

In 2019, Abloh was diagnosed with malignant primary cardiac angiosarcoma, an extremely rare tumor of the heart.

His death was announced in a tweet by luxury group LVMH and the Off-White label on Sunday.

“We are all shocked after this terrible news. Virgil was not only a genius designer, a visionary, he was also a man with a beautiful soul and great wisdom,” Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive of LVMH said in a statement.

The designer was the first Black man to head a major European fashion house when Louis Vuitton named him as menswear designer in 2018.

Abloh graduated from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering. He received his Master of Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology in 2006.

He first gained fame in the mid-2000s through his affiliation with rap producer Ye, formerly Kanye West, after the two met at a Chicago print shop where Abloh worked.

Abloh interned at Fendi in the same class as Ye in 2009. He worked in Fendi’s Rome, Italy office, where he and Ye began to collaborate on designs.

In 2010, Ye appointed Abloh as creative director of his DONDA agency. In 2011, Ye hired Abloh as the artistic director for his and Jay Z‘s album Watch the Throne.

Abloh founded his second fashion house Off-White in 2013. He launched Off-White’s women’s wear line in 2014.

In 2018, Abloh designed a custom Off-White gown and veil for Hailey Bieber‘s wedding day. On the veil, he included his famous quotation marks design around the words “till death do us part”.

In 2019, LVMH reported a 20% growth in sales attributed in part to Abloh’s appointment as artistic director.

N.C.’s Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson says straight people are superior to LGBT+ people

North Carolina’s Republican Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson insists straight people are superior to LGBT+ people because heterosexuals can reproduce.

Robinson made the comments while speaking at Berean Baptist Church in Winston-Salem on November 14.

Ron Baity, the church’s pastor, introduced Robinson to the congregation, saying he was “a breath of fresh air here in North Carolina.”

Robinson, who is running for N.C. governor in 2024, said homosexuals are “what the cows leave behind.”

He also referred to LGBT+ people as “maggots” and “flies” and he called homosexuality a sin.

Robinson told the congregation that homosexuality serves no purpose in God’s plan.

“If homosexuality is of God, what purpose does it serve? What does it make? What does it create? It creates nothing.”

Robinson made headlines earlier this year when he called homosexuals and transgenders “filth,” and said teaching LGBT+ curriculum in schools was “child abuse.”

He said “there’s no reason anybody anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality — any of that filth.”

“And yes, I called it filth, and if you don’t like that I called it filth, come see me and I’ll explain it to you,” he said in a leaked video.

In response to the controversy, Robinson told the News & Observer:

“We are talking about this kind of filth being spread in our classrooms and being spread to our children… My personal beliefs and spiritual beliefs about homosexuality are not pertinent. I will fight for folks’ rights to be secure in their persons every day that I’m in this office. But we will not allow it to be spread to classrooms and to children.”

LGBT+ rights advocates protested outside Robinson’s office on Friday, and activists read a list of names of transgender people who were killed this year.

Officials in Lubbock, Texas have not charged a married man who fatally shot his mistress’ ex-husband during a child custody dispute.

Chad Read’s widow Jennifer Read released cell phone footage of the verbal altercation that led to Read’s fatal shooting.

In the video, 54-year-old father Chad Read is seen arguing with his ex-wife Christina Read’s new boyfriend Kyle Carruth.

Carruth is heard telling Read to “get off my property.”

Read was there to pick up a son he had with ex-wife Christina Read.

At one point, Carruth went inside the house to retrieve a rifle while Read continued arguing with Christina Read outside.

“Where’s my son at? I’ll go get him. I’m supposed to have him at 3:15,” Chad Read is heard telling Christina Read. “And you’re playing games telling me that I can pick him up at six? I’ve already got the cops on the way to your mom’s house… Because that’s probably where he is.”

Then, Carruth emerged from the house with the rifle and the two men briefly argued on the front porch.

Carruth fired a warning shot at Read’s feet before firing two shots into Read’s chest, killing him.

According to Jennifer Read, Carruth was angry that Read threatened to expose his extramarital affair to his wife, Judge Ann-Marie Carruth whose jurisdiction is the 72nd District Court in Crosby and Lubbock counties.

Through her attorney, Jennifer Read released a statement along with her cell phone footage.

In an affidavit, Jennifer Read accused Christina Read and Kyle Carruth of engaging “in a conspiracy” to murder Chad Read to silence him.

In a Facebook post, Jennifer Read wrote:

“Please share. Make this go viral. Does this look like a man in fear of his life or the life of others? Look at that smile. He is a cold blooded murderer.”
