Fast Connection Needed For GTA Online (Is my net too slow??

2 replies 2477 views Edited Oct 11, 2013

Alright, so I finally got online yesterday on GT Online. I played for a couple hours straight through, all around fun(Won that first race, could have lapped them lol -  well it helped that they kept crashing into each other). I liked how it integrated other noobs with me and whoever took point in the game was the person in the story mission cutscene part.


Anyway, to my question.

Do I have to have a fast internet connection to do GTA Online???



I ask because I was at my work place when I was playing for those couple hours. The speed we use is maxed at about 20mbps.

My home conneciton is at 1mbps. Really big gap.


From the start of GTA Online, I could never get online, always said Rockstar servers are unavailable - after that I give up till another day.

But at work, I was surprised the **bleep** work, no problem whatsoever. Created my character and had a bit of fun.


So, am i going to have to invest in a faster speed internet - it's not that big a deal, or should I just keep trying to get on by going to Story Mode then back to Online mode over and over?


Also, anybody else having the same problem?

Found this, will try it when I get home from work. 

I'm not sure if those title updates have been downloaded, I'm on Playstation Plus, I've noticed a couple patches downloaded automatically so probably, will also check when I get home.


Also, anybody else having this problem?


If this doesn't work and their latest update doesn't work, I'll just patiently wait it out. But if there is something I can do, I'd like to do it.

I have Time Warner Cable. 18mbs Download and only 1mbs Upload.

Mine plays fine. I'm a big Online Multiplayer fan, it's all I play.
Between GTAV, The Last of Us, Uncharted 3, Dirt 3 and various others, it's definitely enough. And often my lil bro is on a second Ps3 playing with me in the same house.

What speeds do others have? I'm curious.
