Watching Stream in 720p?

I was just wondering what download and/or upload speed I would need to watch streams in 720p. I have 37ms ping, 2.02mbps down, and 0.47 up.

  1. You're not even close. SD (standard definition) content might require up to 6Mbps, but HD content could be 15Mbps, 25Mbps, or more! A lot depends on whether we're talking about raw (uncompressed) streams, or various optimized codecs. That's why ppl trying to stream HD content locally over wireless G (18-22Mbps being typical) often have problems, and have to move to wireless N to prevent excessive buffering.

    But even if we're off a bit w/ the numbers, there's just no chance w/ numbers like 2Mbps. Heck, you'll have problems w/ SD content in many cases, let alone HD.
