The minimum bandwidth requirement is 100mbit up / 100mbit down.
With Ziggo you will not be able to meet the 100mbit up. How are you going to upgrade?

Sorry but you need to be more specific with your bandwidth (upgraded to what?). What hardware.

Actually the min bandwidth is 100 mbps both upload and download for node and 100 mbps both upload and download for gateway when running on 2 separate rigs. If running on same rig it 150 mbps upload and 200 mbps download.

You are under spec’s. So can you improve this?

Regarding the bandwidth. I will upgrade to glass fiber and come back with the bandwith specs.

Regarding the hardware. I will use the following:

  • Two combined workstations
  • ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4 - Motherboard
  • Corsair Vengeance LPX - Memory
  • Antec p10 Flux - Towermodel
  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600X - Processor
  • Dark Rock 4 Cooler
  • Straight Power 11 | 750W Platinum - Supply (internal)
  • Corsair Force Series MP600 1TB - Solid state drive

My bandwith will be 1000 mbs down and 500 mps up per end of February

Which gpu ??

Requirements need to be met with bandwidth and hardware. Questions from community should also be answered.

Need to meet requirements

True! Upload is around 40 max with Ziggo… So maybe consider to another provider?

If you have your bandwith upgraded that’s a big plus. What about your GPU?
