What is a good internet speed for Halo Infinite? There are two key scenarios in which internet speed is crucial for gaming. The first is when you're downloading a game for the first time to install it, and the second is during online multiplayer. Generally speaking, it takes a lot less download horsepower to avoid inconvenience when playing online multiplayer than it does when downloading modern games simply because of their massive install size.

Here are some benchmarks to use to determine how much internet you want to pay for to make sure you're getting the most out of Halo Infinite.

What is a Good Internet Speed for Halo Infinite?

When it comes to online multiplayer, video game console manufacturers tend to recommend at least 3 Mbps (or megabits per second) of download speed. They also recommend at least 0.5 Mbps of upload speed. Those are decent benchmarks, but if you're sharing your internet connection with other users in your home, you may want to aim for a little higher than that on both download and upload speed. That will help with stability in-game, and with loading into matches more quickly.

If you're downloading the 48.42 GB (gigabytes) required for Halo Infinite for install at 3 Mbps, it'll take nearly 36 hours at the best case scenario. If you're trying to get that total time down to something reasonable — say, half an hour — you'll need a download speed of around 215 Mbps.
