Perhaps all this working from home, that people now do, is probably the main controller of what bandwidth you actually get
That is quite true Peter, I did a test on my bandwidth about a week ago on a weekday around the afternoon and the bandwisth was around 20Mbps, over the weekend this had actually increased to 28Mbps, many thanks for your reply and also thanks to Ben for his reply on graphic settings (sliders). Wonder if they have taken a leaf from X Plane 11 whereby Visual Effects, Texture Quality, Antialiasing are Graphic Card settings and number of World Objects and Reflection Detail are GPU based. Seems by splitting them in this way that performance is better controlled but then again, I may be writing a load of bull!! :$

Nigel.

That is a very good reading you have Peter, even if you lose some bandwidth due to increased usage it should not affect your flying in MS2020!! :thumbsup:

Thanks Peter, found those videos interesting though as yet, I will not be buying for the time being but certainly hope you find it as good as it is shown in the videos.

Regards
Nigel.

That half hour of Pre-Release Beta above is great to leave on loop...I find myself watching it and really enjoying it. I’m not a beta-tester but i have found a small bug in that the Icon A5 does not have any wake behind it in the water! When they do add the wake they will need to increase the water drag a bit as at the moment it is very very slow to reduce speed after touch-down!...Two weeks to go now before i can collect MSFS2020!!!
