The minimum internet bandwidth requirement per user depends on the online activity being performed. Here are some general guidelines for different types of online activities:
Basic web browsing and email: 1 Mbps per user
Video streaming (SD quality): 3 Mbps per user
Video streaming (HD quality): 5 Mbps per user
Video conferencing (1-on-1 call): 1.5 Mbps per user
Online gaming: 3 Mbps per user
Note that these are minimum bandwidth requirements and actual bandwidth usage can vary based on a number of factors, including the quality of the video or audio stream, the number of users on the network, and other network activity. Additionally, some applications may have their own specific bandwidth requirements that differ from these general guidelines.
It’s important to keep in mind that if multiple users are performing different online activities simultaneously, the total bandwidth usage will increase accordingly. To ensure a smooth online experience for all users, it’s generally recommended to have a higher bandwidth connection, such as at least 25 Mbps for a household with multiple users.
If the RGB Nation app requires a native mobile application, then the answer is yes, it will be necessary to install or deploy a software agent on the end user devices. However, if web apps are used, then the answer is no, it will not be necessary to install or deploy any software agent on the end user devices.
Discord is incorporated into the RGB schools’ esports program as the primary means of communication for players in the Open League, but its use is not mandatory, and supervision by the League Master (Teacher) is required during matches. Discord’s Terms of Service require users to be at least 13 years old to use the service without supervision, and age verification is managed by Discord. The platform has various safety protocols in place, including a reporting system, content filtering, privacy settings, parental controls, and automated content moderation. Additionally, RGB Gaming has a Hosted Closed Discord server with restricted access and manual and automated content moderation. While Discord is used to educate students on responsible platform usage, schools can use Microsoft Teams instead for students specifically in grade 5 or lower, and no school is forced to use Discord if they are not comfortable doing so.
In line with RGB Gaming’s approach of ensuring transparency and keeping all parties informed, League Masters (Teachers) are advised to inform parents or guardians about the availability and use of Discord within the esports program, even if they do not intend to use it themselves. If any school wishes to use Discord as part of their esports program, it is recommended that they obtain permission from parents or guardians before allowing their child to use the platform. While Discord has safety protocols in place to protect its users, including minors, it is important for parents to be aware of their child’s online activities and to have open and honest conversations about internet safety.
