Tomorrow I'm getting my internet upgraded to a 12mbps down/ 2 up connection, and i'm wondering is that more than enough to play hd or is that the bare minimum? And do you guys think I will have problems playing hd on crunchyroll based on the speed I'm getting?

There are other factors than just internet speed as to if you can run at 720p or not. I have run at 720p since I got on CR, last year I was running at around 10down/2up so you should be fine on that front I would think. But since there are other factors it can honestly vary.

My speed is 12 mbps down and 1.5 up, and I watch on 1080p, but as Stonewolfe said, there are other factors in it, like bandwitch, ping etc...

As mentioned before it depends on other factors too, but strictly speed talking you're more than fine with 12mbps for 720p or 1080p, where I currently live have 20 mbps down and can play everything smooth in both 1080p and 720p, even considering the fact that I'm not in the USA and my latency is higher, but you should be fine

That speed is fine, in most cases. Although almost every connection has issues at peak hours, etc.

You're more than good. I watch 720p with my 6Mbps up/0.6Mbps down connection and it streams just fine.

I can get 720p with 3.5 MBPS. I have 6 mbps, but i have to split the speed with other people. So you're fine.

Good to hear, then that means I should be able to use the crunchyroll app on both ps3/ps4 without no buffering if thats the case.
