As the graphical prowess and overall complexity of PS4 games grows, install sizes continue to soar. It’s not unheard of for games to push 60 gigabytes, and with constant patches, it can feel like you’re downloading more than playing.
Internet speeds are more relevant than ever, with more and more individuals investing in higher tier plans from ISP’s to support a constant influx of downloads, Spotify, Netflix, and online multiplayer.
Some have even gone so far as buying into gigabit internet with providers like Google Fiber and Verizon Fios.
Which brings us to the crux of console networking:
Does the PS4 support gigabit ethernet? Can it fully take advantage of a lightning fast fiber connection?
Technically, each model supports the standard but there is a catch.
