MTU = Maximum Transfer Unit

MTU also limit MSS ( Maximum Segment Size ) and thats the amount of bytes in each packet your pc send/ receive

MTU = MSS +40 ( 40byte overhead)

a large MTU is always faster then a smaller one, cos you need less packets to transfer a certain amount of data

However a diff between a MTU of 1492 and 1500 is almost none against low ping servers and low speed transfers
