satellite internet question

Jun 14, 2006
  1. is there any way i can use my direct way pro to play broodwar online?
    my dial up only connects at 28K but suprisingly plays pretty well most of the time but some of the time its awful and ends up disconnecting, this aggrevates me when im owning someone and i disconnect.

    Almost every satellite company I know offers satellite broadband. Contact them for service and equipment requirements.

    Downloads are fast, uploads are slower.

    Check the games area of places like satelliteguys, dbstalk, or avsforums. I've been reading there that sat. connections are unsuitable for online gaming because of latency issues. I have no idea what that means, but if you peruse the threads there, you might find your answer.

    They say, also, exactly what you have noticed, that dialup works better for gaming.
