I would need to know, are you talking about 300kb/s? or 300kbps?
Hey guys. Will 300-550 kps cut it for online play. Im sharing a wireless connection and thats all I can get. Will I lag to bad to enjoy online play?
kilobits per second
300-550 kilobits per second is definately not enough to be playing online, or even doing anything online for that matter.Originally Posted by jared19
It is equivalent to a download speed of about 30-70 kb/s.
No good, you will definately lag, and you will definately need new, faster internet.
What would u recomend? I had quicker internet when I was at home but I got married :P I play a multiplayer paintball game on the pc but I dont lag. But I guess playing more complex games will cause me problems
wow. Thats a pretty quick connection. U talking like 60 plus a month>? I got like 1 mbps at home and played halo 2 online with ease

I have a 6mbps connection, and it is just under $50 a month.Originally Posted by jared19
But, it does depend on your location i guess.
On second thought, maybe a 5mpbs connection isn't nessesary.
atleast 3mpbs will do just fine, and shouldn't cost you much.
wow if you think thats a requirment you need to avoid rural areas BADLY they charge an arm and a leg for poor service, many downtimes, and slow speeds
heck 384kbps will run you $40 they offer up to 5mbps imagine how much that costs.
10 meg is on the way but they only raise prices of old services or remove them completly trying to force you onto the faster more expensive speeds *right now they removing the 384kbps service and giving everyone a free upgrade to 3 meg but will up the price in a years time. leaving you with only three choices, dial-up, pay more or no internet*
Wanders into the unknown
I dont know if anyone offers that speed here. when noone else is online, I get 1.2 mb per second. Still not near 3 mb
