    I would need to know, are you talking about 300kb/s? or 300kbps?

    300-550 kilobits per second is definately not enough to be playing online, or even doing anything online for that matter.
    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.

    As for a provider, that depends on what country/area you live in.
    But as far as speed goes. I would reccomend atleast a 5mbps(5 megabit per second) connection.

    I have a 6mbps connection, and it is just under $50 a month.
    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*

    I have 576 kilobits a second and its perfectly fine for online play.
    Get about 60kb/s on download rate and ive been playing online games for years with no lag at all. Don't listen to Prez, stick with what you got.

    Hell i even used to play an mmorpg with 56k dialup with hardly any lag at all...
