Does Anyone Game Online with Satellite Inernet?(Posted by AUtigR24 on 7/8/13 at 10:35 am)
They have packages of 10, 20, and 40G per month allowance, and I was wondering how time spent playing online would chew into your overage. I know I have 4G per month on my phone plan and my wife and I never come close to going over. That includes a lot of youtube / pandora. I spend a lot of time playing ps3 / ps4 online though does anyone have knowledge on the subject?

I moved to this island in the middle of nowhere. Before I figured out how to get comcast I would game on 3G with a signal repeater. I could get about 150ms ping on that. I briefly tried 4G without the repeater and I could get anywhere from 50-200ms. It was very inconsistent. If you take the 4G route spend the money and get a repeater and antenna to boost your signal strength. It will be very playable. On a side note: gaming over a wireless network doesn't use very much data at all for your basic online multiplayer.

I almost had satellite Internet installed but I'm getting a WISP tower installed. A 70 foot tower attached to the house. I'm gonna add all kinds of antennas to that bitch too. frick limited slow Internet.
