Upload and download doesn't matter as much as ping does and all satellite internet providers have horrible ping due to the length the signal has to travel. You can't even use a VOIP on satellite much less play games on it. Especially if he plays FPS games.

You would be better if you have a 4g signal at the camp and get one of those wireless routers from a cell phone carrier.

Only problem is that it has like a 5Gb limit every month so no streaming movies or anything but he could play games on it probably. Plus you can get them pre paid so you only need to have it for the months you would be out there.

I have a verizon 4g wireless router for work. It's ridiculously fast. I think it would work great for gaming.

It would work OK. The ping times aren't going to be that great.

Verizon averages around 70-120ms, good enough if in a good coverage area.

My parents live out in the middle of nowhere on a lake in Florida, and they have hughesnet. It is absolutely the worst Internet I've ever encountered.

But I did launch call of duty black ops while I was there, just to look at the dedicated servers' ping. Lowest ping was about 1100. Yep, a ping of over a second.
