·HughesNet Satell..

It's back up again for now. Has anyone tried using dialup for D3 or WoW? I've heard of people getting in the low 200 latency, which is still better than the average 1900 satellite latency. If there is any large patches, or updates then you could just switch back to satellite. Just a thought?

Dial up will work for WoW.. You will however not be able to do anything with 20+ Players, You may beable to get away with 10mans. Satalite vs Dial up.. It's a Lose lose, Hughesnet you can raid, With minor lag (Non peak hours) Dial up you can do Arena's / Solo / Small Partys way better. So its a toss up on how ya wanna play.

Yep, dialup.. It's slow and not really reliable but that's how I've been playing WoW for quite some time now. I can tell when I goto StormWind or some other big city as it lags some, but since I do mostly solo questing/leveling it mostly works out okay.
