Re: Vs DSL?

said by Heh213:

But yeah... still the latency, you're never going to do any "twitch" gaming on sat, at least not any time soon.

I doubt any satellite provider will ever be capable of gaming in the future... heres why: satellite= direct connection, still portable however. Wireless connection= the connection can be picked up all around or in a small area.

Either one of these types of ways for connecting is still lame cause you cannot host and you cannot get the best performance from your own connection

While true, the reason why is not what you stated.

The reason? The distance. Even at the speed of light, over the distance this has to travel, you will not be getting latency that you can play shooters (or any other game that requires quick reactions).
