What is it you can’t do with dsl that you think satellite will help?
The only problem with slow dsl (and yes speeds will always matter until we all have +100Mbps connections) is when multiple people try doing things at once.
If you’ve been operating on unlimited, you have no idea how little data 150GB will feel like.
There will be an announcement on this forum so, just watch here.
Hi Rodney - In your situation, here is what I would do: Hold off at least until the new Viasat plans are announced. Then, watch this forum and see what folks have to say about the updated service.
The biggest problem for you, no matter how fast and consistent Viasat's new service turns out to be, is the latency, which can affect online games that depend on the timing needed for effective gameplay. Latency will be on average about 600 ms and will not change. Check and see if there are recommendations from the game manufacturers as to the minimum latency required.
In addition, you can canvas your fellow players and garner what their experience has been if they have used Satnet while playing.
Then, after all that, make your decision!
