Proof this is 2019 and not 1999 when it comes to internet usage?


Red Dead Redemption 2 (PC Version) is 112.5GB.


For those of you with no free zone and not a lot of priority data left in your plan, best of luck to you downloading this one!

With my 3 hour LNFZ it should take about 9 days to download the game. Thank you very little Viasat. Too bad PC games don't come out on disc any more.

That’s about 40 minutes for me. Long enough to eat supper.

I never had any trouble downloading or playing any video games with Viasat. Viasat was just as good as the fastest cable for playing the games I did. It was a great experience. Of course I played, chess, poker and black jack, ha,ha.

As long as it wasn’t speed chess you’d be fine.

I knew Bradley would chime in!

Seriously, the massive size of this game is freaking me out!

I have a full 4tb external and the internal 1tb full on my One X. Games are astronomical in size these days. Gears 4 is like 120gb. Quantum Break is similar.

Imagine a hdd failure on Viasat.

To put it in context, when Viasat first came out with Exede in 2012 it offered a 7.5GB/month plan with hard cap and no free zone.

It would take 15 months for me to download Red Dead Redemption 2 with that plan!

Exsat, they could probably fit that game on 2 blu-ray discs if PC gaming hadn't gone all digital.

The good old days, when you bought a game and it actually came in the box.

Just proves how far behind the times satellite internet has fallen. At least there's hope for Viasat 3!

Satellite internet has always been playing catch up and always will because of how long it takes to plan, build, and deploy.

Well been a while since I have posted on the forum, hope all is going good for everyone. ExSatUser I will be doing that upgrade Monday, I have been waiting on a fixed wireless company to finish putting up a tower near me and now they are done so I will become another to jump off sat net. My speeds will be 10mbps down and 1mbps up for $100 a month with true unlimited data. I could get faster or slower speeds but 10mbps is what i'm used to so I will go with that but heck I can get 3mbps for $44 If I wanted to but with gaming that would be a bit to slow as you say in this post downloads are huge now for games.

Congrats Terry. With true unlimited you can set an Xbox system to power itself on to update games and even push downloads from the mobile app from anywhere. Not sure about PlayStation. Might save you some money, but you’ll probably not regret the higher speeds if streaming. If you have more than one system you can set the other consoles to update off the primary system and save some bandwidth there too.

Congrats Terry! You won't miss satellite internet. Speeds are one thing, but low latency really makes a big difference too!
