I know you guys get this question a lot but it is about online video games and I know there's a dude that does this but I have a playstation and a computer and I want to play Overwatch but every time I get on I have well over 600+ ping even when I plug it in through Ethernet if I could get some help or an answer about how to maybe improve this or it may improve in the near future please reply to me.

You cannot get under 600 ms ping time on satellite internet.. The only way you will be able to reduce your ping to less than 75 ms is to find a new ISP that is cable, wired, WISP or cell based.

Some games will work, but those games that require low latency (i.e. low ping times) are not going to work on satellite internet. Unfortunately, the laws of physics cannot be overcome.

That could really shake things up if proven true.

The general consensus is that FPS games are going to be frustrating with the lag but other games tend to do well. Keep in mind that 750m/s is the average ping rate
