As far as I'm aware Dish/Satellite Internet is the next best thing in rural areas where you can't get DSL or Cable, correct? Is it feasible to be a competitve gamer in rural areas at all?
Give me the dirt on the best Internet Satellite providers if you have experience in this market. I read recently that "All business Satellite Internet Providers utilize a policy referred to as the Fair Access Policy", which means speeds will be knocked down from (1.5mb to 128kps for exampe) half way into downloading a pr0n flick or what have you. I would assume you would even cap on your bandwith if you were doing heavy online gaming.
I have yet to find a provider that allows more then a 1.5mb/500kb dl/ul speed. I'm not sure who provides the most liberal bandwith usage policy either. Enlighten me.
On a side, what kind of speed are you gamers running w/ your internet connections?
