Satellite Internet Help Please!

4 replies 297 views Edited Oct 11, 2013
I've recently moved far enough out of town that it looks like my only option is going to be satellite internet Smiley Sad I've heard it's better than it was a few years ago, but I'm just worried about which one to pick. Anybody have any input or use satellite internet? Worried about lag mostly, of course. Any help, opinions, suggestions, etc would be greatly appreciated! I play Black Ops 1 & 2 mostly & some MW.

DISH has 10-60 Mbps internet, however you get what you pay for so to speak. I think you can bundle a pretty decent TV package and a 10 MB internet connection for around 60-70 bucks a month.

Thanks, we had already signed up with Direct TV out here, but I heard their upload speeds weren't all that great. I can get pretty good download speeds from a few carriers, but was told that my upload speed was what I needed to worry about. Not worried about pricing really because I knew I would probably have to pay more for anything decent way out here.

I'll call around and check. One thing I need to make sure of not happening is signing up, it not being worth a crap and then having to pay an arm and a leg to get out of a contract. So free trials are almost a must for me, if I can find them! Smiley Happy

DirecTV has Exede satellite internet. Maybe you can check that for a bundle. I would think you would want at least a 1-3MB upload.
