Let''s say a group of friends and I developed and MMORGP that works fine on our LAN and that we need to run a Beta online and are not sure what to do or where to start. What would I need to get the game running live on the Net? What would my bandwidth requirement be? Would it be better to use a Server Farm or to have a T1 or DS3 piped to our location (at this time not even a T1 can be afforded)? Basically, I need to know all the services I will need from an ISP to bring my game to life on the Internet. Please help. Thank you.

It depends on too many factors to list.

How many users are you planning?
How much bandwidth do you use?

For any major MMORPG nothing less than OCR will make due, as it would be too slow.

For many smaller games (say 50-200 players) you can even get by with a cable connection or T1.

And you mentioned a server farm? Is your server application load-balanced? How will it communicate? What operating system?

There are too many variables to list =]
