Hi. I play multiplayer games on my PC like Halo and Half Life and have a fairly fast DSL connection (I average about 2500Kbps (2.5Mbps) downstream and 435Kbps upstream). I'm thinking about moving down to a slower connection to save money but I'm wondering how that will affect the multiplayer experience. Does anyone have a slower connection speed than me but a smooth gaming experience? Or is it choppy? You can check your connection speeds here: www.speedtest.net or www.speakeasy.net/speedtest Thanks!

I used to play Quake3/counterstrike/... on an old standard 512Kb/128kb line, and it was just fine. For more complex games (Battlefield), The requirements are higher, but a 1 meg line should do the trick. The upload req. will still pretty minimal.

...And btw, this is probably not the best place to ask tbh. :)
