Default Re: Guild Wars on Satelite Internet

I used to be with HughesNet back when they were DirecWAY. I was on 1050Mhz transponder on Satmex5, AFAIK it was 115 deg azimuth. One thing you need to be sure you understand is the FAP (Fair Access Policy) with Hughes. Also latency is around 1500ms to 2000ms round-trip.

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/sat is a great place to get more information. When I used to have satellite I'd pretty much live there.

Wildblue has a less restrictive FAP. When you understand the FAP with Hughes you'll see it's like driving 200mph for the first 20 miles of a 500 mile trip and walking the remaining 480 miles on foot; it's that slow.

I'd go with Verizon.
