i had a dsl connection of 6mbps nd i was playing with jthamind who in the state next door nd it lagged. i also tried it with my friend who's lives like 10mins away from me nd it lagged.
i just upgraded my network from at&t dsl to at&t u-verse connection(24mbps, max turbo) package that uses fiber optic lines instead. from what i heard these lines are more stable nd fluid.
im hoping when i get back into town like in 2 weeks il be able to play smoothly. i no its a 24mbps connection which sounds amazing, but the problem is that i have 3 or 4 other ppl in the house sharing the connection speed. so in short i should b getting round 5-7mbps for myself nd i think that should be enough.
