If you can't get a modem, then what else could you get?

And try just getting DSL.

Fixed Wireless?

Dishes give you like a 250kb/s down connection, but your ping will be like 1-2seconds. More download than dialup, more lag.

nah its a little faster than that, but wow is it pricey...

But it doesn't talk about latency now does it? You'll have some immense lag, and you won't be able to play games because of it. Either your ping is too high, or people will boot you for the ping. Just talk to Jakor about satelite internet.

Why can't you get cable? It's the best thing for the price out there. A cable modem then a router will cost you no more than $100.

Edit: hmmmm the middle of no where though...

Isn't there a 1 second ping time with the satalite thought? That means no SC :(

Jakor can play SC. But he has like max red bars, all the time. He doesn't lag in game though. He automatically gets kicked from all public games, cause of his ping. I pinged Jakor to death in IRC. I think I got a 15second ping.

Get SATELITE INTERNET (cost like 40 to 70$cdn) its good if u live nowhere and u dont want to pay a phone line to have a gay slow ass 56k.
