Specs: Windows 7, phenom 9750 quad core/4GB ram
i've been trying to play FPS games online with some brazilian friends. I live in the US and unfortunately my ping is too high around 240. I have a 50mb dl and 5mb upl and it works fine in the US but when trying to connect to a brazilian server the ping is still high. No matter if i have the 9mb or 50 mb connection, the ping is still the sae. i was wondering if i get satellite internet would that be fixed? if not, is there a solution to this? i know that europeans can play with us and unfortunately we cannot play with them, how? thanks for your help.

satellite internet is the worst you can get.

There are VPN services you can sign up/pay for that, if it exists in Brazil, would be the way to go. They have it in the UK as a way for folks to play/watch EU tv while living in Africa or elsewhere.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I don't think its a VPN you want for gaming but those proxy services for games.
Try googling for "fix lag".

yea, it is not. just contacted someone from a vpn service provider and they said it will not help at all. the only thing that they do is to be able to pass by some countries restricted websites, etc... what is a proxy service for gaming? didn't know about that one. my pc has nothing to do with being lagged. every friend of mine that play my game have the same problem as me. I tried googling on how to fix it to be able to play in an international server and no solutions appeared. im going to check that proxy thing. thanks for the reply and help.
