    hello everyone! I see a lot of talk about internet solutions. Does anyone have a recommendation for high speed internet that get service in most areas that I can play an online pc game with? I enjoy playing online pc games in my free time but I haven’t found a service that will work for that.

    I can't answer that except for the good old phone.

    But I have to say if you do your job right, you won't have time for games.

    Gaming will suck. You'll never get good latency. Anything competitive is going to be terrible.

    You are going to get shot up really seriously then learn to hate it. Lag (Latency in "ms" between your machine and that of the server will be horrendeous if not actually a form of kickable server side to make sure the rest of the "Room" has good timely packet servicing.

    You are reduced to what will run on your smart phone.

    Also, if you have that much free time to play around pretending to be a space man or something, you are not using time properly in trucking to make the best income.

    I do a dab of online gaming myself, however it's not a time burner like it used to be.
     
    Intothesunset Thanks this.

    One of the reason I left otr is lack of internet connect connectivity, but by 2025 that should be a thing of the past with the new sat clouds going up

    I bought a unthrottled Verizon plan from Ebay for $65 a month. Works great
