Right now my internet speed is 5mb/s – and it has been for almost two years. When you happen to be a nomadic gamer, this becomes VERY painful, especially given the fact that there’s more than just me in the house. We don’t have cable, so if the children are watching TV we can’t download. My husband is also a pretty big gamer and he has games that require patching too. These days, games are HUGE, and they have LOTS of patches, which is great – when you have great internet but not all of us have that available, and I never realized just what a big deal it was until we moved out this way. Hopefully it’s just a few more months to go and then we can enjoy ‘regular’ internet once again. Until then, my steam library is looking a bit bleak.
