I have att DSL and just recently did a speed test, these are my results.

Ping - 40ms
DL Speed - 0.10 Mbps
UP Speed - 0.20 Mbps

Is it worth it? (Also on a wireless connection but I doubt wired will make much of a difference)

And I really want this to be my first MMO :(

I have 60 mbps your speed is extremely low for an mmo. I would consider upgrading if you are really considering to play this game.

What would you recommend to be the bare minimum for this game?

I didn't even know connections that low existed any more. Also why is your UL faster than your DL speed? Where did you do the speed test?

Also wireless can have a huge effect, especially on gaming. Hook your ps3 up to your router directly with an ethernet cable, they're super cheap.

I know a few people who played Wow on about 10 mbps even 5 is good if it's just you. Multiple people using the internet will bog down your experience though.

DL Speed - 0.10 Mbps

Just the fact that you are posting on the internet right now is a miracle.

Most online games don't require much speed. Latency to the server is the major factor. More speed does not = better latency all the time.
