if i was to get a 3.0 mbps dsl connection will that be good enough to be able to play online and d/l updates at a sufficient enough time?

It's ok. Not the greatest. I have 22 mbs and I think it's slow

Downloads may take time. Your uploads are more then likely crap. But you shouldn't have any problems playing multiplayer.

You should be ok with online gaming, update will take awhile as there some that are big(like 13gb for dr3) but remember that your unlikely to get the advertised speeds. For example I'm paying for 100mbps but only get 60 to 90.

I used to play online with a 1.5mbps connection. It works ok, just don't try to host on any peer-to-peer games or everyone else will lag bad.

I had some issues with my Internet dropping me a while back and while on the phone with the Xbox tech guy he said Live only requires 1 mbs down and .5 up. I was surprised.

The ping is what may get you. Too long a ping and you'll get issues. No way to know ping until you test the connection.

I'm guessing TC is American? And people say Canada has bad internet.

3 MBPS down is terrible. I sure hope that internet plan is dirt cheap for such poor performance.

I have 35/75 and it's just too fast I can't keep up with anything I'm so upset about it.
