Lowering ping time?
I have a question about speeding up my internet connection/lowering ping time.
I live 8 miles from town, just out of reach from cable internet, so I have to have satellite internet. It's really expensive, so I just have the basic package which gives me 1 mbps downloads. But I also want to do a tiny bit of online gaming.
Well, I have a grandmother, who lives in town, and has stupidly fast internet for what she needs which is over 7 mbps. I was wondering, if I could set up a proxy, or a vpn, through her internet, to lower my ping time for my games?
Right now it's around 750, which is just absolutely terrible. I usually get kicked because it irritates people. Though, when I'm at her house, my ping is around 50. I figured it'd be faster to access a house 8 miles away, than 1000, right? I just want to get it down to something actually tolerable. 400? 500?
It's a bit of a stretch, I know. I would just set up a server at my house and invite a few friends or something, but they don't offer a server for the game I want to play.
