Got a bit of a nasty shock today with internet speed down at 5-8 mega-bits per second - When the service was taken out it was around 25-30 mega-bits per second but has plummeted recently which would be a deal breaker for the service being carried on.
I don't have high speed broadband but I've been told it is coming at some point
So I need to figure the lowest internet speed that is possible to online games without any problems in mega bits per second.

latency and packet loss is way more important than your up/down, specially if you're the only one using that slow line.
