    128kbps connection

    Hi

    I was wondering if you could help me. I want to buy a mobile broadband of 128kbps and I wanted to know if this connection is really slow or it works just fine. All I'll do is surf the net, go to betting sites and online casinos. I wanted to know if a connection of 128kbps is good enough for these activities. I don't plan on doing any kind of downloads, just casinos and betting sites.

    But is it fast enough to go to betting sites and online casinos? Or that won't work?

    Never tried those sites.
    Maybe someone else can jump in.

    The problem with lower rate connections isn't just the speed but the service in general is lower priority then faster connections which is fine for non-interactive services such as email/ web surfing but not so good when dealing with interactive services such as you've described.
