That tends to make games unplayable, among other things... (a good time for a dialup line is generally between 200-350, with 350-500 being mediocre)

Sometimes it gets to 3000 and beyond... which is.. well..

you'd have to ask him for a first hand experience with it, its been a while since I was inflicted to being on the dial up end of IGS... although I have tried to connect to him now and then, its pretty brutal.
