Wizard101 lags really really bad on my pc. What internet speeds does wizard101 recommend to make playing more enjoyable?

The game has always been lagging, they have upgraded their servers but the game is always lagging. I have around 20- 30mpbs of speed and I still lag, I wish us paying customers could get better performance...

I am not sure of the internet speed. I have DSL (rural area with very few options) and it works fine for me without any lag. Before getting DSL I had satellite internet. During peak hours (evenings) I could not play because the lag was so bad.

I'm not sure about the right speed, but cable/DSL is usually your best bet for constantly streaming. Satellite will work, but satellite has a history of delay. You get all the internet traffic, however, satellite brings in a bigger pipe, but at a slower rate. Timing games are most affected by satellite.

Even the slowest DSL speeds would be sufficient, but Cable/Optical is the best all around value/performance
