I am planning to buy Battlefield 3 limited edition for online gameplay for PC. I live in Pakistan. When I checked for pings from here to U.S. servers through www.speedtest.net, it was more than 500ms.
Is this value significant for a FPS online gameplay? What can I do to reduce it? Is it due to bandwidth? I have 1MB DSL broadband connection. If I upgrade it to 2MB, will it affect the pings in positive way or the pings are independent of bandwidth?
