International Space Station Internet Too Slow for Games

I suppose if I was on the International Space Station, I could find several other things to do rather than play video games on the internetآ….and it’s a good thing too. No real complaints from the astronauts on the slowness of the connection, just a casual observation. big grin I really wonder who is the ISS ISP?

Hadfield noted that since the spacecraft travels at eight kilometers per second, the speed of the station's Internet connection is about the same as dial-up.
