It's satellite based. Do the math. Send a signal from your dish to the satellite - 22,300 miles (orbit of satellite) / 186,000 miles per second (speed of light) * 2 trips (up and back) = 0.239 seconds or 239 milliseconds or 239 ping. And that's just up and back from Direcway's server. Assume a ping of 100 from Direcway's server to the game server and now you're talking 339 ping. Not good.
