The official StarCraft II System Requirements says "Broadband Internet connection".

But how many kbps are required for playing online?

1mbit minimum or 3mbit recommended:


Also note that latency is usually more important than bandwidth.

  • Thats from 22 May 2008, I don't know if its still relevant. I know people are playing with 512kbps, but I have only 256kbps.

  • @hiena, the game definately requires less than that, your latency is way more important. Commented Jul 29, 2010 at 15:22

Games rarely require more than few KB/s.

The latency and stability is much more important. If you are getting more than 150 ms or dropping more than 5% of packets, then it might be a problem.
