A “broadband” connection is highly recommended; a “dial-up” connection may frustrate the user. Broadband is defined as: Upload transfer rate of at least 1.0 megabits/second (or higher), and Download rate of 2.0 – 4.0 megabits/second (or higher). Typical DLS, ADSL, and Cable TV Internet connection easily meet these requirements.
