adsl is assymetric which means that' your upload doesnt take bandwith of your download and vice versa...

playing jk2 on 56k...well that's gonna suck unless you host but then it will suck for everyone else...

anyway most dedicated servers have a certain min rate/packet sending on their servers and since 56k can't keep up with broadbanders you usually freez up in q3...the q3 netcode isnt very 56k friendly so i think you will have a hard time even though i don't know how much they have improved the netcode in Q3 TA...

hopefully somthing similar to q3 CPMA will fix the rate problems and maybe even make it more fair to play transatlantic
