High Speed Internet and Flash Games

16 Oct 2010 | Miscellaneous |  2 comments
High Speed Internet This is a short article about High Speed Internet and how it relates to flash games as analyzed by Deimos. In this article you will find out why high speed dsl internet connection is important for flash games, get to know more about comcast internet plans and how the packages offered by internet providers in United States fares against the internet providers in Malaysia.

High Speed Internet and Flash Games
Nowadays, flash games are certainly getting more advanced and hence, they tend to end up with more megabytes. Take a look at the recently released – Road of the Dead which is an action driving zombie apocalypse flash game amounting to a total of 24.51 megabytes! Without a high speed internet, one would have to wait quite some time for it to finish downloading, that is one reason why Deimos provides flash games downloads so folks do not have to download the game again once their web browser’s cache is cleared.

High Speed Internet Rates
Taking a look at Comcast Internet Deals, one can get a 12Mbps download / 2000Kbps upload internet plan for USD $19.99 per month which is about RM62 per month. Whereas in Malaysia, for RM66 per month, one can only get a 512Kbps download / 256Kbps upload internet package. Obviously, the internet deals in United States are much better when compared against the ones in Malaysia.

Deimos’s Thoughts
Even though the quality of high speed internet in Malaysia is still not up to par when compared against with first world countries such as United States, it is still very much better when compared fifteen (15) years ago, during the early days when Deimos first started surfing the internet with a 14.4 kilo bits per second (kbps) data fax modem! Back then, the websites were much more simpler than websites of today.

Deimos Asks
When did you first start surfing the internet? Amazed at how fast technology advances? How much further do you think the technology will advance further in ten (10) years time?

    Do you remember how slow flash games used to be? Hell even the videos used to have pre-loaders that went on for ever!

    I first started play flash games 11ish years ago and that was with sites like cartoonnetwork.com and bonus.com… although I still remember playing the “Exploding Way of Stick” and also remember how buggy it was
