Solved: Will satellite help my ping?
My ISP (windstream) is having some kind of problem with there internet providing since the beginning of June and it's still not fixed. It's not just me it's everyone who has them. If I ever have 1 Mb it would be better than what I have now, but I wanna know if satellite will help stabilize my ping during games.

Every day it can be fine when i start (sometimes) around 60 or 70..but it will randomly spike to 1k and will take forever to go down but it never stays down. Will satellite help ping at all?

What you're referring to is latency and not "pings". The use of pings to describe latency is a perversion of the gaming industry.

With that said, no, going with satellite will not help but probably make things worse. Try dealing with average latency of 500ms as a baseline with probably worse performance in daily use.
