Unfortunately, you can't.  Real time online games don't tend to work well, if at all, with satellite internet.  This is due to the latency, which can't be overcome.  The latency is normally at least in the 600ms to 700ms range, and can be higher than that, depending on all of the other parts of the infrastructure the signal has to travel through.  

 

Even if the service speed is spectacular, the latency will kill real time online gaming.  This page gives more detail.  

 

Turn based games tend to work fine with HughesNet, though.
