Trying to play online

I can't play online games on my PS4 it keeps saying my network delay might be too long for game streaming. So I tried the LAN and it still says the same thing 😭

Satellite internet has very high latency, and this affects some games. 


From their FAQ:


Will I be able to play console-based gaming?


Hughesnet is not recommended for console-based gaming activities because they quickly consume your Priority Data.
