check to which data center you have the best latency. 
 

i had 80ms @ 15mb/s stream to amsterdam on vodafone’s 4g network last year in the affluent cairo & alexandria neighborhoods (wouldnt recommend that option due to datacap, you’ll be consuming about 6.5gb per hour).

if the fixed internet is still the same monopoly then i’d suggest to do the speed test a couple of times spread throughout the day / night and especially on thursdays/fridays.

you are welcome
 

If Paris is your best data center then youd have to pre-order on one of the following countries

France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, United Kingdom

 

and wait time is quite long. October with the current estimate

Hey bro welcome to the community, a couple of questions before you go for the service. 

1) as Gaijin and Lilly mentioned you'll need to check the server you're going with. NY server is waaay out of your region if am not mistaken it's the furthest point from Egypt so your ping will be so high. Nevertheless if you chose France and its 80 ms that's still high my dude that's almost an entire second…

2) can you share with us a speed test speedtest.net I wanna see what you're playing with.

3) shadow delivers a very high streaming quality with low compression for the video codex so it usee a lot of Data. Do you have unlimited internet cap/bandwidth or you're on a certain limitation?

4) back to the high ping what are you going to use Shadow for? Daily PC usage? Gaming? Competitive fps gaming? 1 second or higher ping can hinder your gaming experience.

 

Amazing to hear the community is expanding in Egypt but I want to make sure you receive the best experience. 

 

And to the shadow team maybe we should think about expanding a server in Dubai considering the middle eastern marketplace.
