I now have 8 Meg and it is nearly 7 according to download testers, amazing for a tiny village miles from anywhere.
Indeed it's about time, 10 Meg is standard in some countries. I have 2Mb or in reality ~1.4 Megabits/s. Mines free with my TV package though, and I don't download large files so it's more than enough.I now have 8 Meg and it is nearly 7 according to download testers, amazing for a tiny village miles from anywhere.
Aren't you in UK?I now have 8 Meg and it is nearly 7 according to download testers, amazing for a tiny village miles from anywhere.
A lot of people in the country are still on dial up, the towns and cities seem to have everything, i only changed to 8meg as i noticed a real difference between night and day downloads.Aren't you in UK?
Back in 2002 or so, UK was 99% dialup. Australia was just as bad, and they were paying more for dialup than north americans were paying for dsl and cable. Now it's the other way around. Stuff in north america is often slower than it was 10 years ago, and it's more expensive because bandwidth usage has expoded while the limits have not increased in most cases.
I'm on 1.5mb with no bandwidth limits. Same connection since 2001.
Yeah and ten Megabytes/s is 8 times faster than that or 80Mbps. Now imagine what you could get down there. My friend used to download movies and stuff, he'd get 2 or 3 down in a night. now that's fast. 6-9 hours of MPEG is a big file. Of course they kicked him off the server for abusing it though. Hehe.A large 10 page pdf file is all most instant SD, i mean as soon as the connection is made the file is there, before i had to wait a minute or two, this is without the filters i am supposed to have fitted and through my linksys wireless.
The upload is not even 1 meg though, but i do not need much any way.
