I am wondering how fast do you want your download speed.
it depends on what's being downloaded. If it's a flash movie or mp3, yes, I'd like it done within a minute or so. But if it's a long video, or an anime series, or a pirated game, I can certainly expect it to take up to two weeks to finish by torrenting.
Currently with an SNR of 9dB I can get a 15Mb sync, real world speed is about 12Mb/s.
With an SNR of 7 I can sometimes achieve about 19Mb/s, with real world speed being around 14-15Mb/s.
My downstream/upstream attenuation is 29.0dB and 13.5dB respectively with an average noise margin of 11.8/14.2dB respectively.
I am about 1.6km from the exchange. Basically, it's quick enough.
Ideally, I would like a faster connection, but with the government doing huge back flips on their election promise, it's highly unlikely that it will happen anytime soon.
It is a well known fact that technology wise, Australia is about 15 years behind the rest of the world, and broadband wise, we're about 10 years behind Europe. The proposed but unlikely-to-happen Fiber To The Node scheme is technology that is long outdated.
"World class broadband" my ass, Rudd.
i want the fastest downloads i can get, course i can't afford to pay the monthly cost for the fastest downloads i can get
Who wouldn't want something downloaded quickly...The question is a failure
The question should be what is your download/upload speeds. Mine is like 3.5 MB's download per second and upload is around 550 KB's per second.
**** downloading things, the internet is made of Satan. I don't want the Satan beams attacking my shiny computomo-box.
