The max you can get in this country is about 200kb/s with cable.

I know plenty of people in the Netherlands and the USA that download nearly 2 Megabytes a second.

I want those speeds :lol:

Might I encourage you all to do your freakin math!?

2mbps = 256kb/s

This download at 800kb/s would require you to have a 6.25mbps connection.

GET REAL!

Your ISP is Comcast, which doesn't offer no 6.25mbps connection.

The equation? bit\8=byte

800kbps I can see.......and you'd be downloading at an avg max of 100kb/s.

:lol:

Advertised speeds by ISP's are in BITS per second (Communications speed), actual download speeds are a measure of storage and are measured in BYTES per second.

Might I add that the fastest service Comcast offers is 3.5Mbps, their "Pro" package..........at 95 dollars a month. (Check their website)

This kinda miseducation and exageration REALLY cracks me up.

calm down cinder.

I already said "lies" Online to Gamecop but meh.

Yes there is no way you possibly can get that speed. The most I ever got was 300 kbs somehow (T1 Server I think). Otherwise, I want to know what site you're downloading from :lol:
