    Verizon is bringing fiber optics to RI. I really don't think they are offering a 40 gig connection though. :p

    Yeah, just wait until grandma finds out about online bingo.

    Fixed that for you.

    But man, I wish I had that kind of speed. Or even half that. My connection right now seems to be slowing down each day for some reason...

    Am I the only one who's happy with his connection? It's no 40Gig/s of course, but I can get any files I want relatively fast. If it's going slow, it's the server's fault, not mine.

    Not saying im not happy with it, im pleased with mine but with that kind of speed she has is ridiculous.
     
  11. +1. Servers are way behind connection speed. Everything I download is capped at like 300ish.

    Whereas sometimes when I hit a randomly good server, I have been able to download at like 1.5mbps

    1. You are going to the wrong servers if they're capped out at 300KB/s.
    2. Load balancers are there for a reason.

    I have Verizon Fios. I get 2310.3 kbps which is pretty decent. If I could get a connection speed like that old lady Counter-Strike:Source would be so much better.
     
  14. That's fast! But I guess at her age she doesn't have time for slow downloads.
     
  15. stop your whining i gots dial up

  18. I'm pretty sure if I want to download something from download.com, or any other major download site, there is nothing I can do about it. Unless there is a secret "right" server you are holding out on. Do you want to host some files for me on your servers? Which must be better than these "wrong servers?" :rolleyes:

    2. I'm sure they have a reason. What does that have anything to do with anything? We have speed limits... going fast is still fun.
     
  19. I like to see her system save that movie in 2 seconds!
