    I want to change ISP. Any recommendations? I want a good one, but doesn't have to be great. Rogers is getting too expensive.

    No, it always saves it into your cache after you've downloaded or loaded the video. Why if you download and save it, it completes near instantly.

    Yeah, it was cached. Meaning the file was already downloaded before you saved it, because you had already seen the video on YouTube itself. All it had to do was save the same file in a different folder.


    PS: A lot of japanese people could say your download rate is too slow
    PS2: My max dl speed here is 100kb/s LOL

    well i have a pretty sweet deal with primus. about 60ish per month for local phone, free long distance to anywhere in NA, and high speed internet. about 20-40 bucks cheaper than what i would be paying with bell or rogers.

    Did you bargain or something? Or can I bring it right up so I can have the same deal? Mine's already $45 a month just the internet alone.

    Edit: What's your bandwidth as well? I get 60gb per month.
