    Just got upgraded from 50GB to 1TB of badnwidth thanks to Optus [​IMG]

    The Aussie ISP is increasing their data allowences for their Fusion plans.

    Australians should know what I'm talking about.

    I have unlimited bandwidth. [​IMG]
    Just my internet is really slow, only 330 kilobytes/s

    So
    330*60*60*24*30/1024=.8TB a month if I download constantly.

    So I guess technically I have less bandwidth than you... [​IMG]

    Eh... according to Speedtest.net I've got 15.88Mbps. If I'm lucky on the torrent I usually get at least 800kb/s (my record was 1.8MB/s)

    I've had unlimited bandwidth for a few years now, and even without the serious downloading I used to do, I still take up over 100GB a month. I could upgrade to get the double speed broadband that's available all over the UK now, but that means I'd have to drop down to a 60GB bandwidth allowance again. This is the price I pay for my parents picking the country's cheapest broadband provider.

    Great, now you can download 10 games at a time, host 50 game servers while streaming a video 8D.

    Which leads to my next question, what are the D/L and U/L speeds? (While plugged in with cable, Not wireless!)
