    I'd have loved to test this, but alas, Europe. Kinda odd though that they have it up and running in the US, when a lot of other countries have relatively faster internet connections :huh:

    Surprisingly my ISP is coming up pretty close to their advertised data rate this week. Unfortunately...

    ...there's no choice around here but over-the-air because there's no cable at all down our road. There's a 6Mb package available 'in some areas' but they didn't respond to any of my inquiries about upgrading to it or why my IP address changed to somewhere most sites believed was in the Netherlands last spring.

    So yeah, as much as I'd like to test this on my PS3 or Vita, it looks like I won't be able to.
