I am on Zen internet and have upgraded 3 computers to Windows 8 using the digital download mechanism. Taken approx 1hr to do the download on each machine at 8Mbps, i.e., pulled the download at the full 8Mbps.
Neighbour tried it on his orange connection (synched at 8Mbps, etc etc) and it is reporting 5 hours remaining.
Is their network at capacity or are they throttling people from actually doing useful activities? As far as I am concerned it is not a local exchange contention issue here.
