So what can you do on a 383k broadband line


[link to this post]
 
So have been at my parents house for the last few days, where they have 5 phones and a lot of "internal wiring". The alarm company looks to have pooched the line, which I have not had time to fix.

The download speed is 383K and the upload is 799K on an adsl2+? line.

so what can you do on a 383K download line.

* Post on thinkbroadband.com for one
* Look at normal web sites like msn.com, but a bit slow, if some video on the page
* Access web email and internet banking services
* Run an intelligent printer and print to it via email.
* Connect onto the work's VPN service and download emails etc.
* Use the work VPN to then run internal Lync voice and screen share calls. One or 2 glitches when new email comes in.
* Just about watch Netflix. For a 40-50min series episode, you get several(about 3) 2-3min stutters while Netflix buffers the video. Impressed with Netflix on such a low bandwidth line.
* Only have one user using the internet for video, as this takes up the whole 383k

Just need to take some time to fix the wiring when I am there next, or call in a plumber. I want my 5860K download back!!!!!!

It just goes to show that most people probably don't need "superfast" and up.

Got a function?
We've got it covered!

Well, most live off their phone contracts do they not?

Presume the attenuation suggests that much higher speeds are possible

When I had a 1.2Mb adsl connection Netflix advised me they would not accept a subscription as the line was too slow,also couldn't watch iPlayer without buffering and most times it refused to work on a smart tv, so would download programs to watch later. Only now with a 3.2Mb FTTC connection can I reliably stream one SD program.

A lot depends on the client and server software, some streams are delivered in a much more rate adaptive manner, others have a fixed bit rate.

They don't? I'm not talking of the hardcore internet people. Your average joe are happy with 3G/4G everywhere.

The only person I knew that my ex boss 'captain bob' was wary off, was Murdock (some might say he should have been more wary of Mossad) so I'm [censored] if I'll have much to do with him or his companies.
