I just love 120Mb


[link to this post]
 
I just downloaded a 1.71Gb video file via a torrent in less than a minute. The rate maxed at exactly 15MB a second. I calculate 15MB x 8 as 120Mb.

This is ample justification for having 120Mb. My download time minimised my presence on our local network to less than a minute. Even though I was hogging bandwidth I doubt if anyone noticed.

Sorry for gloating, but it is good to have positive comments here too.

Virgin Media: 120mb/12Mb , land line, mobiles x2, TV - VIP HD box + TIVO 1Tb box.
