Living in Japan has its pros and cons like anywhere, but broadband connections are definitely in the pro basket.

I feel sorry for you guys on 56k connections. You probably don't want to look below. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif

About two minutes to go for the last 130 megabytes, at over 1,000 kilobytes/second. Nice!

With speeds like that, you should feel sorry for the US broadband users that think their 235KB/s is fast. I keep telling Comcast to crank the dial, but for every 2MB they give you, they want $10. I wonder if a person could start their on broadband company, if $$$ wasn't an issue, and crank their settings as high as they wanted to. Shoot, if I were a rich man, I'd own a broadband company if only to give myself speeds like that. GEESH!

Hi Flying_Nutcase http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Nice speed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif
I'm on the cable high speed here in US so it didn't took long at all.
It's mostly all about where you downloading file from. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

515KB/s with Comcast from UBI http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif without accelerator

Yeah, I wondered that too. The same spelling mistake twice?

Some wierd thing is happening, 'cause it seems to be changing from kilobute to kilobyte. It's definitely written as 'byte'.

Twilight zone stuff.

So don't worry, I can spell 'byte'. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

I live in the US and with Roadrunner I get 600kb/s all the time on downloads. Pretty darn good too I think.

How I love the UK...
1Mb for me is 10 (c. $18US)
Splendid.
Interesting tho, I guess it won't be long before most applications are downloaded/charged on a per use basis.

a common misconception is that "CABLE" AND "DSL" are faster than 56K. not true entirely.

EVERYBODY in the U.S no MATTER the connection... is SET to be NO FASTER than 56K. the difference is BANDWIDTH . the actual VOLUME being transfered.not the speed. this is why some of the server operators are telling you to set LOWER settings for you to connect to thier server.

everybody in the U.S. is connected at 56K, MAX. that is as fast as we will WEVER see. period. what makes us think we are connected faster, is our volume/ bandwith.
