Sun Oct 26, 2003 2:37 pm

Last fall on Kazzalite: 361KB/s maintained for 2 minutes, t'was a movie

2 weeks ago, on regular internet: over 900KB/s for less than a second, t'was a text file.

Back when I lived in the dorms, late late at night from fast servers sometimes I'd see upwards of 3-5 MB/sec.

I once had 1 megabyte per second (1 MB/sec) for a day at work (while on a course given by a hosting provider  Smile).
I wish I were flying

Compression can make it seem like your rated maximum download speed is doubled, tripled or quadrupled. Some files are more compressable than others, like text. Graphics and video are usually already highly compressed so exaggeration will be limited with those types of files.

At home on dialup.....maybe 10K/second?

At school....gosh....usually about 100-200K/sec but sometimes up in the couple of MB range. It mostly depends on the other server, not our school network.
