    Ive heard it before, some guy was downloading Open Source Darwin from Apple, and he was using a 128kbs connection. It downloaded at 1.5mb per second. They call it a burst of data I think.

    When I was in residence back at university, I would sometimes get really fast downloads for certain things. I believe I downloaded Ubuntu 5.04 at 500kb/s consistent. Back on dial-up now so if I see 5kb/s, I am ecstatic .

    I frequently get 377 kb/s but usually around 277 kb/s. I'm spoiled now. Back in the early Compuserve days it was 300 baud and paid by minute.

    That's the fastest i've ever seen. I get steady 160kb /s with my current ADSL, but i remember back in BBS days my 1200 baud modem would stream text slower than it took to read it. Sigh, i dreamed of one day owning a 'high speed' 14400 modem.

    I've been waiting for home connections to make more use of burstable bandwidth.

    There is no reason why a cable connection can't provide you with obcene speeds for a few seconds, then throttle back to normal.

    Like, 20MB for 5 seconds, then 4MB after that.

    That'd make so many people happy, and not really help out people who were trying to download huge files they knew would take a long time anyways.

    It became stable at 400kb per second. That's real fast for my connection...

    Damn, yeah talk about speed! I have always consistent on 89 KB/s on my dsl line, the slowest (and cheapest) offered by our ISP. Back when I had ISDN, I usually had between 6 KB/s and 8 KB/s, imagine why I sticked to fedora 1 for a while
