Great Aza!

We had to wait a long time before ADSL was available in our area. I refused to go through our local cable provider and I was ready to just get rid of our computer, I couldn't stand how slow dial up was! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

In other words it is 10 times faster than the dial-up I was used to http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

It's 600k Aza. If it were 60 then you would be on dial up speed again. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif :cool: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

its probably 60KB/sec which is much better than dialup was. I can get around 90KB/sec.

Wahts the largest file you have download?

Mine was 115MB (flight simulator ad ons) i think it took about half an hour! For those on dial up it would take about forever http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

I went over two LinuxISO.org and started one of their 650MB downloads, and it said it would take about 2 hours and 10 mins to download.
