    Whats your connection speed!

    I wanna see everyones connections speeds because when i download games i use public torrents and the most I get is like 70kbs i heard some people download games in a couple hours and they go at 800kbs i find it amazing and want to know your connections speed, if you use public or private torrents and the average download kb

    Connection: 100mbps
    Public Torrents
    Average: 50kb

    It depends on what I use to dl with torrents I use Azureus and normally get the same/similar speeds to yourself, JDownloader uses links to rapidshare, etc and normally pulls them in around 50kbs.

    A colleague at work uses usenext and gets a 4.5GB file in a couple of hrs.

    I have a 8mbs connection
    and normally use public torrents.

    with j downloader on mu and media fire usually 900 + kbs sometimes a little less and sometimes as high as 1.5 mbt. With u torrent ,torentzilla 600-800kbs, Pussy torrents 1.2 - 1.5 mbt, I love torrents 700-800kbs, Demonoid 600kbs-700. of course most of these have a reasonable amout of seeds and leeches Just my averages plus or minus every once in a while i get some sucky speeds but rare . my buddy has the same internet company as i got and he's nowhere neer my dwnld speeds and his upload is pathetic.

    I have cable internet 4 megs

    At my old house i never got these speeds i just got lucky here at my new place.

    I just downloaded house of the dead @ 440kb/sec

    just under 3 hours for the game


    This was RevolutionTT private tracker with about 60 seeders.

    600kb/sec is about the fastest I've ever got

    ADSL2+ connecting at about 5mb, Too far from the exchange

    With VUZE (Azureus) on Ntorrent I downloaded 2 games at once. On game with 5 seeders got me about 180KBS and the other game had 31 seeds got me about 480KBS

    I have 8MBs connection

    you cant really base your dl on your speed cause you have to consider other peoples upload speeds as well.

    Like JMS said you cant base it on ur connection, but the source of the downloads. On supertorrents I max out my connection (90-95% anyways of the fastest ive seen or heard of it going) on pretty much everything I download if there is 10 plus seeders. I dont have access to anywhere with a substancial amount of wii games I can afford to download and waste my ratio tho and go public for them, which gets me pathetic speeds below 5% of connection max speed, so I just let them go for days on end. Its not a really big rush and if its something new the video store is 5 minutes and wiihttp 2.5 hour rip so thats how the cookie crumbles.

    torrents use to be good but now if you cant get a private torrent with fast speed seeders your better off renting and dumping

    That being said I prefer just buying the game. It is nice to have the original case and book

    I used to see threads like this all over the place and was also the opposite but these days I must agree I sort of enjoy just having a few games on my ps3 and not that many I dont bother playing them and it does just look so much better to have a pile of 15-20 originals and not a folder of backups. Guess it happens as you get older and have ur own money to spend on things, but when your a kid you cant always get what you want lol
