Reveilled Posted September 19, 2005 Share Posted September 19, 2005 My internet provider has given me the opportunity to upgrade my broadmand from a 128k connection to a T1 connection for no extra cost. Which is all well and good, but the tenfold increase in speed comes with a tenfold decrease in the cap. At present, my download cap is 30GB. I don't use anything close to approaching that amount (in fact, I wasn't even aware there was a cap until I got this offer, since I'd never come anywhere near it). I usually download about 1GB of stuff a month (not counting webpages), which would be well under the 3GB cap, but if, for example, I wanted to download an entire series of a show (hypothetically, you understand, as I would of course never condone such an illegal practice ), I would have to spread it out over several months. Basically, that's not too much of a problem, but only if I'm going to get something tangible in return. I can usually afford to leave my computer on at nights to download large files on my slow connection. I don't play any online games. Other than downloads, pretty much the only thing I use the intrnet for is to surf webpages and read forums. Will upgrading my internet connection provide any noticeable speed increase in the downloading of webpages? Any advice from people with fast connections and download caps would be appreciated. Hawk!
