all depends on price doesnt it?

surely 7-8mbps is enough for 99% of people

I used to survive on a daily diet of tv / films via 1mbps

its not like putting a new 6Litre engine in a 1litre car lol

err yer 6 to 7 mb line would be enough but when i see my friend with a 20mb line and takes next to nothing to download a movie lol i want it lol

i was told that i depends on what the phone line and what it can handle
