Welp I'm on Comcast...6Mb/s down, 1Mb/s up (actual bandwidth copying a 4GB file to/from my work nearby which has many times over in bandwidth.
At 1Mb/s, it will take just over 23 days to reach 250GB.
at 6Mb/s, it will take just under 4 days to reach 250GB.
Downloading, ala uTorrent, HD moves at 15GB+each...ouch...and don't forget while pulling down I've got my upload high as possible without choking my download....about 750Kb/s (d/l varies..but typical is 350KB/s)
Oh well.. I'll just route my uTorrent traffic between the open wi-Fi Ap's in my neighborhood...
