I just bought Doom 2016.
I'd be more excited but it's gonna take a few days to download... It's 60 GB...
@kensp days? How did you get back to India?
@dpreacher I wish I was in india. I can get cheap ass Gigabit internet in Mumbai. It's cheaper than getting a 300 megabit connection in Tempe.
I have a 150 megabit right now. Really it's about 1-2 megabytes/s for stuff like steam download and package updates after it's shared between all the devices.
So yeah. Since I don't keep my PC all overnight, it's days to download that 60Gigs.
In Germany it's slightly better. I'm paying 35€ for 100Mbit. I'm getting this speed when everyone is at work or asleep. But during prime time I get >1.5Mbit/s.
It's all a big scam tbh. To get reliable internet you have to shell out for the business internet. I have an uplink to the leasing office. I got upwards of 20 Megabit consistently. Went upto 50Megabit. Downloaded the game in hours. They have Cox Business...
I'm gonna have they even have unblocked ports and good IPv6 support...
@dpreacher @Ghosty To be fair, I think there might be an issue with my router or the cable wiring. My neighbors upstairs get 100-150 megabit of their home connection... Weirdly enough the same port in his house doesn't have a uplink to the leasing office... Maybe the cabling was damaged, and instead of fixing it, they just conncted our house to the leasing office? Who knows.
@kensp similar issue in my place. the first isp here laid cables supporting only upto 100mbps which was their highest plan. I moved to a newer isp that arrived much later and initially took their 100maps plan. But now they increased the speed to 150mbps at no extra charge but they won't spend on changing the existing 100mbps limited cabling that they didn't put in the first place
