    University bandwidth

    just downloaded 260mb of updates through the university servers...less than 6mins
    started out at something stupid like 1mb/sec then chilled out down to 600-700's..talk about sucking the internet for all its worth!

    heh - is that using JANET ?

    I recall getting rather similar speeds when I was at University and a friend used to go into the computer room when it was very late and bash the bandwidth for himself.

    Just think though - with the advent of ADSL2 on the horizon and hopefully more LLU providers this year a speed like that at home is only around the corner

    yeah it was great living in halls in that respect, when resnet (staffs unis shoddy excuse for a net connection) was working properly, could easily get 400kb/s of downstream and 100kps of upstream

    that was thru JA.NET Tho ours is shoddy cos although we had a 622mbit connection to JA.NET, that was through stoke campus and we only have a 150mbit line to stoke

    I'd guess you were downloading the updates in the residences, that seems slow for a uni connection.

    I get about 6-7mb/sec from good sites on my computer here...

    10mbit is a bit crap for uni net, I had that last year in my room
    Though that was because they capped everyone to 10mbit, bastids.

    If your IT deptment hasnt capped speeds and your on a decent link, then yes. Im lucky as Norwich goes into cambridge then to london so we get excellent speeds.

    edit: to test it, try downloading SP2 standalone or office XP SP3.

    edit2: thats more what youer should be getting.

    i'm at imperial college london and this hall of residence has a 2Mbit pipe to the internet. shared between all 300 of us here in this residence. send help please!

    they're upgrading it to a 100Mbit connection to campus soon, but 'soon' probably means the summer, when i leave... In the lab i get about 1Mbyte/s during lunchtimes.
