Speed

(heh) If you ever want to a demonstration of how good your bandwidth is, fire up BitTorrent and download a copy of Fedora. 689KB/s down, 94 KB/s up, 475 peers and a swarm speed of 1.7 MB/s. Yikes! (I remember being able to read the content as it was downloaded.) It is odd though, of the three top download rates, only one is U.S. I seem to have better throughput to Denmark and Britian.
