All this "speed" is great,
but.................................................

The vast majority of the servers on the web can't get close to those
speeds. About the average for the majority I have used seems to be
around 70>90Kbps. I have found a few that could hit close to 130Kbps.

The only limiter I have is the 100Mbps network card in my computer. It
still took me about twenty-four hours to download the DVD for 10.2. Best
speed I saw from the server was 70Kbps and for most of the download it
was more like 50>60Kbps.
