Ick!

I am trying to download the CBC show, and I am on Montreal-DSL aka Teksavvy, and I am only getting 30 kB/s, like everyone else. I'm in the Ottawa area.

But I also ftped the latest kernel (yes, I am one of those sickos who likes to compile their own Linux kernels) from kernel.org, I got throughput of over 450 kB/s. So it's not the network that is slow, it's the link somewhere betweeen me and those 100+ seeders that is throttling the connection. With that many seeds, 90% of them are in Canada, I should be maxing out my connection with 500+ kB/s or more.

I don't know about dsl. Cable modem (Nexicom) north of Peterborough dl'd this in ~17 minutes at 6:30 pm.
Ramped up for about 10 minutes then finished at about 820 kB/s. Bell was trying to sell me broadband last week. Supposedly at 1 mB/s. Not planning on being disappointed.
