Assuming CCP's CDN would actually deliver max speed around one minute. But in reality, 10-15 min.

Around 30 min if I used my phone.

EDIT: Oh, sorry. South Florida at 2 a.m. It's slow for some reason.
And, believe it or not, it's COMCAST.

I'm suppose to have 50Mbs but cap out at 30 like you even with a Docsis 3.0 modem and a new Linksys E2500 router. I need to get around and past the script reader at comcast and talk to a tech who will reset my connection at the head unit.

I got 100 mbps fibre at the office and 80 gbps 4G wireless at home.
Sadly i only get 20 mbps down at home, and 10 or so up i think.
I know a mate he lives in a apartment block and they got 300 mbps down. Big smile

Not sure about my practical speed, but I have to say I've been pretty pleased with my new 56k modem. If I turn the game settings to their lowest I can kick out a solid 6 frames per second.

In rural U.S they dont care about us as we dont represent a high enough profit margin to be considered.

My options are Hughes Net Sat, Dish Sat, and mobile 4G.

I have 4G. Can you imagine paying a $300 internet bill every month for 2.5 down/256k up? If you go over the 30ish gigs allowed, pay $15 a gig, which can equate to $150+ game prices due to digi distro. hmmm..a Netflx movie costs me 30+ bucks to watch!!?

using a damn egg timer to remind me how long I can use VOIP per night sucks!!!

We are getting rollover data starting this month, as if it is worth the price. I want to move, bad.

Comcast 30 Mb down 5 Mb up at home. It regularly gets above those numbers during normal usage.

Some sort of crap Century Link DSL at work, way slower than what I have at home.

Supposedly Gigabit is coming to Minneapolis, but not to the areas where I live or work. Best I could get would be around 100 Mb from Comcast.

And I installed EVE less than a month ago on my new gaming computer ... it took around an hour and a half for the complete install.

When I finally do make an impact on this universe, it will reverberate across the entirety of it, and no one will be able to truthfully claim they don't know me. - -

Until then, I'll just sit quietly over here, minding my own business...

This is my connection. 1MBPY (mega-bit per year). I play EVE on an abacus, which is a serious upgrade from the stone tablets i used to play EVE 3000 years ago while riding my dinosaur.
