Windows Live 'SkyDrive' Storage Increased to 5GB

One day, a dude working for Microsoft checked his G Mail account, and then checked his Live account. He noticed that he could shove a lot more stuff on his G Mail account than he could his Live account. To be precise, Live used to hold 1GB of digital goodies, while G-Mail can hold 6.4GB. And so, this dude brought this issue to the dudes in charge of developing and maintaining Windows Live, and bumped up Skydrive storage to 5GB. This move will make several dudes who subscribe to Windows Live quite happy, and makes Live more competent with the likes of Yahoo, AOL and of course G Mail. Live Skydrive storage is officially out of beta, and available in several countries around the globe.Source: Neowin.net

My upload speed is 1Mbit.
Is it Slow or Medium???
Maybe Fast :D
I think it's a good thing to have 5GB online storage, I don't use it to store films or so, but for photos and text or some music it's good!

I don't see why people need so much space to hold emails, although backing some important pictures are useful. Still not going to complain, just means i wont ever have to hit that delete button ever again.

its more for attachments than anything. Its crap for a few reasons - yahoo mail has unlimited storage, but a 10MB file size attachment. So its kinda impossible to fill it up.
