Well, he was doing starcraft, you just said so.
if i wanted to, i can get up to 50mbit down, 3or 4 mbit up... in germany, most of the people use 16mbit today. everywhere in the country.
A key fact is missing. is the pc a MAC or Windows? if windows are you sure that the PC has the correct drivers to open the flash card? That bird may have to make a return trip to get the CD for the right drivers first and I believe a CD is a bit heaver so it is again 'a simple matter of weight ratios'
drivers, for flash media?
they may be outdated, but that just means XP like the rest of the world.
windows 3.11 ftw
Lol I hope you are all being sarcastic about Africa... Well, South Africa anyway
The CIA info estimates:
223,000,000 internet users in the USA. (307,212,123 total population.) 72.59%
247,000,000 internet users in the whole European Union. (491,582,852 total population.) 50.25%
Internet access could be measured by a percentage of the populous thats actually connected, or the amount of users.
Of course the percentage of users in the Netherlands is far greater than in the USA and EU as a whole, simply due to its population density and prosperity.
Naahhh, Europe is pretty good to. Don't know about Asia..
I think it could also be measured in average speed per square mile of area. Look at the USA, it is huge compared to a lot of other countries. I don't think it is a quincidence that the countries with the fastest internet access, are also some of the smallest.
It is a lot easier to install and maintain a high speed internet infrastructure in a country like Japan(145,883 sq mi) or the Netherlands(16,033 sq mi) than it is in the US(3,794,066 sq mi).
don't forget that those countries have their governments subsidize the internet is some way so the people are paying WAY more (through taxation) for internet than we are in the USA.
Most internet infrastructure in the USA was paid for with public funds if we are talking about cable internet. Cities that created their own to be free for all citizens, had their state legislature make them hand it over to the private sector for free. It was the result of big business lobbyists.
Private sector is not always the best solution. I do think the US governement shouldn't be a television provider though.
yea and those cities have terrible internet service plus they are few and far between. you may also be talking about city ordinences which award a company the right to lay infrastruture in that jurasdiction because they city doesnt want their roads torn up a hundred times by competing companies. im talking about private industry paying labor to lay cable and research new technology to deliver a better product at a lower cost. in europe they use public funds and city planners to design an infrastructure. it is ultimately way more expensive.
One thing that article doesn't say is that government internet could have done that job in about 2 hours! Now that the seacom cable has been installed we should all be seeing 4MBPS connections fairly soon
Im happy when i see stuff like this as it confirms that no matter how bad Oz broadband is theres places worse alla South Africa yay.
holy crap, did you know i'm faster than the internet in australia? i just walked 2KM with a 1TB HDD, and had barely uploaded 20MB in the time it took me!
(sorry, had to say it...)
Thats amazing Mussels u dererve a cookie & cream
Wow, you guys get crazy download speeds! Top I've hit is about 200kb/s...
Maybe its because I haven't downloaded anything since I forwarded my ports, maybe that will make a difference... But no where near to 1 MB/s...
(BTW: I am in Canada...)
pigeons may get shot down by AK47 bullets, so the delivery time is greatly exaggerated
