Re: upgrade ???



If I am getting that download speed, then I am a cross dressing body builder...

But seriously - as a piece of advice - people who want to view this site on their phones, download Opera Mini. It's a f*cking fantastic browser. Works well on my phones (even if it is a bit dodgy on the LG)...

I agree Opera's server compress the pages before you download them making it faster to browse . I'm using it on my HTC Hero running Android 2.1.

Re: upgrade ???

Net speed in Australia is commonly far south of 20mb, I get 10mb/s and we're on what is pretty much the fastest connection in the country.

Re: upgrade ???

I have just moved in with the GF and the service she buys here is 10Mb - to say 20Mb is the basic standard is well, mmm, just guessing.

Saying that, VM are installing 50Mb tomorrow - I missed it too much

As for server hosting, Ben has that covered already

Maybe donated members get larger avatars

Stu, this is what I get with Virgin 50MB. Shame that upload speed isn't that good.

I know what the 50Mb service offers, I have had it since launch at my old house

I only moved on Saturday to my new place, which has 10Mb - hence why I am missing it - they are coming out tomorrow to upgrade here. Sorted

PS still not as good as the dedi server I run, as per sig

I'll second that Stu. I spend a fair bit of time out of the home, so do a fair bit of browsing on my phone, when i can get a 3G signal that is

Edit: What about people who live in the country and people who live far away from their nearest exchange? End of the line feeling!
