      Cool The most you've downloaded in a day?

      Just reading my Netmeter stats

      12.5 GB is the most I've downloaded in 24 hours on my 38meg Fibre connection. No doubt someone has probably beaten that

      Re: The most you've downloaded in a day?

      I did some tests to quash the sceptics when I was on Sky Broadband Unlimited as many didn't believe it was 'truly unlimited'. I managed to download nearly 2TB in a month.

      Others were doing 3TB+ per month.

      In my first month with Fibre I have only managed to download 309GB as I was busy doing various other things. The upload was around 650GB though.

      It really depends on what you are doing and what you intend to download. It also depends on how much storage space you have and how you use it all.

      I have about 4TB spare on my two NAS drives and another two 2TB drives available to use it I need to but there is only so much I can watch in a day.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      I once did 30 - 40Mbit/s constantly for 3 days (Limited by the CPU in the router as it was over an L2TP tunnel) sadly I don't have a snapshot of the weekly graph it seems :-(


      Also downloaded a load of games off steam the other week + Starcraft2 onto my other laptop before going away to visit friends.
