max i ever get on steam is 2mb, this would be great (pwhittak) add us
The the madness begin, i mean everyone is looking for faster internet! Must get faster speeds!!!!! I word love to have my internet 100x faster but 1000x is madness! lol (Not saying i don't want a 1000x faster internet...)
"But just to know someone is working on making our Steam downloads even
faster helps us sleep easier at night."
You might just not sleep with all that speed when its done...
Steam downloads are fast, maybe a little shy of 2mb; I feel happy when that happens. I feel ashamed I ever felt that, 1000 times faster!! that's banana's, bring it.
This is great news as more and more we are streaming HD videos and using massive amounts of bandwidth with every passing year.
Kudos MIT students.
Inspector, no internet is fast enough. People would like to download anything at speeds not possible by current standards. That's why I see people with signatures showing a unknown internet provider that shows speeds higher then what I can currently gain. Let's face it, we're all speed whores here; plus this will be beneficial once bandwidth intensive web applications start to pop up.

I'm having trouble even imagining that. I remember when I switched from 56k to Cable internet, thinking 'This is it, it can't get any faster'. For me browsing is relatively instant right now. I know it would help with downloading large files, but with ISPs clamping down on heavy users I'm not so sure...
I have 10MBPs now and it seems fast to me, but 100 would be better. Like Sackyhack, 1000 is more than I can even imagine. I was stuck on dialup @24,600 baud for many years when I lived out in the sticks, so what I have now, I appreciate.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Now i say this is cool. on steam the max i got was 3.2 mb/s
I remember 2400 baud ,9400 , 14600 , 56k 5m/1m , 10m/2m now , its never enough . When is the new speed coming . Its never enough
On Steam I usually hit 2MB/s or 16Mbps.
It's pretty decent... but when you're trying to download a 10GB game... it seems rather slow. lol
Usually i'll just leave a game downloading over night. :-) But if it was 1,000x faster.... That game would be done in 5 seconds... wooo! Now that would rock! (if my SSDs could write at 2GB/s that is lol)
Once again the storage is the bottleneck.
Time to bring back ramdrive? ;-)
It would work good as a temporary median/buffer before it is perminantly saved :-)
