Different views on what's realistic? Will Freenet just be a US or bandwidth rich countries project? The government in New Zealand has decided that 256/256 is the highest broadband speed that our telecom monomoply needs to make available to competitors. :-( 128/128 is the fastest connection available domestically without a monthly bandwidth cap that Freenet would blow out of the water in 5 days. There aren't any business level connections that wouldn't be prohibitively expensive. Which leaves academia (and even per department most would frown on Freenet). Ok I appreciate we're just in a sucky part of the world. I get the impression others are too. But when I read: *** From: Toad <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Subject: Re: How much download?

I'm amazed that the above still works... *** and you're amazed that 256/128 works (if I'm reading it correctly) then that leaves me out of the cold, and you're suggesting bandwidth needs to be at least 1024/256 for you to expect Freenet to work. _______________________________________________ Support mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://news.gmane.org/gmane.network.freenet.support Unsubscribe at http://dodo.freenetproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/support Or mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]
