Did I see someone say the internet in the USA was not really that good compared to the rest of the world?



- A 1u server acting as router and VPN server with 4 1.5TB disks.
- A 1u testing server with two 1.5TB disks.
- A 2u server—formerly a "colo box"—with eight 750GB disks
- A 4u Solaris/ZFS backup machine with 24 1TB disks
- Another 4u server—houkouonchi's main server with 24 2TB disks and two 3u storage expansion units, each with 15 3TB disks.
- A 2u "Windows/miscellaneous" server with eight 1TB disks
- Two 2u uninterruptible power supplies
- Another 4u Solaris/ZFS server for backups with 24 1TB disks

In another unrelated off topic request. Could we get some list BBCode?

I thought houkouonchi must of had his own servers ever since I've joined, and seen him, on BakaBT (a semi-public anime tracker) he's uploaded a little over 2PB so far..

So, I wonder when Telecom plan to launch their 77TB plans?

xD

I mean, US internet is not that impressive compared to NZ, right?

A particular GPForums user on Go Large in 2009:

They were doing 100-180gb per day, crazy.

I can't remember if it was on go large or big time but that "secret" youtube.com referrer in your download manager that made all your downloads go at line speed was pretty funny.

Think that was Go Large

On Big Time there was another method of bypassing the throttle but you had to know someone

This has nothing to do with Internet and more to do one a single person using the connection to the extreme, completely unrelated to the average John Doe.

High geek factor, but unrealistic for most people around the world (or even in the US alone).

Sure, but would it be possible for someone to utilise a residential connection in that manner here?

Why not? The difference is that you'd have to pay over the allowance...

Which means it is not possible to do so, at least not in the same manner. Hence the difference between the internet here and the internet there.

The same type of fibre is available in New Zealand. The bits are the same. The Internet is the same.

What's different is consumers have different plans available, depending on the reality in each country. If that's so important to you, act to change it.

But really, what that guy is doing is not what most people are using the Internet for.

Theoretically yes. Orcon have unlimited 100Mbps fibre.
This guy was on 300mbps, so has more capacity to use, but the principle is the same.

Orcons has a fair use limit, but then so does Verizon. They were just very very slow at catching up with him.
