Speed

I am on an extremely fast connection right now, and Bang Bros is bringing in about 18 MBit/s. This seems to be sub par compared to most sites. VideoBox has been giving me more than 60 MBit/s today, and fairly consistently.

The speed here needs to be better. For most people with smaller cable connections or low end DSL this should not be a problem. But for those lucky bastards with high end connections, 15 MBit and up might not like this as much. This testing was early afternoon though, I did not get a chance to test in the evening when more people would be on.

This did not seem to matter how many connections were open. I had 4 connections open and I had up to 18 connections open with them, the overall speed was the same. Many sites you can get some extra bandwidth from by open a good number of connections.

But reading in your profile, it seems the fast connection is not at home, it's (I'm guessing) either work or school ... and I'm guessing you're not paying for it. Am I right?

You are very observant! I have a 3 MBit hat home, and unrestricted access at the University. For example, yesterday I downloaded exactly 100 GB. I say $10,000 because that is what I pay to tuition! It would cost much more than that a month to have a connection like this at home! I know downloading from university sounds stupid, but they do not track traffic so that why they are not liable for what people do, steal music and such.

Of course that begs the question ...
How much would your porn surfing (and downloading) habits change if you were footing the bill for the big-pipe connection?

Honestly, not much at all! I download just as much from home as I do there. Home it runs 24/7, there I am only a few hours at a time. I would like to have a better connection here, it just is not offered at all since I live too far away from anything. The best I can do here is 3 MBit although I am very close to getting 5, but cant because they can only push 4.5 to my house :(

However, I am not "footing" the the bill directly, so I guess it makes no difference. On the other hand, it costs a lot of money to be there, so I might as well get use out of it. As I am told, the IT guys like that people go in on off hours and use the bandwidth because it assures them that it will not be taken away because it is never used. I am sure if they did not want me there they would tell me, I make no effort to hide who I am....of course I do not let people see what I am doing! Also, they make no effort to throttle connections, I frequently see 15 MBit from a single connection, most people browsing the web or reading email do not need this! I hope I did not sound like a jerk, it is a kinda interesting situation.

Monahan (42) BadAndy's point is the speed, or lack thereof, of the downloads, and he has a legitimate issue. But the focus was changed to how he accesses the web.

If my company sends me to Europe from Los Angeles and pays Business Class air fare on my behalf, is it wrong for me to complain about being assigned a middle seat in a sold out coach section just because it's my company that is paying my fare? Of course not.

The same applies to BadAndy. His beef is with download speed.

And yes, BangBros has a terribly slow download speed for their otherwise excellent site.

Thanks, I think? I can not say I exactly followed your analogy.

What it means is that it makes no difference who pays for something...it's paid for and thus the user is entitled to use it without restrictions.

You get high speed from your school because it's paid for and you're entitled to use it. So why the criticism by others of your source? It's not relevant.

Bottom line, your beef, as is mine, is that Bang Bros operates it's downloads at a very slow speed.

I got you...you analogy seemed worded fun, at least to me. Thank you for agreeing! The answer to he question about criticisms I would guess is a little jealousy, which is understandable. I would give shit to anyone with access to a connection like I have too, reason being that we all would not mind having one! Just as I am jealous of those people with 15 or 20 Mbit connections at home because I can only get 3.

Yes Bang Bros needs to work on their speed a little. It makes no difference to me here at 3 MBit, but when I can run up around 100 I would expect to be able to get a getter fraction of that speed from them. Hell Incredible Pass was running at 70-80 consistently! For Bang Bros I hope it is a result of throttling rather than not having enough bandwidth. At 18 MBit just a few more members would end up slowing things down if they are have any bandwidth issues. But I would suspect the connection is throttled.
