Drooler (220) 500, but I can go lower! It's just that the "Big Kahunas" would take too long at 200.

I have this weird fascination sometimes with how fast the files are flying in. Imagine, in the '70's, tracking Playboy delivery trucks with a radar gun. That's pretty weird.

Colm4 (10) Mine is really 400. It's not exactly acceptable but anything lower then that, and I will probably quit the site.

Denner (235) 500 is ACCEPTABLE - but I'd prefer somewhat higher as a downloader primarily of videos...
And a question to the more tech-wizards than this user:
Got an ofer by a provider which is quite fast - I think 10 Mb/sec. - but of course it's more expensive monthly - and is it worth it? Are there any pornsites that can live up to that? (only use/want pornsites for fast downloads like this - all other tasks can do with a lot less).

Jeffrey99 (29) I wish I could even sniff 500. LOL I live in a small town with crappy DSL. So, I'm really happy if I'm running in the 120 range bur normally it's between 80-100.

RagingBuddhist (65) I'll take 300-400 and be happy. What annoys me are the servers that start at 800 and steadily drop to something like 50. And those are usually the servers that don't allow the use of download managers, so it takes forever to get even a 30 meg file.

pat362 (373) 200 is acceptable but I prefer a higher download speed. One of the problem with the advent of HD is that many are going to be disapointed in the download speeds.

atrapat (112) 200 kbytes/s, which is 2/3 of my top download speed. I wonder what would be the results of this poll if the options weren't absolute values but percentages of you maximum download speed.

PinkPanther (46) I've decided that Comcast cable

a) boosted download speeds considerablly and then
b) put a dampener so that the maximum total that could be downloaded is 525 kb/sec

I used to consider 200 kb/sec to be decent, but Comcast cable has boosted speed quite a bit in the last several months - but considering that I see sites where downloads start at 800 kb/sec+ and then start decreasing, I believe that they have a dampener in effect - probably to make sure that no individual users hog their broadband capabilities too terribly much.

james4096 (126) I have crappy internet too, but I'd say 200. These days top porn vids are at least 300 MB. I'm a patient person when it comes to download speed so in reality I could deal with 50.

RagingBuddhist (65) REPLY TO #8 - PinkPanther :

I can't believe I'm standing up for Comcast because they're a pain to deal with, but the speed dropping isn't necessarily all Comcast's doing. I wouldn't doubt they squeeze traffic whenever they can and I don't know the specifics of the different kinds of servers, but I do know there are some that start out super fast and drop off quickly. Speeds that fade out are usually the result of the site having one of those servers.

turboshaft (24) 500 kb/sec is acceptable in general, and usually not too frustrating. 200 kb/sec is okay if just for a few photos, but a whole set, or even a single video, and it is frustratingly unacceptable.

I have had speeds with at least one site at around 1.4 mb/sec -- nice! Even if I don't like the videos or photos I have downloaded, the sheer speed at which they landed on my hard drive is almost enough to make up for it.

That sucks Jeffrey99! My thoughts are with you in the hopes that one day you will enjoy faster porn. I feel that it is part of our inalienable rights -- life, liberty, pursuit of happiness -- and we should all have it in this day and age.

jd1961 (95) My ISP has improved so much over the past year that I voted 500, but really that's too slow for me now.

badandy400 (103) I said 500 because my home DSL gets about 350.

Now if I am on the college connection it better be about 20 times faster. Most sites are actually about to put out 50 or so MBit/s and some even higher. Incredible Pass, the devils, was the fastest I ever seen when they sustained me at 90 MBit/s for several hours.

I have found the trick to getting the most of your internet connection is to download more than one thing at a time. Even better is to use two sources. This will virtually always insure there is no slack in your speed and allow you to maximize your porn intake. I frequently get about 250 KByte/s from a single connection, single download. If I simply add one more download, or connection, I bump it up to my current max speed here.

Believe it or not, there is a little bit of a science to porn hoarding. :)

anyonebutme (14) I'm patient, 50kbyte is fine, I understand that the site has to run on a budget, and an individual subscription barely scratches the surface of the total cost of a site. My max speed is 190KBytes/sec anyways, I love top video quality, and the longest a d/l has taken from a paysite was a 2gb 1080p video at 8 hours! 50KBytes/sec is fine by me, I've already accepted that I just have to plan porn viewing a day in advance. And I don't join sites to do instant site-rips either, so...

alexmedia (22) 300-500 Kb/sec is ok for me because any way I can't download faster. Speed of internet is horrible at my place :(
