what's the most fun thing to do with a high speed internet connection?

#1
so pit, I moved into my university's halls of residence this week to find I have a download speed of 83.31 Mb/s and an upload speed of 60.62 Mb/s (tested at http://www.speedtest.net/).

Naturally I've been trying to think of what sort of awesome things I can do with this kind of firepower, besides the obvious benefits to general web-browsing convenience and downloads.

I ask you pit: what would you do with an unreasonably fast internet connection?

What you'd normally do on the internet, except faster.

When I was in halls I used the high speed to download torrents. I could easily get a GB in 5 minutes, it was awe-some.

My suggestion to you though would be don't get used to it because it is very hard when you have to say goodbye.

theres nothing remotely dangerous about it, businesses use it as a measurement tool

I wouldn't recommend the whole bittorrent thing, when I was in my first year using the university internet they were monitoring it and my friends' internet was banned for a while because he was using bittorrent too much (received an email with that reason). A reasonable amount is no problem, just don't overdo it...

Then again, your uni might be different.

I only ever used it to download the things i actually needed, which took a few minutes every day... he had it on all day and all night filling up external harddrives for no reason. So yeah, unless you are that crazy, you should be fine.

that's exactly the sort of thing i was thinking. but what online games dont require much graphical power but DO depend on amazing connection speeds?

well they depend more on your ping (latency) between server rather than your actualy download speed.

you're already doing it. there is absolutely nothing better on the internet than Teh Pit. anyone who says otherwise is a barnaclehead and should be ignored.

Yeah, me too, and I'm "supposed" to have a high speed internet connection. Damn companies scamming the hell out of us with fake high speed internet.

Our hardline conncetion is like, 20MB/s, so I would at least expect 5 out of a wireless connection, nope, I've been lied to.
