Just how much can be downloaded in 6 hours?

TIME is the limiter. How many bits per second was that?

1000 kBps or 125 kilobytes per second, or .125 decimal megabytes per second ...
7.5 megs per minute, or 450 megs per hour, or .45 decimal gigabytes per hour ...
2.7 gigabytes per day.

Not enough to fill a DVD.

84 gigabytes per (31-day) month. There's the limit of a saturated connection.

Do you want fries with that?

I dunno about you, but when I upgraded OpenOffice, it cost me more than the previous version did.

About 6 megabytes more.

Oh, yes you Americans may scoff, and think that's funny, or worse, irrelevant. But out in the real world, (well, my little part of it,) there is a cost associated with data transfers.

Just not a really big cost. But it's there.
