Just curious. How do you burn through 300 GB in a week? I think an hour of Netflix programming ~= 1GB, so 24x7 use of Netflix would be about 100 GB in a week. What's a bigger bandwidth hog than that?
This is actually an important question I would have asked myself yesterday.
Today, however, I have been trying to find a way to build an image for some android development kit. Every try for every different version pulls 60GB off some branch of codeaurora.org. Most likely something could be improved, but as of now that is how it goes.
In any case, while it seems insane, the faster the devices we work with, the 10x more insane the data we collect and need to move. Compressed video is ridiculously small compared to the TBs I have to deal with all the time. Waiting for these transfers are costing, especially when you know they would zip through in many other parts of the world.
It is very frustrating to wait for data when there is a fire to fight.
And I am sure ISPs have loads of b/w available. A few months ago, my connection was switched to 100Mbps, and it was that fast all the time. My provider must have realized its mistake and I am now back to 30... giving me back time to waste on
Not good. I mean I like this site, but I would rather be productive. And yes, after hours, I work from home, like I am sure many of us.
