Stranger Than Fiction
I have no idea where this belongs so I'm guessing. At any rate I'm bored here at work and browsing some torrent sites (funny they block anything with "games" in the URL but p2p is fine) and I saw something that raised a question for me. Basically one of the sites said something like if you want to be come an uploader you must have at least a 10 mb upload. I've got 5mb down and like 256k or some crap up. What I'm wondering is what kind of connection provides 10 mb up? It's gotta have some obscene downstream speed and I'm guessing some equally obscene cost but I've never seen anything like this advertised. One of my friends is a networking tech at a phone company and he claims they can bump their dsl up to 20up and down for corporate clients but he won't tell me what it costs. Any idea what you'd need for a speed like this or how you go about getting it?
