How's *This* For a Fast Download

We’ve recently switched from a Sprint T1 line here at work to Cogent’s all fiber optic network. 100 Mbit/sec for $1000/month. That’s 66 T1’s (a T1 is ~1.5 Mbit/s) for around what you’d pay for a T1.

While downloading iTune for Windows, I managed to get a screenshot of the IE download status – yes, that’s 1.39 Megabytes per second!

I wish I could get Cogent at home… 🙂
