I’m posting this on the 5th of March 2009.
I’m doing it for posterity’s sake so I can look back and remark just how shit the UK’s infrastructure is.
Some people in the country are lucky enough to have nice fast connections. It seems that wherever I tend to choose to live, the infrastructure is actually rubbish.
The next place I choose to live will be WHOLLY, WHOLLY based on how fast the internet *ACTUALLY* is. I’m not sure how I’m going to discover this. I’m actually connected at about 8megabits per second. The throughput is about 15-20k a second upload and about double the speed download.
I’ve been uploading 200gb of data to ZumoDrive. I’ve been doing it for almost 24 hours.
Here’s the current status:
Read that and weep. It’s managed to upload about 2,000 files so far.
But FIVE months? FIVE?
I look forward to reading this post in 10 years time when hopefully something will have changed.
By the way this is not representative of ZumoDrive. It’s my connection.
