Will bigger next game downloads on steam affect you?

My internet here sucks, so it would take forever for anything that size to download, it's not my fault, it's just how it is here, as far as space goes, pffft, will not affect me.

Canadian ISPs charge full price for welfare quality service.


I dunno my ISP's seem to be fine. You can get 100 Mbps down and 5 up with 500gb/750gb cap for 90/95 bucks a month (cheaper in bundles with cable and phone). I've read that to get a similar connection in some areas of the states you would be paying more then some people pay for mortgages on their homes. I will admit the down speeds are LAUGHABLE but that's a Canadian problem in general.

My other ISP offers 20 down/2 up for 60 bucks but it has no cap.

$95 a month is madness for internet.
As fast as that is... it's definitely not worth $95 a month.

That $60 is pretty good though... who is that, techsavvy? I'm switching to them when I move.

40-50 GB would take up to about half a day (~1.5 MB/s) . . . . I really wish America and Canada (as I intend to move back) would force all ISP's to give at absolute minimum like 5 MB/s.


Or you could just not be poor and pay for what you want


I never realized being poor was a choice. Wow, those starving children sure do have awful decision making skills. Don't they realize that all they had to do was decide not to be poor and they'd have expensive gaming machines, fast internet, and a fridge full of hot pockets?


If you have a gaming PC, and internet, you're by default not "starving african kid" poor. Thus, you have many options.

Such as a job.

So, yes, it is a choice.
