At my old house had 24 meg and loved it, I used to find it annoying when I bought 2 games on steam which were about 6 gig each and couldnt use my internet for about 4 hours, now I only have 3.5 meg so updates alone can take hours out of my day sometimes if I get a few at once.
The red car and the blue car had a race. Good old blue he took the milky way.
mb=/=MB=/=Mb. Most providers advertise their service as Mb/megabits, vs MB/megabytes, or mb/millibits.
I have a 50Mb connection now and I'm super happy with it, I can download games faster than I can install them via DVD. 5Mb is what I had before and anything slower than that I would call bad, with 5Mb falling into usable.
E: Also, most routers cap out at about 20Mb/s, as do most wifi devices. Faster is starting to become available but you'd probably have to go out and buy all new stuff. If you plan on using WIFI most of the time then the 25Mb package would be plenty.
It's the Ultimate marketing gimmick.
25Mbs sounds so much better than 3MB's, yet the latter is the only unit that makes sense in the way we use computers.
