    Nothing - I worked from home for years with 2mbs and then 6.5mbs

    I now have 70mbs itís made very little difference for work, itís improved downloading movies and playing games.

    Quite.

    ... download speed recommendations from modem manufacturer NetGear:

    • 5Mbps or less: Basic web surfing and email
    • 5-10Mbps: Web surfing, email, occasional streaming and online gaming with few connected devices
    • 10-25Mbps: Moderate HD streaming, online gaming and downloading with a moderate number of connected devices
    • 25-40Mbps: Heavy HD streaming, online gaming and downloading with a lot of connected devices
    • 40+Mbps: Hardcore streaming, gaming, and downloading with an extreme number of connected devices

    Quick turnaround work which required me to download very large files. Quick turnaround as in, by the time I'd downloaded the files to work on, the job should have been done and sent back to client. 11mbps was the max download speed I got, usually it was about 9mbps but upload speed was only about 4mbps.

    Look at the experts claiming they know better without any idea of what the work involves. I'll give you a hint, downloading a 20GB file with a 9mbps connection takes over 5 hours (assuming the connection doesn't drop). Not much use when you only have 2 hours to do the job
    So not 'quite'.

    Barring the occasional email none of my work is online.

    You've made multiple posts based on the Tory's figures, you've even told us how it will hurt UK tax payers for generations to come. Was all that based on figures that you don't trust? You appear to be doing a spot of back pedaling since it's been pointed out that the figures are flawed.

    Does nobody want to chat about the conservatives potentially facing a police investigation regarding offering peerages and post election jobs?

    You missed quoting the bit where I said I trust the figures as fully accurate, oh thatís right, I didnít. What I have said, is that I personally think it will be more, if he does everything he keeps tweeting and they have said in press releases and media interviews etc.

    You have a lot more faith in Corbyn than I do. Meh

    You also donít live in the U.K. so who gives a fuck what you think.

    Doesn't really matter in your case, seeing as you don't seem capable of understanding them anyway

    Not really, I'd just rather wait until the manifesto is actually released and some independent analysis is done of the figures before making any judgements.

    Someone must give a fuck, seeing as I still get to vote. Maybe I'll vote Labour, after all I won't have to pay for it
