    Totally depends on the connection speed of the person from whom you are
    downloading the file (as well as the file size, of course). I have
    downloaded songs in less than 30 seconds.


    CIAO!

    Internet speed is based on a 2 way connection, the speed Comcast gives
    you AND the spped theo ther person has. BOTH have multiple things
    affecting them...Comcast normally gives 6mbps download speed and 1mbps
    upload speeds for people with multiple Comcast Services. The other end
    depends not only o ntheir internet conenction but also on how many
    conenctions they have open at any one time. ie you go to Amazon.com
    and start downloading songs, they have a HUGE server and can support
    maybe 200 or more connections all at the same time before each is
    degraded. A home user cannot serve more than one or maybe 2
    connections before each gets their speed cut because the internet is
    being split between each user.
    Comcast compared to dial-up Comcast SCREAMS! Compared to most DSL
    Comcast is faster. Compared to FIOS, 15mpbs download and 15mbps
    upload, Comcast sucks! Not ALL FIOS is 15/15 or faster, sometimes
    people only pay for 6mbps download and 2 mbps upload. FIOS does offer
    other plans.

    Their standard package is 6Mbps down and 384k up. Their speed tier is
    8mbps down and 768k up.

    When I used to do that, I would hide behind open Socks proxy
    servers, so I could not be traced by the recording indistry in America

    Yet as we speak Comcast is rolling out Blast speeds, 16/1 or 16/2 for their
    Speed Tier customers. I got upgraded to 16/2 here in November. No
    additional cost. Also DOCSIS 3 is rolling out as well. Already began
    Wideband speeds (50/5) in the Minn/St Paul area. Not cheap though. $150
    monthly
