Thread: Downloading On 56k

  1. #1
    If To End All Wars is on Kazaa, then I would definetly download it. But I have a 56k. Has anyone ever tried dl'ing a movie on 56k before and how painful was it?

    i've downloaded a few movies and large files on 56k before

    just leave it to download over a couple of nights and you hardly notice

    plus you can use avipreview to preview what you have of it, so after a day you should have about half the film

    patience is the key

    when i had 56k dial up (10 months ago) i never bothered to download movies, it wasnt worth the hassle. But i did download large software files that i needed. It took me 3 to 4 days, but was worth it because i found them useful.

    Thankfully i have superfast broadband now , but still hate downloading movies unless it has good bandwidth and is of near dvd quality.

    If you are going to download a movie make sure its worth it and of good quality by previewing.

    a movie file of 100MB-200MB would take about 2-3 days. 56K download at the speed of 2kb-10kb. Sucks i know, LOL. I&#39;m using cable, I can&#39;t stand 56k.

    I still download movies on dial up, and I have about 60 movies, most of which I downloaded. I&#39;ve probably got about 20 from friends I suppose.

    It&#39;s not that bad, and if it&#39;s all you can afford, then that&#39;s it. I may get ADSL soon, but I have no job... so what are the chances ?

    Anyway, I leave the computer running 24 / 7, and whenever I&#39;m not doing something else, I leave it to download. I&#39;ve only really been doing so since I changed ISP to one with no download bandwidth or time limits, and they don&#39;t have session times, only disconnecting every few days.

    It takes 2 - 5 days usually, but that&#39;s fine with me. I always download music inbetween etc, and do a lot online. I get at least 100Mb done overnight most nights.

    i had dialup for about 5 years, and only abuot 2 months ago i got adsl.

    downloading on dialup wasnt that bad, just leave it on overnight and it will get done quick.
