Slowest Connection

by TheChas In reply to 6-7GB data

Data can only move as fast as the slowest point in the path.

The only way to transfer the data faster is if your friend can get to a different location that has a faster connection.

All of the speed up methods that are used rely on either multiple streams through a slow connection or making use of idle time in a connection.

The only other option would be if your friend was able to make multiple connections that would speed up the data transfer rate from his end.

It could be worse. One of you could be on a dial-up connection and limited to 48K transfer rates.

Seriously though, if you're going to do a file transfer, you'd better use a download manager or file splitter.

Don't do it as a single get half way through and it fails how will you feel?

Looks like rickk is right.

He's not being a smart@ss. Use Fed-X or Priority Mail. Simple. You've lived without that data for this long a few more days won't kill you.

My thoughts exactly!

Express mail if you need the data in a hurry, but you won't be able to download it in the time it would take to arrive in the mail. It's probably the best option, even though not technically an IT answer.

According to my Calculations

by rkuhn In reply to Procedure

To transfer that much data over that slow of a connection it would take at least 12 hours (under ideal conditions).

By ideal conditions I mean 1-2 MB up and down like a T1. Most cable and DSL connections are more speed down and less up. For example, my DSL at home is 6 MB down but only 1 MB up.

Add less than ideal conditions, setup time, etc and seriously man, just FedEx it.

Overnighting a DVD or some CD's would cost <$20. You could have had it by now taking out all the time you've spent on TR waiting for some magical answer.

You appear to know what the 'proper' answer is already.
