    That (512KB/sec) is 2 seconds per megabyte. The file is about 2.5
    gigabytes (2,500 megabytes). should take about 5,000 seconds, which is
    only about 2 hours. And, indeed, on my cable modem the download was
    showing about 400KB/sec, and it took a bit, but not much, over 2 hours.

    My guess is that your speed is 512Kb/sec, not 512KB/sec. Eight times
    slower (but still more than 10x faster than dialup).

    As a matter of interest, how much does the "10Mb NTL broadband" cost per
    month?.

    Our cable was averaging around 500KB, but sometimes went up to 560KB, and
    sometimes went down to 400KB. Once, I got nervous because it went way down
    to 40KB a second and I thought that I was going to lose my connection to the
    download, but after two or three minutes, it went back up to 400KB/sec+.

    service as well.
