Yep, EPB. I have the 50Mbps up/down package. I heart it

There is a big difference between Mbps and MBps...

Its planned to be available to the public by 2015 and its only meant to cost £10 per month. Now I know that isn't much money for that speed (especially seeing as 50Mbps cost £12.50 and 100Mbps is £17.50) but its 5 times slower than the 1Gbps that will be in Lancashire.

ISP's advertise speeds in Mega-BITS-per-second (mbps)
Your dowloading at 3 Mega-BYTES-per-second (MBps)
1 Byte = 8 Bits, so youre just about on the spot....

30Mbps is 30 mega bits per second so the highest your download should be is 3 mega bytes per second. People do sometimes need speeds faster than 30Mbps like me, for high quality online gaming you need at least 25Mbps just on the console or PC, and in my house I have 3 desktops that are always running and most of the time streaming videos and then I still got 4 wifi phones which are also steaming videos sometimes and then there is also an iPod touch that my sister uses for the internet like going on facebook. I also have 3 laptops with wifi that are also on most of the time downloading updates and playing games online, and then there is my PS3, that uses most of the bandwidth because its always downloading massive updates for games and I also use it to watch TV from BBC iPlayer in 720i HD which uses a lot of bandwidth. So you might not need an internet connection faster than 30Mbps but quite a lot of families like mine need huge amounts of speed.

25Mbps is recommended but the minimum for most games is 720Kbps and I don't know if BC2 is laggy for you but the games that I play have huge amounts of lag with a 2Mbps connection

Well, 8x.

Kind-of unrelated but North Yorkshire was just given £20m out of the TV licence to get some decent internet. I'm willing to bet money that it won't come to my town though.

I usually play BC2 on GSN gaming's New York Heavy Metal 1500 ticket server.
My in game ping is usually 200, but i still manage to pwn everyone
I wonder what it will be like when i get a low latency connection with that fiber line that just went down my road (going to be a few more months before I can even find out if i can get some access put in though)

I don't think you will get the fibre line for free, you will probably have to call your ISP and ask if they can let you use it and chances are they will want a connection fee unless you are meant to be getting a fibre optic line, but it will be worth it connection fee
