I kinda like that ISPs in the US have me so accustomed to low download speeds. It makes it to where I don't even notice a difference when switching to VPN because my VPN provides faster speeds than my own ISP is even capable of providing.

I never torrent anything more than the occasional linux distro- that and the rest of my downloads are legally purchased vaporwave from bandcamp & tons of free porn from reddit + 4chan.

Why does anybody even need fast internet? Unless you're a steamtard with a gigantic video game library and multiple computers, why would anybody need anything higher than 1.5mbps?

Same with video games. Why not wait 5-10 years to play the same titles on more affordable hardware, xkcd style?

Even if you are a steamtard, online gaming doesn't need much bandwidth, just good latency. Download some games overnight and play them the next day.

I'd be fine with not a lot of bandwidth in exchange for good latency, no data caps, and no filtered ports.

its nice to be able to stream 4k video

Because I wan't to be downloading a movie in at least 720p and watching it at the same time... so yeah, impatient manchild

I torrent everyday and seed 24/7 from my home connection, also have a server as a personal cloud, a NAS and a VPN to use from outside my home.

Doing all of that with 1.5mbps would be hell.

Why would I do this? Hardware to play games is cheap enough that it doesn't really register in the grand scheme of things. Wait that long and you're bound to get all kinds of shit spoiled for yourself, not to mention that MP is either going to be dead or only populated by extreme fans who will absolutely curbstomp you with their decade of experience playing.

1.5Mbps would be useless shit for me, I couldn't even properly access my home server or stream anything from it. I had faster internet than that even 10 years ago, I don't even think I can find any subscription that's so slow nowadays.
