yup, almost 72% of steam users still use windows7
I had to look that up. Correct. And growing!
However, also note:

That'll throw a spanner in to the other stats, huh?

I could try it, the problem is where I live I basically have to be outside for a reception, 20 mins from the state capital.
Farkennel...that's bad. I had problems in the past, I bought a telstra prepaid 4g device and used it as a backup with an external antenna, all in the upper story window. Worked very well, although this is a bit pricey option, and you really want to be on the telstra network with a telstra subscription - other providers piggybacking on T network are 'second rate customers'. (tested!)
Edit: and of course pings are still nothing to brag about...
This one is a bit mental. And if you're wondering what happens if you hit a bale, go to 5:58
So if there is a few guys keen, we can do a rally cross session online together? Haven't loaded up dirt in quite a while and even when it was new I couldn't find any online racesI've got dirt rally, it's pretty cool. Anyone interested in doing some rally cross, actually, can we still connect online with this?
I don't know, I never do rally-x

You can actually do rally racing, set up you own rally "season" and run it - we used to have that on the arse forums. One race run week. It's not bad, if there's enough interest and someone willing to do the administration
That's the ISP problem not nbn. Backhaul is expensive from nbn so ISP scrimps on it.
Grat, do you know that on fttn, the node has only 2 (two) fibers active from the box to the exchange? (there's a third spare one)
When you have hundreds of people on it, it's feasible that you get congestions.
Having said that; Phil; try Aussie Broadband I've mentioned in the opening post. These guys don't seem to have big evening congestions, and you can test them for a month, free of charge.
(Internode is also pretty congestion free at peak hours, but I don't know of any free trial offers)
....Any decent pc rally games? Any?
Well, Dirt Rally isn't too bad if you haven't tried it yet...
Hey Bird, you can host all our servers now.
Well, the 80mbps upload does make server hosting possible to an extent.
Ok, not just that. But mostly
I'm testing Aussie Broadband - they've a standing free month offer - and importantly, a 150/100 plan - the above result is as tested at 4:30pm friday here on said connection.
Interesting to note that the ping isn't that shiny. My usual ping (as some of you know) is 3-4ms on my current Internode connection.
( But then I can d/l at ~15MB/s from steam and/or Amazon s3 - and upload at blistering speeds, too, which is pretty handy for me for work )
Edit: attached the steam test

Sounds like a bit of a rip-off, tbh. With the stationary wheel, and the seemingly low range of motion...
I'd rather get a 401. It's around $50k US, so I expect it'd come a bit cheaper, even shipped.
