doomed to failure
256kbits? Otherwise known as the entire upwards bandwidth of a fixed rate ADSL line, over half of ADSL MAX home and a third of MAX business.
Anyone sensible is going to throttle that, especially since in many ISPs upwards bandwidth counts towards your monthly allocation..
It might.. just.. work as downloadable TV content that isn't around forever. Youtube only works because it (mostly) has lots of bandwidth. Torrents for TV programmes tail off very quickly, and after a week, fortnight max it'll be taking an aeon to download.
It's lovely that all these new services are coming in just as people are being capped. I think I'll hang onto my slow, but unlimited 512Kb/s connection.
