Video: This is how long it takes to download Linux using Optimum Online Ultra


Day Three of Optimum Online Ultra. We discussed it at some length during yesterday’s podcast, which, need I remind you, ended in an explosion. You never know what’s gonna happen here at CrunchGear! Anyway, today I present a cruddy video showing how long it takes to download a Linux ISO—Ubuntu, from this mirror—because it seems like the cool thing to do.

Now, I can’t vouch for the quality of YouTube, but I can assure you that the download hovered right around 9MB/s for the duration. Now, that’s a 700MB file, and it took as long as it took.

The bottom line here is, yes, Optimum Online Ultra is fast.

Any other requests?
