You always type speed with bit and storage with byte.

That being said, how did you come to live in a place that cannot get cable internet? I am just curious if this was a choice or you were born here and are too young to move away or what. I have moved several times in the past few years and I cannot imagine not asking the relator who the local cable company was and what internet her office uses. How do people come to live in these god forsaken places??
they gave plenty of time to download it in most cases. that said 20gb should be manageable, though on my old connection it would have taken 2 days. meh. even still I got the invite 2-3 days in advance.
i was downloading it at 120kbs a second. I left it on all day and all night, and finished it with four hours to spare on friday. I'm just glad the download wasn't corrupted.
Bioware has also said that they had a nice chunk of bugs to sort through this stress test. Including once that loops the patcher ensuring the game never completely downloads. This was caused by a corrupt file or something on their server I believe. Their apology aside, this is why beta tests occur.
There will be a boxed retail version of the client at release.
But really, it's not BioWare's fault that you live out in the boonies (the UP or something?) and can't get good internet. It sucks and it's often infuriating that the US has such poor internet access, but there's nothing that can be done about it short of government intervention or just moving yourself to an urban area.
I'd just finish to download it so when early acces comes or if you get invited to another week-end you'll just need to patch it up
ive check the swtor/tester tester on tuesday and i saw i was invited and got the e-mail about the fact that i was invited on thursday and it took me 3 hours to download. next time guys check the swtor/test site every day.dont wait for the e-mail from bioware.
Hopefully, that boatload of issues will be fixed for the next weekend test. But then we'll also be dealing with ludicrous amounts of testers.
