You win ; )    

Just ran a test and average about 65^/65v
Checked and Verizon (my carrier) offers up to 500/500,
but don't see the need for mastering sized transfers.

Getting loads of files for mixing and/or video would be another issue
where maybe you'd want at least 100 and up

Yeah, we absolutely don't need that kind of bandwidth right now, but it's nice to be future proofed. Plus it's only about €30 a month, including all the extras (telephone, internet, hard drive, wifi, TV, all networked etc.) In full disclosure, we are actually a showcase building for FREE, (one of the main internet companies here in France) as our apartment building's owner is an ex satellite installation guy and begged them for it as he's a long term customer who knows what he's talking about. :) Not sure of all the technical details, but each apartment has it's own separate 1GB fibre line, not shared amongst the whole building etc. Do count ourselves lucky, but what to do with all that bandwidth? Like I said earlier, we are waiting for the rest of the internet to catch up and rarely get anything near our max speeds, at least on download.

Having said all this, I have techy friends in Japan with even faster internet. :)

Unfortunately DropBox just redesigned their user interface (last week) and it's a big unintuitive mess!
Seems the computer science generation can't leave well enough alone, often the enemy of "good" is "better"!
Same happened to Hightail, basically unusable GUI.
And I'm an optimist, always looking on the sunny side :~)>

The good news though is you really don't have to use their website for much of anything. The Dropbox sync app works very well, and you can copy download links directly from the Mac Finder by right clicking. I would assume there is a Windows equivalent to this.

I just make a new folder for each month in the Dropbox sync folder, paste files in there as I need to send them, right click to get the download link (even if the upload will take awhile), paste the link into my email to the cleint and forget about it. No web browser needed. When the month is over, I unsync that folder from my local storage and make a new folder.

Occasionally I go on the website to restore a deleted file or do something out of the ordinary but weeks go by without even going on the website though I send many files per day via Dropbox.

Just my two cents.

Yikes!!!

And to think I was fairly happy with Rogers Cable 110 down and 12 up!

They have Bell Fibre in my neighbourhood now. Maybe I will take another look, but dynamic IP was a bit of a deal breaker when I spoke with them last.

But your later description makes it sound like your building houses an internet hotel.

No, not an internet hotel, what gave you that impression? Just a regular 1886 apartment building, one apartment on each floor, seven floors. As I said, the landlord/owner, who lives in the building, is an ex-satellite man and knows his comms stuff. As a long term and knowledgable customer, he begged FREE to give us the full fibre works, so in January 2016 we finally got it (you can obviously see when in the graph I posted). Each apartment has its own separate 1GB line, nothing is shared. I don't think it's that normal for France/Paris yet, but I'm very happy we have it, and that we are so future proofed, and for just €30 a month (with all the other stuff) I am not complaning. :)
