I would totally do this, but I wonder what kind of bandwith these hosts usually use up monthly.

I really need a lesson on how internet speed works for a residential user. I know that you're never going to get the speed you pay for because of all the choke-points (router, wiring, traffic, etc). But I don't understand how this works in relation to the servers uploading the content. Don't you also depend on the speed at which the files are being sent by the host? With all these factors how is it possible to download at true 100Mbps? Any links explaining this stuff would be appreciated.

One of the things that having high-speed relays (especially exit nodes) is that that they can serve many more pages into the TOR network. If 1000 users are all trying to access the internet through one exit node, it pays to have it be as fast as possible.

you wont find 100mbs residential in the states but Japan,Asia, Europe its becoming very common for blazing speed. It's just greed and the refusal to update old lines here by the telecoms that keep America in the slow lane on the internet.

In places with FIOS access you can find 100 mbps. My household had 100mbps ever since we bought our Dell Dimension 8400 in 2002.

I'd be down if my connection met the requirements. Unfortunately it does not.

100Mbps is kinda rare for a home user. Maybe someone lucky that has fios can benefit from this, or is involved in the google experiment.

My household has 100 mbps hmmm...It's odd seeing people drool over FIOS My zip code and several others near by were the original beta testers for FIOS so our who's going to get FIOS next war has mostly ended and we've had it for several years! It is by far the best provider however it is a pain to get set up right as the people at Verizon can never keep track of the features you want (they messed up phone, TV, and internet!). Once you work out the kinks however, the performance is great and the price is unbeatable.

I was curious what is considered high-speed connection. Then I saw "at least 100Mbps". Dang! My concept of fast speed is way off when 100Mbps is the minimum.

Well some lucky places can get 300Mbps access now ^_^ Man... download entire series in just hours instead of weeks lol.

I believe that they are looking for a min of 100Mbps upload speed.

correct, the "relay exit" would be same as "residential upload"
