noob question
How long would it take to send like 5gig of info through digidelivery if I do not have the hardware and I am on cable internet? Is it pretty solid? I cant afford the LT/GT but I dont really need them to send files right?

Re: noob question
I'm not sure I follow.
When you say you don't really need "them" do you mean the LT or GT servers?
There needs to be one server on one end for a transfer to take place.
Depending on your Up/Down speed, 5 gig could take some time.

Not sure I answered your question or not.

Re: noob question
I see, I thought that you can send media through Digidelivery without having to buy the hardware. Thanks!

Re: noob question

I am interested in purchasing a GT Digiserver and I would like to know what you mean by 5 Gig would take "some time". Assuming both sender and receiver have high speed cable/DSL...how long would it take to upload and download a 5 gig file???

Re: noob question

If the server resides on your network, it would be a matter of 10 minutes or so for you to upload or download a 5 Gig delivery. A delivery that size across the internet at standard cable/dsl rates might take 5-6 hours.

You can test your up/down speed here: http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/
(copy the address into your browser or click in the address and hit return after the "Forbidden" message, DUC can't link directly for some reason)

So if you have Digidelivery on your end, transferring 5 gig to the DD from you computer on the LAN side might take 10 Min.
But depending on what your Up speed is will determine how fast it transfers to the WAN side ie your client.
5 gig could take over 10 hrs.

Re: noob question
You would need to be sending it to someone with a server if you don't have one. Depending on your upload speed, it could take a while. Most DSL is ADSL, which means you fast downloads, slow uploads. "Real world" about 10% less than "advertised" download speed and the upload on ADSL can be 1/2 to 1/4 of that.

I am 3000 ft. from the phone office with a 1500 SDSL and normally I get around 1270 up and down.

You can go online and do a speed check and figure it out from there.
