Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Well, technically I ordered/bought it a while ago but my fibre-optic connection finally got activated today. It's only FTTC but once the connection settles down over the next week, I should get about 75/25 download/upload speeds according to the connection checker the engineer used. Already I'm getting about 50/15. Coming from about 2.5/0.5, the improvement is wonderful. Admittedly, the only benefit I notice is when watching streaming video in HD as I'm a fairly typical user that doesn't do anything else particularly speed-intensive, but it's still nice to be able to watch in HD. No more buffering icon.
