    I think it depends on who you are. Personally I'm happy with anything that I can download within a few minutes or so depending on how big the file is. I don't really care though. Downloading really depends on the server you're downloading from. I've downloaded from sites at over 1 megabyte per second (I have Comcast) and at the same time I've downloaded from sites that were 2 kilobytes per second with the same connection. I also download things that take me a couple of days even though I have a fast connection.
