My reason for not suggesting that is because:
- "fast" is relative too around the globe
- the user might have no better alternative and would be prepared to go 
  for it anyway, even over dial-up or GPRS or whatever.

Yes, pointing to another source that is constantly updated :)

For estimates of data to be downloaded see the
<a href="http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/apds02.html.en>Installation 

However, from reading that page it is not very clear to me if download 
size for the respective tasks includes "Standard" (I think it does) and 
"Standard" is missing from that table (only install size is mentioned in 
the beginning of the section), but it's good anyway.
