I'm in the UK, but I have a server in Atlanta, GA, USA with approx.
270GB of bandwidth per month. I'm not sure what the upload speed is, but
the download speed (when downloading from Cachefly) is about 11.15M/s.
That's with wget, and it doesn't say whether it's MB (Megabytes/sec) or
Mb (Megabits/sec). As I say, I'd been interested in doing it, but may
have to limit it to using only 200GB of my bandwidth per month or something.
