Sometimes Microsoft will give an estimated time of downloads on its software, it is always based on a 28.8 Kbps connection, as in the link from powerless regarding WM10 click here (54 min @ 28.8 Kbps) . Is there anyone ANYWHERE that has a 28k modem??..and are you brave enough to admit it :o)

I have a V92 56k modem, but I often can connect at only 28.8k due to my location.

Same as alnwrd, connected at 28.8 right now.

I suppose if they mention the download time for the slowest connection, it will be easy for 56k and BB people to estimate that their downloads will be quicker. BUT if for example download time for 56k or BB connection is given, then if you have 28.8k connection, you won't have a clue of how long it may take you, it will a lot harder to guess.
