Help testing bandwidth needed

We kindly ask You to assist us with some tests of our new server. Please let us know in the comments which download speeds You get, from which location and what is Your network connections bandwidth.

Test file: Link Removed

Thank You!

Edit (24.03.2011):
241 comments are more then we needed and a lot more then we have expected. Thanks to all of You who invested time trying to help us out testing our new server.

Conslusions from the test?
Most of the speed are satisfactory but there are times (1-3h during week days and some more during weekends) when the performance of our ISP drops quite significantly. We will be monitoring the sittuation and if the problems won’t be resolved in the near future we will be on the lookout for another provider.
