Lads if I needed access to high speed internet for a 2tb+ upload how would be the best way to do that? For logistical reasons I can't leave the pc on for over 12ish hours.

Are there high speed internet cafés or something?

I think you've grossly miscalculated something. 2TB is a *shitload* of data. On the fastest available domestic broadband package, that'll take about 19 days to upload. It'll take about five hours on a completely saturated gigabit ethernet connection, assuming that your storage media can sustain 118MB/s reads. There's also the matter of where all that data will go.

AWS Disk Import is an option, although you'll pay about £60 for the privilege. You'll also pay about £33/mo in S3 storage fees and £64/TB in transfer charges. Backblaze B2 offer considerably lower storage and transfer fees, but they charge a small fortune for hard drive ingest.

If you're sending your porn collection to a mate, I'd just post them a hard drive.

The fastest and cheapest way to transfer that volume of data is in the post.

Hyperoptic offer a great product, but their coverage is minuscule - they only serve city-centre tower blocks where it makes economic sense to run FTTB and GbE to each dwelling. It'll be years, maybe even decades before ordinary suburban houses get symmetric gigabit connections.

Are you going to link to these stolen MI-5 files after you've done it or are you just going to tease us?

Apparently Google transports large amounts of data between their servers by dumping it onto flash drives and physically moving them about, because the bandwidth is better that way.

I mean you have to get your priorities straight for sure. Do you wants kids and a detached house or do you want to live in the 21st century?

Torrents are very good at handling unexpected cutoffs, so if you can deal with it over a few 12-hour days, perhaps use that? That way, it doesn't have to be one interrupted session.

What the oplad actually wants is rsync, torrents are great for NtoN distributions but not optimal for 1to1 upload/download.

I think what the oplad really really wants is a massive external hard drive, which will move that data faster than any IP connection he could ever hope to use.
