Then A in ADSL stands for "asymmetric". So 10 Mbps means something like 1 megabyte per second downloadspeed (maximum, not guaranteed) and far less upload speed. That should be in the specs. With, say, 1 Mbps upload speed that's some 100 KB a second (not guaranteed either). So a 1 GB video should take 10.000 seconds (3 hours) to send.
Skype, even with video in webcam quality, wouldn't be a problem however.
i'm living in spain for a year and need internet badly. the plans that are prepaid and are monthly don't have enough bandwidth to run skype and upload videos to my girlfriend, which would be the main purpose of my internet use. is ASDL 10 Mb any good? can it run skype, and more specifically, the video?
i will have my own router with the plan.
