many,

developing cuntry in asia like Malaysia, Indonesia, Timor Leste....

In indonesia fast internet calld as broadband is only 384kbps for download and 64kbps for upload.

downloading 100MB will take more than 1hrs.

this "Direct2Drive" must be NOT targeted for asia.

We just got DSL in here in rural ville and it dose not cover all of it,only 50 or 60% of the US is covered by 200KBS+ DSL......


I will admit D2D has a excellent setup I do hate the pricing but there are mostly not to blame on that, Steam is eaqul to starforce IMO I wont touch it.

My mother-in-law has 56k as well as my sister in law. I have DSL, and since I'm in Ontario, I dont have to worry about getting sued by the RIAA/MIAA like you do.

Happy downloading ;)

That is correct. D2D is a USA based company that ONLY sells to USA currently (i believe). (too much international credit card fraud)
