    I'm on wireless at home. My router is AC but my cards aren't. My IPS claims 60MB service, I get about 50 on my laptop wifi. It's usually the "other guy" who slows my downloads down but I can usually get a gig in 45 minutes or so downloading something from a newsgroup. Direct downloads are lots faster.

    I just did a couple of test direct downloads and it's about 6 minutes for me. I don't know how much overhead my laptop is using and as I said earlier, I'm on wifi.

    Nobody's mentioned doing anything illegal. In fact, it's against the rules here.
