    25 mbs I would say.

    I have run stuff at 15 but it can be dicey depending on the stream/video.

    edit:

    To go with Bowen above-

    I have done 5 it was terrible.

    10 is uhhh...better? But if you are rotating steam games/big downloads 20-25 is my minimum.

    I enjoy it. It is acceptably bleak/horrifying and the space monsters are appropriately scary/gross.

    I do find it kind of hilarious that characters just suddenly start talking in plot exposition at inappropriate times, though.

    One of the anime cliches that has been getting my goat recently is when every goddamn character is suddenly this great wisened philospher. Like the young pilot will sit down next to the rogue officer and suddenly one of them will go into this detailed philosophy about the human condition.

    I watched Eureka 7 recently and this happened constantly. Goddamnit Japan. Not every member of your country is goddamn Socrates.

    Yeah if you're doing more than a single thing at a time you'll need more than 10.

    Netflix is the highest of the HD sitting near 5 mb/s, 10 will get you good and cozy, anything higher is just fluff

    The issue with things like cable internet is you'll be hit hard during peak hours (6-10pm) as others get on, so it won't honestly matter how much speed you've got, you'll probably always have 2.5 during those times.

    More eurotrash liveblogging
    We’re back! The hosts are dressed as vegetables and discussing their penises. To think, people used to masturbate this before the internet was invented. No wonder old people are so cranky.
    They’re interviewing a man who can tell the future by rubbing cauliflowers. My sincere apologies to any 13-year-old boys who sneaked upstairs to masturbate to this.

    Are you watching Knights of Sidonia?

    I liked the first season a lot. 2nd season lost me though.

    General consensus on bandwidth is 5-10 mb per person if they're heavy users.

    This is, like, a fundamental component of anime. All this dumb shit gotta relate to some vague poetic meaning that is usually stated really awkwardly.

    I absolutely hatelove it. It's the bestworst thing.

    The thing about Eureka 7 is that it is pants-on-head at all times.

    The other thing about Eureka 7 is that the art is pretty.

    Eh, I didn't think it go too weird till the end. For the most part the classic cool rebels vs. gubment plot worked fine.

    Unfortunately the city that offers gigabit as a municipal service is a little too expensive. If this place I applied doesn't work out I may end up staying in that city with other roommates but I couldn't afford an apt there alas. The apt where I applied is in the next city up, where my jerb is.
