49 MB/s over the internet is totally doable, it's only 500Mbps. Any 2 servers with gigabit NICs will do.

Sorry, went to your link and did not see anything confirming a single client-server connection can achieve said speeds across the atlantic for a bulk download. Can you elaborate?

The transatlantic cables are terabits in capacity, they can easily meet that speed, the bottle necks are at the ends. So the question is whether or not the DNC could upload at that speed. I'd assume they'd have a business connection so almost certainly. As for russians downloading at that speed, like I said they can operate multiple servers to parallel process the download if it was an issue, but i doubt it was.

The rate being close to USB is interesting but I don't think its safe to assume that we have any evidence to confirm it was the DNC when it could have simply been a remote download, or hell, given how lax their server security was, how hard would it have been for someone on russian payroll to just break in and download on a USB that way?

This guy is an American Hero but he's making alot of assumptions that i'm afraid don't really constitute reasonable deduction let alone proof.

The rate being close to USB lines up with the statements of Wikileaks' Assange who insists the leak was not from any state actor and that of Crarig Murray, an associate of Assange who claims to have been the go-between for the source & have been physically given the data.
