        Network: Currently I have 500Mbit ( I have switched recently )

        I suppose 100Mbit isn’t enough.

        Hi, I changed internet provider and now I have 500 Mbit

        @node-applications If 100Mbit is not enough and RTX2080Super is not enough, could you update requirements here Build Your Node ?

        It is my application. Result of Bandwidth test on :
