In the game 'Hack:EX', you can do multiple processes at a time: cracking passwords, hacking phones, or uploading/downloading software. While you're waiting, and you decide to purchase an upgrade, such as from 2GS to 3G network speed, does the change happen right away, or when you go and start another task?

It appears that after buying the upgrades, I had about 15 processes immediately complete, so I'm assuming it takes effect immediately
