    I had a 1mb from Blueyonder and it did suck the big one for the first two months, then magically came to life!

    Reminds me... my girlfriend is getting a 10mbps connection in her apartment next month, while a friend is waiting on his VDSL 26mbps connection before Christmas... this is, of course, in Sweden.

    Bah.

    Their entire population of their country is less than Greater Manchester too, bah!

    Here's me with a 512k ADSL connection

    Well, I had to scrape together the finances for a new 120gb drive earlier this week after getting sick to death of writing CDRs Shame all filesharing was blocked though, as were most games. Enemy Territory worked, but it was a shame that it coincided with my Finals. Enemy Territory won

    Yep, you just can't beat JANET (academic backbone in the UK) - I've had some terrifyingly fast downloads, especially when the steowdants are away. They're back soon
