    I've been waiting years for this to reach me, now I have to scour the underbelly of the internet to make full use of it.

    I know no one cares but I've been waiting 3 years for BT to get their arses in gear

    This should open up a whole new world of fast paced on-line gameing for you , if your into that sort of experience.

    Nice to have broadband. Certainly is an improvement over the old 56K modems I used to use. Waiting for a website to come up... no more! :thumbsup: Hard to imagine internet access before broadband these days.

    I love it. I've already downloaded dozens of Futurama episodes - much easier than getting up at awkward hours to watch it on Channel 4

    I think I'll stick with 64 kilobyte broadband - all the "good" stuff I want I can only find on P2P/bittorrents and I'm lucky if I get a speed higher than 20 kilobytes on them. I usually get speeds that are barely double what I were getting on dialup.
