    I hope so, having a netbook, with WiMAX.

    what needs to happen is for the private ISP companies to disappear or to join together, and rather than pay them a monthly fee, everyone pays a little extra on there concil tax each year and WiMax for the whole area, ideally a 2mb/s connection because really a home user dosen't need anything much faster, if you do then your a torrent git! Then we can all get online really easy!

    More and more services are becoming web based, like applying for a TV licence, Drivers licence, and even paying some bills.

    2mb/s? Sling your hook! I'm used to 8mb now and wouldn't want any less.

    2mb/s. Tch.

    What do you use that bandwidth for? 8mb/s is bloody fast, not the fastest but still!
