You have to laugh

An article in the UK Daily Telegraph caught my attention today, and made me laugh - in a bitter and cynical sort of way.

Broadband too slow, it proclaimed.

It seems that the UK rate of 20 megabits per second is holding them back, when countries like France and Korea offer 5 times faster.

Yes, well, us Kiwis can understand why that would be a problem; after all, our typical premium broadband rate of 500 megabits is; what? Oh, that's 500ks? you mean about a 40th of the UK rate?; a 200th of the Korean rate?

Do you think that might be holding us back as well?
