Not quite sure where you're coming from (apart from Carbis Bay obviously).
I don't understand this technology myself I have a couple of cuddly snakes that sort of thing out for me but I have to say, in my practical experience, the internet connections (I'm on bog standard v90 dial-up) are ****ing appalling.
Whilst attempting numerous uploads/downloads the connection has been so bad that I have been forced to entertain myself by watching paint dry. The worst bit of that being what to do after the paint has dried and you're still waiting for something to happen.
PS. Thanks for the congrats on the site.
PPS. Haven't you got a spellchecker  or have you been having a TFI Friday moment down the pub?
PPPS. The word is that broadband is on the way in Feb but given the current appalling connections and rumours that trying to connect to ADSL is even harder I'm not holding my breath.
