Figured its not Linux related so into OT it goes;

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/click_online/6113138.stm

Shows just how much we are lagging behind in this arena. Although the Americans are further behind us (More won't give home users high speed than can't)

Anyone think it will hit off?

High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA). Dont you get pissed off with all these initials(DYGPOWATI)? If it continues (IIC) it will all end up like text speak (IWAEULTS). I shall then either (ISTE) enter a nunnery (EAN) or take up vows of Chastity and Baldness (OTUVOCAB)
