Question Is broadband worth it?

Interesting article for you net geeks

http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2002/...206260066.html

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

As appealing as broadband is I just can't justify the costs they ask.

I just dial into work, start a Terminal Services session on my play server that's sitting on my desk and go for gold. Company Internet link ownz me!:s3

I was thinking of having ADSL once Telstra has it up and running in Perth but if they're still having reliability problems I'm not going to waste my money until it's working perfectly.

Not that it's the fastest cable connection around, Neighorhood Cable is OK here. And compared to dial up, along with a extra phone line, there was only a couple of bucks difference.
With this I can D/L gig's of stuff.
