Xtraordinary Nonsense

Can someone please explain what is extraordinary about 256k internet access and why it justifies 3 full colour pages in the metropolitan dailies? Should it even be called broadband? This is surely advertising at its worst, fooling  most of the people etc...

Mines now 3.5Mbps, which is a shit load faster. Porn is coming down with speed. My hand can hardly keep up.

Where did that figure come from? I don't think anyone in New Zealand offers a speed that slow unless you over-downlaod like buggery.

That figure came from the ad run by Telecom. That's their basic offering, for whic h you pay the stated price.

You've got to pay $50 to get a good service. 3.5Mbs and 10gig of downloads. My mum would use the 256k one. Mainly because she's not into full length hard core German snuff films like I am.
