I have BB @ home..... It was the easiest thing I have ever had to convince the wife to let me get. But the factor here is should I or shouldn't I. The answer is simple. If it's available in your area then you should get it. Now I'm going to sit down at let other's have a say......

But I'll start the ball rolling with....

1,000,000 uses for BB

1. Sending Digi Pics to developers to print & return to you. I will happily post the url of the company I use. The maximum price you will pay for 40 photographs delivered to your door is £7.50...

I'm in the same position. I have to ask what would I use it for? I'm not into online gaming (I'm not good enough! :) ) and I haven't come across anything on the 'Net that can't be accessed with good old-fashioned dial-up. It's also way to expensive at the moment.

To get broadband are:-

1) High internet usage...

2) Downloading of (big) files...

3) Email is constantly being downloaded...

4) Some websites have "low" or "high" versions, with BB you choose the "high" version...

5) Online gaming is improved...

6) Sending and recieving of high quality audio and video streams...

7) Show off to your neighbours

8) Downlaoding and viewing of websites can be done at the sametime...with dial up you have to wait <> Your impatient, BB is the way to go...

9) Thats all i can think off...

10) cya.
