Difficult to argue with that choice although some in rural areas without broadband may disagree.

For me, sat-nav technology has transformed all aspects of travel/transport navigation and destination finding to a fine art, and in my mind it is as great an impact on everyday life as Windows was when it first appeared.

The one thing that makes most of the work .. the humble battery. Without the improvements in battery technology mobile phones would still be 'le brick' size, ditto MP3 players.

broadband wins hands down,for all the reasons mentioned in the article.

By 2012 - if what BT says is true - everyone who lives in a city or large town will have access to a 'superfast' connection. There's also the prospect of an Internet TV service available via a £200 set-top box as early as next year.

Where's all that bandwidth going to come from, and more importantly, who's going to pay for it - do you think it's about time that our government stopped 'prioritising' universal broadband access, and starting investing some of our money in it?

I don't agree with a 'Broadband tax' when I'm paying out a fair sum each month for a 50 MegBit Virgin connection which is my choice. But BB has changed the way I live my life, & it's a bit worrying how quickly you become accustomed to a 50 meg connection.

Roll on 100 MegBit! it must be said a lot of the time things aren't much quicker as you are in the hands of the server speed of the site you are on, etc. It was nice however to download the 'Auto-Route' Beta, over 2 gig in the time it took to make a cup of tea.

only wish virgin would extend there cable an extra 50 feet on to my road :o(

smackheadz, I live in a small village 3 miles or so from the exchange & my ADSL was dreadful. Just over half a MegBit. When I got a letter from Virgin to say I was in a connection area I was very surprised.

there are only 90 or so houses in the village I don't know what NTL was thinking of when they originally ran the cables up the road. Unless there are wheels in wheels in a house?
