    56k?....

    Do people still have 56K?

    I'd of thought EVERYONE would be on at least 576..... (unless your area doesn't have it of course)

    What are the chances of someone owning up to this?

    My parents have 56k still, a there's no broadband coverage in their area. They considered this radio based system, but it was very expensive and would require a large number of people in the area to sign up to it. It's a pain cos their area isnt cabled either! I think some people in the area are petitioning BT to get their act together. The worse thing is that more and more websites just assume that users are on broadband, adding graphics etc and just being less efficient with their designs, making it prohibitivly slow to use dial up.

    Similar thing happend when digital teletext came out on freeview digital. Teletext was just text on analogue TV. I assumed it would be the same (or similar) only super fast on digital tv. But no. They decided to add pointless pictures and graphics, making it just as slow to access the info you need!! (Btw, I am aware that digital text has increased in quality in recent years, Im talking about when it first came out about 5 years ago or so)
