lets see, recent figures in the economist say >50% penetration of highspeed in US.
That's the 50% that actually use he internet for something besides email.
Actually i don't know what that 50% means. 50% of the internet users have high speed access, 50% percent of the people in the US have high speed access - no, thats too high.
and >20% globally.
Globally? Before your trip when you realy want information, you'll wait for it on that slow connection, and the advertisers will be happy. Right?
I used to read this sight on a dial-up, started at 14.4, but here weren't any popups or so much graphics then. HS wasn't available at attracive rates, or in very many places.
Sorry for sounding antagionistic.
