Ahh so its you AND my mother that reads it then Drew ^_^. Glad to see that I've doubled my readership.

I had my tongue in cheek a bit with the dongle comment, but the point I was making was that 2MB isn't really the forefront of the digital economy.

Especially when you think about Korea, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, the Netherlands and the Scandinavian countries would find it laughable at the present time. I was really disappointed at the lack of imagination that went into the report. C'est la vie.

Ged: I read it too, and to the best of my knowledge I'm not your mother, so looks like you've got another reader :)

What strikes me about the 2Mb figure is that it might become a target which those pitching for public services are expected to meet. If your service requires more than 2Mb to work well, then chances are you'll score badly on any criteria involving reducing social exclusion.
