What "depends" on the internet? Not flaming, just want to hear what you say depends on the internet?
My job requires the use of the internet for all my personnel issues, 401K, pay, etc. Those have all been centralized in one area. While there are phones for overseas people and those at places without connections, it is not the easiest way to go.

You can still access the Internet without BB. Dialup will allow access to all that you have stated.

Well why don't you go try it again for a few months? Ever try to accomplish anything on the internet in the past few years without broadband?

Hell, we had a 768Kbps SDSL line at work that was painfully slow until a few months ago and our current 3Mbps Biz Class Cable line is getting there.

Mevans, if the average economy car can get you from A to B doing about 60 MPH, but you buy a real tricked our Vette or something that can do 80+ easily, aren't you still both getting from point A to B, just one gets there faster?

I guess then we should all have more affordable luxury cars or sports cars so we can all move around faster too.

and 768 is hardly "painfully slow" - Just more to prove that BB is a luxury. (And again, at work, it's generally called business class networks.. the topic here is broadband which is usually a home service term.
