Here I'm sitting, using my phone for Internet with a 2 gig limit 
before the charges start coming in. I avoid 30MB downloads like 
the plague.

At home, with "unlimited" (i.e. how much bandwidth does DSL have 
anyway), I would feel differently. I also have friends with only 
dialup, and they will indeed feel very differently from me.

Cheers - Bill
