>Yep. That's what 2Mb/s ADSL broadband did for me when it arrived in 2004. Made all the difference to my ability to work.

Agree, getting initially 1.5 and subsequently 2.5~5Mbps mobile broadband made a huge difference in my ability to work from home.

>Having twenty times faster than that now is nice, but makes very little difference.

Having had circa 35/7Mbps FTTC for a couple of years now, I would disagree, but that is probably more to do with having teenagers playing on the Xbox and watching YouTube etc. during school holidays and it not impacting on my work usage.
