Get Out Of You Mommy's Basement!

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on March 16, 2007 12:43 AM
You might be surprised at how much of the western world does not offer easy internet access. I frequently travel to places(towns/cities) where I go for several days at a time without any easy internet access. I could get it in an emergency but, 9600bps over a satellite phone is both agonizing and expensive. Beyond that you can often find seedy internet cafes that are not only expensive but also a health hazard and not somewhere that you'd like to frequent.

Unlike Mommy's basement, there are lots of places in the world without cheap low-latency broadband access.
