Australia: Not so Big on Bandwidth

My hotel has two connectivity options, I can either sit in the lounge and pay by the minute to use a machine any one could have installed anything on or I can pay silly money to get wireless for a couple of hours - and to add insult to injury if you buy a days worth you get a cap on how much you can download. Starbucks has never looked so appealing! (and no, it’s not just the waitresses accent). I also heard today that they’re rolling out 24Mb ADSL2 to certain parts of Sydney and yet they’ve got a 10Gb a month download cap. Gah!

On the plus side the Uni is supposed to have a connection of firehose power, so I know what I’ll be doing when I get there tomorrow morning.
