If you are aware of Australian internet access, it is quite different to the rest of the world, particularly broadband. I am sitting here on a 512/128K ADSL internet connection,
I am not sure what you mean, "different", unless you mean very very expensive. My Melbourne ADSL costs A$170 per month for 512kbps and an embarrassingly small download inclusion. I presume you're luckier to be paying less than this extortionate rate.
