Nothing but whale cutlets, seal blubber, cod liver oil and polar bear steaks every day. You'd love it here, kas. When did you say you were moving again?

Hehe, accidentally bumping into you is too horrible to contemplate so just let me know when you're coming and I'll alert Immigration and have you stopped at the border and forcibly returned to your fascist rathole, you damn trampoline homogenic closet liberal. :lol:

I gather net speeds suck in Australia, most of USA and also some Western European countries as well, but highest speeds are in Asia (e.g. Japan, S-Korea, HK), Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.

http://mashable.com/2011/09/21/fastest- ... fographic/

mighty, think on the bright side:
The slowest Internet, according to the study, is in the Congo, with an average of just 13 KBps, a speed that would make even a 1990s dial-up Internet user cringe.

Pretty poor compared to some here, but it suffices. UK is generally not that great for broadband infrastructure, I gather

Visited London for a bit last year and liked it a lot. Aside from the last day. But I never leave the house, so wherever I go there will be plenty to do :P If I ever decide to leave my lodgings in the UK that is...

Strange, where do you live? I assumed that you live in Finland because of your username, but I'd think that you have to live in a pretty remote location if your Internet connection is that bad.
