Well I'm most certainly on the poky side of the download equation. However, for the most part I'm able to live with it as my general browsing isn't downloading media files, etc. There are times when I would like to view a video clip that may be referenced here, but that really is out of the question.

If however, I was able to get high speed broadband then for a large amount of time it would be idle by comparison to its potential. Though I guess if you have it you will find a use for it and adapt your browsing habits.
