This narrow band connectivty is a real pain. It's such a long time that I had to rely on dial up that I'd forgotten how sloooowww it is. It makes working from home impractical - I don't have plans to receive (let alone send!) any 3mb files for a while. I'm getting 42.6kb/s at best right now, sometimes as low as 37.2kb/s. Not good. Not even a bit good. But there is something to look forward to. My new Intel modem, courtesy of BT, arrived over the weekend. I plugged it in, installed the drivers ... everything looks ok. Except, I guess, the exchange doesn't know I'm ready to use broadband yet. Roll on 3rd September.
