Of course.  No-one queries that.  And those of you who live in the USA are 
stuck with what it offers.  Most of you like it.

But the Internet infrastructure is very poor, and is obviously even worse than 
I realised.  I knew that Tim had problems, and that the Internet in the USA 
is awful, but DSL - ouch!  

We have a few farmers having to manage on dial-up still, and even the 
government has woken up and is doing something because it causes them such 
problems.  But they have cows not server farms.

It comes from being early adopters.  We anglophones are stuck in the past.

I've just been looking up DS3, which I didn't know.  I knew that the Internet 
provision in the USA was bad, but I hadn't realised how bad.

I could have this:
Zen is my ISP.  They have checked my line and said that I would actually get 
78 meg.  But I am getting 20 meg for £18 a month including tax, for more 
bandwidth than I use, so I can't justify the price hike to myself now I am 
more or less retired.  And the UK is bad in Internet terms.  (That is 
expensive in UK terms, because it is good in UK terms.)  And I am in a rural 
area.  As you say of the US, it is better in large urban areas.

Wouldn't you rather change busines or emigrate Tim?  You really are up against 

Can we not get TDE hosted pro bono by somebody good in a good country for
