ADSL internet has been the crux of the nation's communications for decades now; we've been using it since the switch from dial-up internet and the plan for the country includes it for a long time to come.
It's ancient and archaic, and moves slower than those sausage rolls they sell at the service station but by golly we're sticking with that son of a beesting no matter how bad it is for the economy.
But what's the best use of this rust bucket piece of infrastructure? Here's six exciting ideas on how to make the most of it:
Log into AOL
Chat with friends on MSN Messenger
Play 1998 game of the year Age of Empires Gold Edition which you got from a box of Corn Flakes online with the family (if you get a fax your connection might drop out so be careful)
Customise your Myspace™ account and organise your top friends
Update your CD burning software overnight
Spend the weekend downloading a low res bootlegged copy of The Matrix
