Broadband down the toilet

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/default.stm

Well fibre down the sewer to be more accurate. They are starting to lay 100mb fibre down people's sewers - nice ready made ducts to every house.

It looks a great idea but I suspect my mate from dynorod will be rubbing his hands with glee!!!

They got your problem licked too, just line the bottom half of your septic tank with tin foil and use satelite connection instead Then you can down load and upload as much crap as you like
