Well I wish I had oodles of bandwidth but in fact, as anyone who knows me
will tell you, VIA are different from the other ISPs here in that our Data
Centre is not (and never has been) in the same location as our office.
As for the happier employees, I'd be a happier employee if I was going home
every night to a cute nymphomaniac blonde - but that's hardly a serious
business issue. And I'm not sure how expenses would be lowered if instead
of paying £100 a month in ISDN call charges you were paying £100 a month in
broadband connection (which is not an unlikely price for the service).

It is fact the case if you can't afford to attend this - you probably won't
be able to afford broadband anyway.
