Very true — and sad. I've just visited South Africa for the first time after moving to the UK a year and two months ago.

I know I've become used to the wonders of UK broadband, but I was quite annoyed by the lack of Wi-Fi hot spots, the high cost when you DO find them and, of course, the speed.

South Africa beats the UK hands-down in so many ways, but broadband certainly isn't one of them.
