More and more peoples connect to the Internet, from their home, using broadband. If you do: What's your "speed" and in what country do you live?

We have DSL and it works 24 hours a day. If I'm not working on here then it's running surfers. I could never go back to dial-up now, no way!

Well, if you only use it to connect to the internet, and you're not using it very much, I guess it's only a matter of speed, but if you have DSL you get access to other services such as IP-telephony, IP-Mobile, even TV.channels.
