Excerpts: "Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) just aren’t keeping up with their promises. Many of them are advertising superfast broadband speeds they know full well they cannot deliver, offering speeds of ‘up to’ 20Mb but delivering an average of just 6.5Mb. And what does this mean for the customer at the end of the line? Buffering, delays and not getting the broadband you are paying for..... Faster broadband means better broadband ....Staying connected is central to our lives and we all deserve broadband that we can trust. .... I’m challenging all broadband providers to be honest with their customers."
He's really just asking for truth in advertising.
Meanwhile, 50 ISPs Harbor Half Of All Infected Machines! "The study analyzed 90 billion spam messages from 170 million unique IP addresses captured between 2005 and 2009, and found that just fifty (out of tens of thousands) of global ISPs are responsible for about half of all infected machines. The study found that larger ISPs actually have fewer infections per user than smaller ISPs, and contrary to common wisdom, that "high connection speeds are associated with lower botnet activity."

That's funny because the number 1 value add is anti-virus and anti-spam combos.
