Re: [SLUG] ADSL with two pair cable [slightly OT]



They are in the mountains now ;)
Glenmoore park has ADSL as well but its one rack is now full
(all 80 positions or something silly like that) i think my
installation was in the last 20 places on the glenbrook exchange

ADSL really hasnt been publicised alot (tv ads etc) so i think
at this point its really being taken up by the more technologically
inclined (eg. linux gurus and counter-strike players)

I get a ping of about 80ms to my old isp (1/2 of dialing in)
and ssh is a whole new experience ;)
