Australia must be one of the most expensive countries when it comes to
paying the ISP bill. I have a few friends in the US and Europe and
they pay zilch compare what we have to pay.

A few years back when ISDN was "the way to go" people in the US had
to pay $150 ALL UP for their ISDN connection compare to the $600 we
had to pay. (same in europe)

Why do you think soooooooooooooooo many people put their servers
into the US instead putting them locally?????


This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.
