Xtra broadband: Ever so slighly less backwards

As many in New Zealand are already aware, we're frustratingly behind when it comes to the wonders of broadband internet. In general it is very expensive, very slow and has been capped quite harshly. Telecom has of late, decided to generously make us slightly less backwards by upgrading the speeds so we can feel slightly better for paying a hideous price for not much. As it turns out, the new telecom 'upgrade' may not actually be all that worth-while after all. Although probably not as positive a sign as some would believe, it is a start at the very least.
