Since this thread kinda feels like mine, ( but of course it really isn't) I wanted to know why there isn't an Internet Speed Survey-like thread on these boards like on GovTeen...

Haha, love the aussie style one

And as for defeating the purpose of the thread, it's good for those that wanna think they know them all and post on the thread with their own ones that no one else would say...for example

CBEMA ---- Computer and Business Equipment Manufacturers Association

How cool am I joking..
