Probably because she isn't likely to download a couple of thousand pirate movies and thousands of mp3s!!

Yeah, but she also wouldn't test out the system... which is what they want?

Or... actually, they'll give that limit to all older people in 1 area, so that they can search e-mails all day, and it'll actually be cheaper for the broadband networks in the long run probably, so the more people checking e-mails, the shorter the bandwidth, but to make up for the bandwidth not being used at a given time, pop up's will be appearing all over the place

To be fair she's got a bandwitdh advantage so if you gave it to loads of other people it would eventually bottleneck and not seem as fast. To support these speeds for a large number of users youd need to make sure your core architecture was up to scratch other wise youd hit issues with bottlenecking and people not getting their full speeds.

Same problems with 24Mbps broadband on adsl right now, BT's phone network dates back to the big bang and is out of date so very few people see anything like close to 24mbps although theyre working on their 21st centuryy fiberoptic network which should solve the problem

I recently had Virgin 10meg, on trial, but it never got above 6meg, they contacted me about 2 weeks ago, asking if I wanted to trial the 20meg connection, but until they upgrade the cabling around my area its never going to get anywhere near it.
