'Do you remember the days of "dial-up"? The strange electronic white noise, the waiting to connect, and the painful process of wading through web pages? The cheapest broadband offer may n...ot be the best. Nine million households in Britain have turned their backs on these slow internet connections, and switched to broadband, freeing up their phone and allowing them to really surf the web. Some 70,000 homes are now signing up for broadband every week, making it one of the fastest growing consumer products yet.'
