Hi John,
We would all like to have a fast broadband service at a reasonable price.
The National Broadband Network has made a promotional video to show what broadband could deliver to the home and you can see it here.
Another perspective is available in a video made by PBS that compares  broadband services in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom with those available in the USA. It also highlights some interesting price comparisons. It can be found here.  
Closer to home, our club has three meetings next week as follows:
Tuesday 21 June - Seniors -  G. Grant - 9:30am - 12:30pm
The group will start with the usual question and answer session at which members are encouraged to share their computer problems.

It will be followed by a review of the Woody Leonhard's series "Don't pay for software you don't need". Graham also has some useful utilities to demonstrate.
Tuesday 21 June - Genealogy -  T. Eakin - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
John Shortland will lead the group this month. He proposes to explore some "Guidelines to Preparing and Publishing Your Family History".
Friday 24 June - Digital Photography -  P. Collard - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Peter will start the meeting with the usual question and answer session and look at the photos members have taken on the topic of Macro Photography.
He will then introduce several interesting pieces of software that he has discovered recently which show amongst other things how to tell if a photo has been "photoshopped" and how to add optical filter effects to photos.
The main topic for the meeting will be "Unwanted Light" which will mainly cover "lens flares" and how to avoid them or use them for artistic effect.
The membership promotion vouchers are now available at all meetings.
