Internet, Schminternet
My rental contract expires in about two months which is very fortunate for me because my employer is moving from the outskirts of Prague to the center around the same time. I was looking for an apartment that's near the new office location today when I found out that there are one or two ISPs that offer 1Gbit/s Internet speeds for an impossibly low 25€/mo in select districts of the city. The only problem is that they're all about 40 minutes away from my future workplace. I have two choices now. I can either move so close to the office that I can get to work in 10 minutes and make do with 40Mbit/s Internet speeds or I can move to the outer districts, get to work in 40 minutes and enjoy 1000Mbit/s Internet speeds in return.

Hmm... decisions, decisions... Consider

If you are not downloading a ton of shit , 40mb/s is enough, I would choose to be closer to work.
You are also losing an hour a day more in traveling to work for more internet speed, and you know what they say...time is money.

More travel also equals more time spent in a situation where there could be an accident.

Unfortunately it's an all-or-nothing kind of situation because of the cable technology used in most places. You can either have a sub-100Mbit/s or 100-1000Mbit/s connection here.

RE: Internet, Schminternet
I work from home most of the time (for a large IT company) and most of my work involves writing reports, creating presentations etc and when I liaise with colleagues and often clients I use web-ex, teleconferencing or similar.

I also live in the middle of nowhere in rural England.

I get a measly 7 to 8 Meg.

But it works for me.

Far better than sitting in a car/train/plane for hours at a time.

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike
